    Good story even if it's kinda sad and depressing...to me anyway. Even though I'm only 66 I feel my best years are over and it's all downhill from here...

    @Bill Boggs , that is some great story telling. I can see it exactly as you describe it. It brought a lump to my throat. You may be old and frazzled and wore out :D but you have a gift with words.

    That's exactly what I thought when I retired at age 63, tired and sick with COPD, never have worked for any one who had a retirement program., retired on social security. But since that time these have been the best years of my life, really.

    You definitely may not feel that way once you make the possible move to your daughters or somewhere else. You just can't give up that easy!
