Retirement is bittersweet for us. A carefree life of travel adventure and musical performance on the road has turned to watching my wife's Alzheimer's take her slowly and steadily away. I'm not looking for pity, but just had to write it down. I'm sorry if this is inappropriate here. I'm just a bit down tonight after listing the Airstream for sale on eBay. There goes another piece of the dream.
I was sorry to hear about your wife's illness. I can't begin to imagine how it must be for both of you. It is a good reminder to savor every moment out of life you can because no one knows what happens where the road will take us. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
