When they were hanging someone they stood them on a bucket, put the noose around their neck, then kicked the bucket out of the way.

It's the list you make of things to do before you "kick the bucket" :!:
Movie recently made about that idea starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. Movie was quite funny, about 2 old coots skydiving, making amends, travelling to dream locations, etc.....
Most of us won't have their bank accounts and so our lists may be somewhat trite by comparison....
It is a concept well worth a conversation or two and many thoughts.
