What does it mean? Do you travel? Are you quietly sitting home?
Are you doing all the things you had no time to do when working?
Are you enjoying your retirement?

Happy Easter to those who celebrate it. I am not a Christian, so I don't. Except to the extent that we are all forced to. Had to make sure I did my grocery shopping last night, b/c stores are closed or open with only limited hours today. You'd think they were giving away merchandise, with all the items that were sold out.

I have a friend who used to live in Las Cruces, NM, on the edge of the wilderness. They had to be very cautious about bringing their pets inside at night or the coyotes would kill them.

One of the things that I'd wanted at Trader Joe's was crimini (aka baby portobella) mushrooms, and the whole ones were all gone. I expressed my displeasure, b/c that particular store is often out of something that I want. The other store is more likely to have what I want, but it is more out of the way, and when I went it was late and I was almost out of gas. After a while another employee came up to me while in another dept. with a package of the mushrooms and said she was told I wanted those, and that they had just found more in the back. I sought out the first employee and thanked her for telling them that wanted those mushrooms. I figured that if I can spout off when I am displeased, I should be at least equally as quick to compliment when I am pleased.

Mornin'' l agree and wish l had more space to grow vegies. l dedicated two of my barrels to trees. Crepe Myrtle and Plum (which might produce food). And one to a clematis. So l have only 5 barrels left and then a few large black pots which l have planted potatoes in. l have an artichoke. The celery that l started from stems all died. One good thing is l see a lot of bees around the blossoms of decorative plants. Small bees.

Wackiness l too am sorry to hear you broke ribs. They don't do much for them do they? Most people break hips when they fall. You had to be different?

Magpie enjoy the little ones. While you can. Smile. l can't imagine trying to keep up with little ones.

wackiness, I sure know the feeling. I spent the past 2 days hauling out irrigation pipe along side 1/2 and 1/3 my age. I didn't even try keeping up this year. After the first day I didn't think I could go on but some how managed to get through yesterday. Lucky for me the boss is a serious Catholic and we have today off. I hope your ribs heal fast.

trugas, those tomato plants sure do grow. I put a 5 foot fence around mine and they grow way over the top and droop over. With the predicted price of fruits and vegetables this year it will be nice to have a garden.

magpie, ain't Wisconsin great? My wife's cousin sent pictures of the latest storm in northern Wisconsin. That is the third one in 2 weeks for a total of 4 feet in some areas. There is a scientist that is predicting a mini ice age for us. Maybe he knows what he is talking about.

Hello goldicolds. Animals such as wolves, bears, cougars etc are either totally or partially protected now. That may be part of the reason we are seeing more of them. Of course encroaching on their territory is also part of the cause. We certainly are seeing (or hearing of) more of all three around here lately.

Good to see you here too, Goldie. Away from all the s*** talk. Yes
2many it is time for spring. And it has sprung here. My clematis has put on quite a show this year, and still is. The artichoke is coming on, now the size of a baseball.

I set out tomatoes and they remain small, but boy do they ever end up huge. Way over my head.

A thought just came to me about us older folks and dogs. The kids are grown and gone, sometimes don't visit much, so pets substitute. Think so?
So we are hanging in the 70's here.

Can't wait to see my son on Easter.

I hope we can quit talking about winter storms soon. IT'S TIME FOR SPRING!

Many people think of their pets as children. They must realize though, that not everyone thinks that way. I like animals but think of them as that. A dog will be loyal to you from day one. It may take a child 20 years to get there. But it is worth the wait.

It is fun to watch animals because they are not trying to impress you. They are just being themselves. Refreshing.

Hi. I've been meaning to drop in for a long time, but here I am finally.

Another winter storm is here. Probably heading your way, 2manyfords.

Tru, your story about the cat and dog remind me of the cat I used to have way back in the day when I lived in Atlanta. At one point there was a dog from across the street that used to chase him up a tree. But they were just playing. He wanted the dog to chase him. It was funny to watch.

Another time he had been injured and had a splint on his leg. It was healing and he was running around the house. Then a friend of mine and her daughter came over, and all of a sudden that cat was limping around, as if to say, "look at poor me." We had a good laugh.

Now I'm allergic and don't go near cats or dogs if I can help it. I hate it when people think everybody should love their Precious as much as they do, and let the animal go up to whoever it wants to. When I try to avoid it, they might say, "Oh, it won't bite." Well, maybe not, but it can still get its dander, the allergen, on my clothes, and then it would make it's way into my house. No, don't let your animal go over to people and rub against them unless you know the person doesn't mind.

Oops, didn't mean to go into a rant. Sorry. :)

Amazing how some people don't get that wild animals are just that: wild.

Did you see the woman in (FL?) who was attacked by a bear in her own yard? Frightening -- it looked so big. She'd been inside an enclosed porch, but her children were outside so she had to go get them. They didn't say what happened to the children, but I assume they are ok or they would have said. The mom was very lucky to be alive. It had started pulling her toward the woods.

As humankind encroaches more and more on animal habitat, there are less places for them to go, so there will, unfortunately, probably be more of this sort of thing. It's scary, though.

Yes they are awesome up that close. I saw park ranger chasing people back to their cars who were off trying to get close to a herd, Must have been the same family l saw at Grand Canyon climb fence to sit out on jutting precipice. LOL.
I enjoy people watching, but animal watching is way more fun now.
There is a lady who is training her kitten on a leash and she follows it around in front of my apt. Thru the small shrubs and it stalks and pounces and just thoroughly enjoys himself. He gets along fine with one dog and so isn't afraid when other dogs walk by but the dogs get all excited to chase him. Funny. The dog owners just try to go on.

