Another Retirement thought. I noticed something while my wife was watching Dr Phil the other day. This guy and his wife were trying to decide if they should sell their house, buy an RV and travel. Dr Phil rolled out a long 30ft strip with numbers from 0 at one end and 90 at the other. He then asked the guy to go stand on his age (seems like he was 72+-). Dr Phil's comment was that the average death age for women is 86yo and men 83yo. Now look back, then ahead of you. What do you think you should do?

We have been doing lots of things and traveling on and off ourselves with usual annual tours since retirement. We are in good health, but it really hit me & I'm surely reviewing our bucket list and undoubtedly will be re-prioritizing.
