395 Fall Road Trip


We get the bug in the fall. It is time for a road trip. Occasionally leaving your beautiful home surroundings for a different location my seem foolish but it isn't. We have found our appreciation of the seasons expanded when we venture down the road.

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.
