We're 68 & 69 and have been retired since 1995. Bought a house on the water in Florida and for a few years never looked back. Bought a new sailboat and cruised the waters of Florida.

Then, built a large house on a golf course, sold it, bought a motor home and fulltimed for a few years. Built a small winter home in Florida, got bored and moved closer to son & his family. Got bored again and built a new small house in an over 55 community here in NW Arkansas.

DH now has some serious health issues, and I've got a few of my own. We've loved every minute of retirement, goofing off, wandering around this beautiful country of ours, having no responsibility to anyone but ourselves.

We now take the month of January and go someplace warm, we did Alaska last year, next September is a cruise tour of the Maritimes and NE USA.

Neither of us would trade these past 18 years, they truly have been a gift.
