It's been rainy here in MIchigan (with storms and floods elsewhere) so I am not complaining. It's GREEN everywhere, all my hosta's popping up their little heads in the garden. Happiness IS Spring!

Spring is what made ME retire! One day in April 2010, driving down the road to work, I saw so many beautiful flowering trees lining the streets near the County Building where I worked. I knew I was going to retire that year, family knew, but no date yet. I surprised myself that day - marched into the Director's office and said I was retiring in two weeks, not a month as I had expected for 30+years!

Retirees had told me, for years, "You'll know when you are ready..." I always wondered what the heck that meant,... but that perfect spring day, I knew it was right!

** NEW ** I started a NEWS site online. This is relatively new, and not perfected yet. It is a compilation of ALL THINGS RETIREMENT, from all over the web. If you care to see what's new in Aging and Retirement, you can visit and read the news all in one place. There are videos there too. This will update every Monday too. I am curious whether it's worth my time. Please check it out, and then hit REPLY to this newsletter -- tell me what you think.. Please!

Retirement Online Community

Join the Community and find new friends!

999 members and a handful waiting to be approved in -- Come and find new friends to write to (privately or in the community)! Why not share life and learn something new?

It's not easy deleting members that haven't posted in ages. I am deleting a few at a time and approving the same number into the membership. As you know, I am going to delete those who don't use the community. IF YOU ARE A MEMBER, POST, and all is well. OK? Thanks!

IF I decide to go over 1,000, and pay more, at least the next milestone will likely never happen -- 10,000. Grin! I will begin to charge for membership if I do this... unsure which way to go. Decisions, decisions....

To a Fun, Amazing, Wonderful, Friendship-Filled Retirement Journey!
