I’ve turned 50 and now want to squeeze in all the fun I can (while I still can)! My husband and I are also raising two incredible sons who happen to be autistic. I also have a 34 year old, self sufficient, beautiful daughter. We don’t always have a lot of free time, but we love to travel when we can and we love food, although I have to be creative as both boys have dairy, egg, peanut and tree nut allergies. But we keep movin’ on!

In Search of Bruce Willis, (Bucket List Item)...
friend Linda facebooked me Friday night “Bruce Willis is in Providence. How did we miss that?” I remembered his daughter Scout attends Brown
University, so I googled Brown graduation and found that Memorial Day weekend
was the graduation.
Bruce Willis spotted on Thayer St. minutes ago! #RhodyRadar
Bruce Willis is in my dad's restaurant and I'm not there #figures
No big deal or anything
but Bruce Willis was at my restaurant today. #celebstatus

job OMG!!!! Die harddddddddd
Hola Bruce Willis, thanks
for visiting me this morning. #starstruck

It was the weekend, my
husband was busy working in order to get ready for us to go away for a few days
and my sons were home, one with a nasty cold.
The weather was cold, windy and rainy and it was just not possible for
me to get out and search for Bruce Willis, although I knew he would be at Brown
for most of Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
But also, I figured he’d want his family time and not have people going
up to him and invading his privacy, so it took all the willpower I had to not
go looking for one of my absolute FAVORITE movie stars and knocking off one of THE
top items on my bucket list.
I did however send the
following tweet to his gorgeous wife, who was also in Providence for Scout’s
graduation: “you have a beautiful
family-meeting Bruce, getting a photo w/him is on my bucket list-can u help? I
am in RI & he is here now too.” She
didn’t tweet me back.
Photos of the graduation
were posted later in the weekend.
Bruce looked a little irritated, so I
know I made the right choice, but on Monday I saw the following tweet:
Saw Bruce Willis at
It had been tweeted an
hour before I saw it. Venda is only a
couple of miles from my house and I dragged the boys with me on the chance he may still be around. We parked around
the block and took a walk around.
But alas, there was no Bruce Willis to be found.
So, this bucket list item
remains unfulfilled. But I must admit I enjoyed the brief fantasy of meeting Bruce Willis, and
asking him if he would please take a photo with me! And heck, if I had seen him walking while I was in my car, I would definitely have hollered out "Yippee Ki-AYE!!!
