Reirement Decision was not mine...
(P.O.W, Alaska, USA)
I was a caregiver here in S.E Alaska. I was helping someone move things from the upstairs apt. Top landing collapsed and I followed, down past the broken planks and protruding nails; blah blah...fractures, etc.
As a result, I could not care for the elders and disabled, but gained more empathy than I had before.
Anyway, I retired 2011. AK is still my adopted home. It's a long story in between but retirement was not supposed to happen til my 70th birthday which is in 2 months from now.
Hey...not so bad!!😉
