No, You Don’t Have To Suffer Deteriorated Old Age

Tuesday, September 26th, 2017   10:47 pm |  Category:   Health, Life   |  1 Comment  | Author:     bio

Old age in our culture refers to chronological age. It’s a number identifying how long we have been alive. That’s all it means.   Your chronological age is not a measure of your competence, maturity, appearance, behavior, attitudes or values. It is what it is — just a number. You and only you can give …more

How Does One Cope With Life’s Little Surprises?

As I sit here pondering what to write about, I stop for a moment, thinking briefly of what took place one week ago tonight (I am writing this article on September 17) and where we were when it happened. As many of us will never forget, Hurricane Irma decided to make its way through Lakeland …more

Labor Day — Celebrate Freedom from Work

If you’re retired, Labor Day is an excellent time for another celebration of freedom from work.   Held on the first Monday of September, Labor Day serves to mark the ‘end’ of summer.

Eclipsed by the Eclipse

Monday, August 28th, 2017   1:36 pm |  Category:   Life   |  Add Comment  | Author:     bio

One of the advantages of being retired is that whenever a noteworthy event comes along during normal working hours, i.e. an inauguration speech, a MLB playoff game, or (ta da) an eclipse, we seniors are generally free to watch it at our leisure.   Such was the case this week at our little fifty-five and …more

Does Your Retirement Future Include Road Trips…in an RV Perhaps?

Sunday, August 20th, 2017   5:20 pm |  Category:   Life, Retirement locations, Travel   |  2 Comments  | Author:     bio

Confident in the belief that life was about more than the career that I enjoyed, I retired on August 13, 2015, with the intent to begin the next chapter of a life well lived.  To be sure, I would miss all of the things that everyone mentions when leaving the work force—the friends, the challenges, …more

I have now lived in my tiny house on wheels for a year. It is a gypsy wagon also called a vardo, lovingly built by John Kaznecki of Maine. We set it on a Ford F150 truck with 5’x8’ bed last March.   How did this happen?   Well, I retired from work at the …more

Retirement – what exactly does that word mean? According to Wikipedia – Retirement is the point where a person stops working. For us, that wasn’t entirely true and to look at our lives now, we often ask ourselves the question: With all that we do on any given day of the week – when in …more

No matter how old we may become, at times we are kicked out of our comfort zone. As senior citizens, we have great wisdom in many areas and may be asked to share that knowledge with various groups of people. But some of us are terrified of speaking in public so we decline and miss …more
