  1. I agree completely. I do love retirement though I miss the teachers I used to work with.

  2. A very productive and interesting day. One of the parts of retirement I love the most is the freedom to be spontaneous -- just pick up and go to the store, drop in on the 'kids', or paint -- today I decided to paint the downstairs bathroom and the backsplash behind the stove. Got everything out -- I'll begin tomorrow morning.
    And Maggie, I love the perspective from that hill.