Bison are awesome creatures. I always give them lots of room. I can't believe the idiots that walk right up to them to get pictures. I have seen 2 people get charged doing that. Once in the backcountry I had a big bull walk up to within 10 feet of me. All I could do is keep a tree between us. I felt very small.

I left Montana yesterday morning and got home early this morning. Had a short nap and now must get at some things around here as I got called back to work on Monday. Montana was wonderful. My cabin is right in the field where the cows were calving. New arrivals every day. The cows are so nosey that I believe they would have come right into the cabin if I had left the door open. Great trip but it is always good to get home.

Isn't retirement a great time of life? l am enjoying it and have been retired so long it is almost like l forgot how it was before. Not really, but l am settled into retirement and enjoy this type of living. Too bad we have to work to get to this part .. smile.

Target's mom..l am sorry the wheezies have you down. l was thinking along the lines of heart problems being so tired all the time. Guess it is just allergies and the meds I take to offset them. Like you, it has been a couple of weeks of just feeling tired.

Housekeeper said she told her husband that she thought l was firing her. lthought I was very clear that she would still have 20 hours a month. But she heard different. She did get the negativity part. Not that she is negative but the stories are mostly problems and she knows now l don't want to hear them.

Life is Good.Wow 8 or more people out in front and so l had to go to see what the problem was. l thought a cat was being looked for, but no. It was an elderly woman,deaf, who let her shower run for an hour and a half. She is OK, just forgot it and too deaf to hear it.

one800rv, sounds like you are living the American dream.

I got a call from the boss and he wants me to start back to work on Monday. I had to remind him that I would be in Montana so he will have to wait a week. It's great to be 'semi' retired. I am leaving tonight about 6:00 and should be in Eastern Montana about 5:00am tomorrow. After a stop in Jordan I should make the ranch about eight o'clock, in time for morning coffee. Looks like I might hit bad roads in Minnesota as they had another big winter storm there again yesterday. Duluth MN had 3 feet of snow on the ground yesterday. ENOUGH!!

Talk with you when I get back.

Living full-time in the RV. Loving retirement and never looked back. We both drove School Bus for more than 30-years so driving the RV is no problem for either of us. Love the beach! Would also like to travel out west again. See some National Parks like Arches and Canyonlands :)

Retirement isn't for sissies.
You can't live the same lifestyle as before, but you do have plans that help stretch your income. I get $500 a month help on my rent. That's a biggie.
I do live in senior housing and l am sure you have heard me complain about things that aren't perfect here. BUT it is a roof over my head, and l have enough for food. I try not to have bills. My Mother never had help like this. Bless her heart. I appreciate the plans that help me. 80% of my medical is paid. Medicare. People get help with their heating bills.
I know it seems it won't work out. But with adjustments, things have improved greatly for me, from when l first retired. Found the proper place to live, I have a decent car. It's all good.

The rains aren't over yet, but during a lull yesterday, l went out and bought food. I have still to put it all away.

Geez Targetsmom, I always thought it was expensive to live in Canada and now it gets worse? A dollar to send a letter? And health insurance? I thought you had national health care. Is $125 for one person or a family? Here insurance costs $500 - $1000 and higher a month and does not cover everything. I hope your government isn't telling you what they tell us, that there is no or very low inflation. I guess they think we are stupid as most things continue to cost more.

Getting ready for Yona, a new winter storm heading our way. I hope it is done by Saturday night as I will be driving right through where it is going to hit. It is only a few days since Xenia hit the same area with a blizzard. It is cold and windy here now so I plan on spending most of today inside. I think the robins are planning to head back south.

This is not an April Fools Day joke ~

BC hydro increased their rates by 9 %

BC Ferries increased their rates by 4 % and took away the free ride for seniors .

ICBC ( car insurance ) increased their rates by 3.4%

Medical insurance monthly rate rose to $ 125 a month

Canadian stamp went from 83 cents to a dollar .

These rises are huge to people on a fixed income .

A few more years to reach retirement age Trugas.

Congrats on 47 years of wedded bliss 2manyfords .

I am sure you all heard about the small earthquake we had in Wisconsin. Scary, scary. No major damage, but now there is a small hill or area that is rising in the western part of the state. They are not sure what it is but some fear a volcano could be forming. I doubt it but who knows.

Then there was the heavy snow along the Minnesota/North Dakota border. I will be driving through there Saturday night. Hope it's the end of that until next winter. I drove through there last April and hit snow and ice both out and back on my trip to Montana.

I worked in the garden all day yesterday and am paying for it now. I won't be planting for a month and a half but wanted to get a jump on it. I saw the boss and sounds like I will be going back to work when I return from out west. Now I will have lots to complain about.

Yes, Targetsmom l am much happier and feel it is worth the expense in my case, to be able to save the gas to the library, and to have my own choice of time to go online. Also Library is closed at times when office is as well. I am not a fan of Starbucks. So this is best for me. Even tho l do get frustrated with the wires in wireless. Smile.

Been working on my taxes (only have to do Federal income tax, Texas has no state income tax). I'm mostly listening to the news.

Went out and had a three-hour lunch. No real reason to hurry back, especially when you have an iPad so you can make comments on Facebook and GasBuddy. Took my Boeing annual report with me but didn't read it. That said, I'm very unlikely to get rid of my Boeing stock because I'm a Boeing retiree.

Fisher Investments figured I have a 50% chance of living to 92. If I do, I'll spend more of my life getting pension payments than paychecks. While there were some things that were really great when I worked, overall I'm much happier as a retiree than I was as an employee. (Things stunk when Space Station was transitioning from development to sustaining engineering. No fun making tiny software changes at all.)

trugas, I will probably never give up doing things that I am too old to do until someone grabs and stops me or I just physically can't do it anymore. What would I have to complain about then?
