Sparky checks off bucket list items 14 and 15: Visit the Rocky steps and the Liberty Bell

Sparky got to spend a day in Philadelphia, where he checked off two of his bucket list items by running the famous “Rocky steps” and visiting the Liberty Bell. The 1976 film Rocky made the front steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art almost as much of a cultural landmark as the art inside the museum. The Liberty Bell was cast in 1752 and has since become a Philadelphia landmark and an iconic symbol of American independence. Through the window behind the bell, you can see Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence and United States Constitution were both signed.

Sparky turned 65 on March 18, 2016, and we have been pulling out all the stops to help him celebrate! He’s created a bucket list of 65 activities and events he’d like to accomplish from now through October. As he checks them off his list, we’ll make sure to share them with you. Some of Sparky’s wishes are pretty lofty, while others are just fun or a bit silly. Check in weekly to see where he goes and what he’s up to!
