A buddy of mine wanted me to go with him on one of his "wishes"...he wanted to buy a float plane and make his way from the US to Okinawa. He didn't do it.....but, kind of wish he had...good trip it would have been.

If you want an MS 63 or better (I actually saw one once) then you might want to sell a couple hundred ounces of gold, your house, a few cars, some stocks and bonds before you start looking.

Yes, either new tires or a new car. If my car starts having problems in the next few months, the new car want may replace my new tires want. Otherwise, hopefully I can wait another 4-5 years before the new car want. Of course, by that time, the new car may be a NEED.

Jeez....I really AM stupid, I thought the Morgan 1893 had something to do with the car.....not a coin.....I really prefer a Morgan CAR anytime....Don't care if it works very well as long as there is someone in the car who can fix it...near a pub preferably...

Still regaining my sense of balance after a stroke (very slow going here). But once that's done I wouldn't mind fleshing out the stable a bit. Already ride a cruiser, but would like a nice cafe racer as well (maybe a Triumph Thruxton).

I want a good foot spa that heats water and maintains that temperature

I do take a trip at least once a month, the main want that I'm succumbing to.

OK.... I am applying my (not really applicable) rights to what is WANTING. A foot massage does NOT qualify. Nice.....oh....so nice...but NOT qualifies. I had some inappropriate comments...but, being the "make nice" world that we live in......I chose...........

DW and I got back into camping the last 10 years and really enjoyed it. But we'd like to have an option other than a tent (amazing we have yet to encounter bad weather, unlike when our sons were in the boy scouts), particularly as we age. So a want is a popup camper, along with a mid-size SUV to pull it. We'd still bring the tent but having a choice would be nice. But, if we don't do that we figure we always have the cabin/lodge options at most places.

Camera gear - Nikon D4, 70-200mm f/2.8, 200mm macro f/4, 14-14mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4, 80-400mm VR, 200mm f/2.0 etc., etc.

And the hardest part of all - the knowledge and skills to use them effectively.

Helen,
You might want to check out ting.com for a smartphone. You can save much money over the big players. I purchased an LG Android phone for $80 and spend less than $11 out the door for data. Note I use PagePlus separately for voice for about $80/year.
