Things are changing …

Listen to the Music / Playing for Change


Spring.

A time of renewal.
Of change.

Besides the world being turned upside down,
My personal life is changing as well.

I’d been wondering for a while if my time at Home Depot was winding down.
Was it over?
I didn’t know for sure.
What was the right thing to do? Right now?
It’s been 8 years and I can surely stay longer.

But THEN, my wife Rose came to me and said
“I want you to retire.”
That was a pretty direct answer to my question
I had never presented to her.

Other things happened:
My computer blew up.
I re-installed Win 10 and all my other stuff.
Then my monitor failed.
I went out and bought a new one.

my new benq monitor
my new BENQ monitor

It’s beautiful.

Then …
I had been dreaming for a quite a while that I’d like to have a KIA Soul.
I just like that vehicle.
It suits me.
But I never really thought I would ever have one.
Then Rose noticed a great deal on a second-hand Soul.
We went and looked
It was immaculate.
Gorgeous.
Fully loaded – sun roof and everything.
We bought it.
Rose and I aren’t rich. Money wise.
But I’m 72 now.
And I don’t plan and taking anything with me.
I just want to enjoy the last part of this lifetime.

See you there.

  1. I hope your retirement works out as well as mine has. You said you don’t have a lot of money, but you both are rich because you have each other.

  2. Congratulations. You made the RIGHT CHOICE. Retirement is great. Pity about the lack of paycheck, but hey, not working is the BEST. Congratulations on EVERYTHING.

    1. Thank You Marilyn. I still have to remain active. Too bad everything is closed, broken, or gone. I just want to go swimming once a week and to movie once a month. Soon. We hope.
