I was 77 last April and I’m having a blast! I’m having the time of my life since I left the workforce and, frankly, I’m surprised. As a youngster, I dreaded getting old. The old people I knew were grumpy; they weren’t having much fun. I didn’t want to wind up like that, but I thought it was inevitable. But, here I am—an old guy—and I’m having more fun than I’ve ever had in my life. Why is my experience different? I don’t know. How did it happen? I don’t really know that either. Can I tell you how to make the years after you leave the workforce the time of your life? Nope.

All I can do is to share some stories with you. I hope you will find something useful in them. That’s why I put this website up. Life is a hoot for me and I’d like to “Pay Forward” in whatever measure I can.

I’m an author, so I do have a book for sale, but I didn’t write it (or create this site) to sell books. I wrote the book for people to enjoy. I honestly don’t care whether you get it from the library, borrow it from a friend, or buy it. If you enjoy the yarn, that’s good enough for me.
