PRECISELY!!! Of course back then, we were much younger.
Time now to do for others with some volunteering and of course more time for "Streaming"!

In dog years, I'm dead!

Yep, that's the way to do it.

Adult kids have an adjustment when we retirees take off without them.

One child was sure we wouldn't like this extended travel stuff, said "I give it a year." Ummm---wrong. 4 1/2 years and still going strong.

It is such an absolute gift to be able to pursue pleasures in retirement, something to be grateful for every single day and not take for granted for a minute. You never know what is around the corner.

Doug says if it was taken from us tomorrow, life wouldn't owe us a thing.

He's right.

Travel safe, all--


🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚❤️

I'm a little late, but Congrats on retiring!

I pulled the plug in May of 2008- just months before the economic disaster. I'm so glad I didn't plan on putting it off until the end of that year- I probably would have been too scared and would still be working. I loved my jobs, but the past four have been the best of my life.

And I agree with FreshAir- there isn't enough time to do everything! I guess you can only fit so much fun into one day.
