I’m just kidding….other than this upcoming surgery thing, life’s treating me pretty well these days. But the question that keeps coming back as I adjust to being on Social Security is this: now that I’ve been freed from the stresses involved with trying to obtain (and keep) gainful employment, what does the rest of my life look…

I am up. That is a good thing. I feel lousy but considering how bad I have felt for the past few weeks, I am good. I may live yet…..LOL. That was my attempt at humor. Hey, I AM NOT A MORNING PERSON. EVER. I don’t suppose the dishes and the vacuuming could just magically…

Good Morning Wednesday, May 27, 2015.
