Can I be so forward to say that you’re 74 not 94? Those going off to retirement homes have lost faculties that enabled them to live in their own homes so count your present wealth in all those things you can do

Now I like this advice. Yes I do have a few medical problems, but I can still ride the tractor, walk the dogs, develop websites, do photo shoots and sell pics. The new TV is here. I got a 40" Samsung that has a swivel base (So I can sit in my lounge chair), an internet card so I can join Netflix and download movies. I think it also makes my breakfast. The old 200LB Sony VEGA Trinitron is moving to the porch, but I had to buy nice Sauder TV stand that matches my porch furniture and an EdanPure heater to keep warm in the cold weather. Tomorrow night, the GS/SIL/and daughters will help to move the big beast and set up the new TV.

I also pre-ordered the new Nikon 70-200VR11 lens. A big expense, but I can sell the older lens to help defray the cost. Photography is a big hobby with me and I spend a lot of $$ on it.

Carpeting is next on the list. I have investigated a couple new cars, but that is really low on the list. I love my seven year old paid for Tank and it only has 55,000 miles on it. Right now, it's a keeper, sorry, auto dealers.

Yesterday, My 48yr old daughter mentioned (for the second time) that she could not wait for her children, ages 20 and 28, to finish schooling and move out. Then she would sell her little house and move back "home". I told her she had a long wait for those kids to leave the nest and besides, all my closets are full.
