Can open - worms everywhere.

All you can do is try to make sure the list gets shorter as you go.

When Elmo finishes a bucket list item on the tank he opens a cold beer and counts the caps at the end of the day.

It's an MG - I simply take my finger and stick it in the oil that's accumulated on the garage floor and smear it across the item I'm checking off.

Learned that trick from a Harley builder.
