jeff bridges, bucket list, alzheimers cost, thanks,football

those of you who saw true grit know that jeff bridges was
and is a great actor
did not realize he was in the last picture show

watched a pbs  american masters episode this week  titled
'jeff bridges:the dude abides education.  the life and career of
academy award-winning actor jeff bridges0
very interesting show
a close relative is a friend of his
he is in person like what is displayed in the pbs show
have more respect for him now as a person and an actor
try to see it on your local pbs station

again he should get the academy award for the movie true grits

ive created a bucket list to do while i know im
doing it
one is a trip down hwy one in california-am in
planning mode now for that trip

for my sisterinlaw she with the wet suitcase
(google that to the right and read about her wet suitcase)
my next item on my bucket list will require a passport

always told my wife she that i would travel anywhere
she wants as long as it doesnt require a passport
my life changes (eg my new diagnosis) makes me have a
new perspective on things

  1. Shawn and I are planning a date night to go see True Grit. Was my grand-dad's favorite movie, well really anything John Wayne was his favorite. Shawn doesn't go to many movies because he cant relax so I was excited when he said he wanted to go see this one.

  2. We just got a letter from ARC. My son was fascinated by you and I was thankful the good care you provided. I wish you the very best and will hold thoughts for the best outcome possible. It seems you have a lovely family and lots of interests to keep you busy and fulfilled. Best wishes and thank you!
