Retirement and the Single Baby

Saturday, March 3rd, 2018   11:43 am |  Category:   Humor, Life   |  2 Comments  | Author:     bio

I am now officially retired. Okay, I’m a writer and writers never really retire. I am now officially not getting paid regularly (which probably makes me ever more of a writer than I was.) Retirement, the few months of it that I have already experienced, appears to be like an infinite number of Saturdays strung together. …more

Stop Horsing Around

Saturday, February 3rd, 2018   4:53 pm |  Category:   Humor, Life, Travel   |  Add Comment  | Author:     bio

No matter how much research and preparation you do before traveling, things aren’t going to go exactly as you planned them. Flexibility is the key. The sooner you learn to roll with the punches the more fun and less stress you’ll have on your vacation.   During a recent trip to Iceland, we woke up …more

Happy Ending Massage

Saturday, January 6th, 2018   12:11 am |  Category:   Humor, Life   |  3 Comments  | Author:     bio

I never thought it would happen to me, but here I was in Vietnam with a big smile on my face as my massage concluded!   I love massages, but rarely treat myself to this luxury back in the States as they are so ridiculously overpriced. I mean, $100 an hour – seriously? It’s not …more

All I Got for Christmas Was a Colonoscopy

Sunday, January 29th, 2017   3:39 pm |  Category:   Health, Humor, Life   |  Add Comment  | Author:     bio

Christmas has come and gone. The presents have long been stored away in a closet or taken back to the store and returned. The last of the Christmas cookies and candy have disappeared and the decorations are safe in their boxes for another year.   While it is already well into January as I write …more

Retirement Cash: Bellybutton Lint Farming

Saturday, January 21st, 2017   3:29 pm |  Category:   Humor   |  6 Comments  | Author:     bio

When you work in the agri-business field, people just naturally expect you to be a walking Wikipedia when it comes to farm related matters. I receive at least a dozen calls a day from people asking for advice on topics ranging from growing peanuts to how many bones are in a chicken’s neck.   Another …more

Our Debut Novel Illuminates Creative New Paths for Retirees

Thursday, January 12th, 2017   11:06 pm |  Category:   Humor, Life   |  4 Comments  | Author:     bio

Have you ever dreamed of writing a novel, then having it become a best seller and maybe even a blockbuster movie? Well, that was my husband Ned’s expectation since I spent my career as a writer and editor for popular newsstand magazines. When you retire, you could have more time, and you may want to …more

The Case of the Missing iPhone

Friday, November 18th, 2016   2:44 pm |  Category:   Humor, Life   |  1 Comment  | Author:     bio

There was a time when I owned nothing that started with the letter “I”.   My first actual iPhone sighting happened innocently enough at a sporting goods store some years ago. While I stopped to look at some over-sized fish in the aquarium which was located in the center of the store, a movement to …more

Why Your Bucket List is a Good Servant but a Bad Master

Friday, October 7th, 2016   4:24 pm |  Category:   Humor, Life   |  4 Comments  | Author:     bio

You know how it is when you retire. You have at least a dozen things you plan to do: you will travel, take up golf, knit toques for homeless people, skydive, refinish furniture, work part time, learn Spanish, paint landscapes, volunteer, and figure out how to use a complicated camera. Stuff like that. And, you …more
