be done to our house to allow an easier living as we age. We have budgeted enough to
widen many doors and put a ramp in place should we need to do so. >>

Personally, I consider the emphasis many people place on experiencing various kinds of sensation to be a waste of time and money.

Many people start out retirement with the idea that it should be a cornucopia on sensations --- going so far as to draw up a "bucket list" of sensations they want to have.

In the end, I think simplicity in life is what people usually decide is worthwhile. Less emphasis on sensation and more on the quiet enjoyment of life.

By coincidence, that's usually the cheap option too.

Exotic sensation is overrated in my view and experience.
