1. Ride the train in to NYC and see a Broadway show. Twenty-five years in Syracuse NY, and during that time I have never once visited NYC nor seen a play on Broadway. In a way, that's impressive. Impressive, but rather sad.
2. Go to Biscotti's, order something delicious and chocolate, sit at a table with coffee and desert and eat while looking out the window at North Salina Street. I have never been to Biscotti's. It seems as though most of the other members of my family have.
3. Use my passport and drive to Montreal where I would spend a weekend trying to speak French, eating in sidewalk cafes and pretending to be in Paris. I will never live as close to Montreal as I do now.
4. Visit the historic house museum in Liverpool near the corner of 2nd and Sycamore. I see it every year when we are in the village for the Memorial Day Parade, and sometimes other times too. It never happens to be open when I am there. I wish/hope/dream that someday I will write down the hours and visit it when it is open. Or perhaps it is not even a museum anymore, and I am already too late.
5. I would really like to see the University Hospital area near Almond and Adams finished and complete, not under construction. I declare, during the entire 25 years that I have lived here, that area has been under construction and bedecked with temporary trailers, temporary chain link fences, piles of dirt, orange cones and miscellaneous construction equipment. (I hope I have a better chance of achieving some of the other items on this list than I have of this one.)
