MDH did want to "move up" to a fancier home, but I told him I wouldn't sign for any debt beyond what his aunt had left him. He's already over 60 and with one son heading to college this fall and the "surprise" entering high school, we don't need a major mortgage to deal with.

You obviously have your eye on the ball!

I'd love to go to college again - I used to read through the course catalog while I was in school and dream about all the courses that didn't count for my degree. I'd love to try for something in the Arts & Crafts area - the push to keep up with computers turns into a grind after 30+ years.

You're telling me! Guess that's why I majored in Psych--thought it would be interesting to find out how people 'work', instead of machines ;-) And it was! The knowledge I now have, applied to both myself and others, helps me a lot in dealing with other folks, particularly when in stressful situations.

I thought I'd continue to take courses after a short hiatus when I graduated. The 'short' hiatus has turned into 4 years! And I live right across the street from a college! The thought of writing even one more paper fills me with dread. If I were over 65 I could audit a course for $15 and not have to take tests or write papers--my dream--the lazy man's college...guess I'm not 'wild-eyed, radical activist' material <G>
