My first golf lesson!

My first golf lesson!

I had my first golf lesson today!  I love my instructor and LPGA golf pro.  She is kind and patient and she listened to my goals.  They are to learn the game, have fun, join the local women’s club, meet other women and golf with my husband when we are on vacation....

A Tale of Two Grandmothers

A Tale of Two Grandmothers

As I look forward to my retirement, I’ve been thinking about family and my two grandmothers.  One really just gave up way too early in her late 50’s and then lived longer than she thought she would.  Her quality of life was not great. It was almost as if she was just...

No Party for You!

No Party for You!

For many years I’ve been thinking about my retirement party, the one I planned for the office.  As an extrovert, I know and love lots of people. I was so excited and anticipating the opportunity to gather friends, colleagues, and family together, mostly to thank the...

I didn't expect this!

I didn't expect this!

While listening to some of the podcasts there have been several times when either Kathe or a guest has said something that really caught my attention.  She was sharing about how couples can, over a long marriage, stop sharing activities with each other.  They have...
