Bio: This is a blog ostensibly about my taking early retirement after a 30+ year career as a law librarian. Since starting the blog in November of 2014, I have expanded the original scope from financial issues (i.e. pension, social security, 401(k), divorce, alimony) to discussions of politics, current events, music, and mostly life's comical ironies. I always try to return the focus to those serious issues that are germain to seniors, but my strong need for displays of irreverence and imbecility are often more dominant. So do join me as I encounter the highs, lows, pitfalls, and other challenges that will present themselves as we settle early into what I'm still told are the GOLDEN YEARS. Your comments are not only welcomed but encouraged. Thanks for stopping by!
