Retirement Talk

WHAT to do with the rest of your life?


Del Lowery Retirement Talk is an audio podcast (written script a click away) intended to help people who are retired, or considering retirement, to examine their own lives. We will consider an active retirement life in all its facets - not just financial. A retirement lifestyle that has been considered  carefully is our goal. We want to encourage thought and action." Del Lowery - Host

394 Projects "You just need to get organized" has become a common phrase. In most cases for me it is true. We need all the help we can get to keep on moving. Projects work for me.

393 Neighbors


Retired people tend to be around the house when not traveling. We linger by the mail box and talk to neighbors of weather, recent trips or cars on the street. Having good neighbors doesn't happen by accident. We have to work at this.

392 Help?



"I'm from the government and I'm here to help": frightening or comforting words. We need to think a bit about that. Truth is stood on it's head by cliches all too often.

391 Exercise for the Brain


New studies indicate physical exercises do more for the mind than we might have imagined. Sure we can do crosswords or study a foreign language but perhaps we would be better off walking quickly around the block.

390 Working after Retirement?


We would all like to follow our bliss. It would be nice to be paid for doing what we love. Retirement may offer us this opportunity. It works for some.

389 End of Life Choice


Ending one's own life is a choice we all make. We either do or we don't. The twists of life events sometimes make that choice shift in value. It is something we might do well to consider rather than ignore for our own good as well as others.

388 Personal Experience


In this podcast I read a letter from a Sherri Robinson telling of her retirement experience. She is a listener and has given retirement some serious thought. Here she shares some of her ideas and suggestions. You are welcome to do the same.
