Ah, retirement, the status I sought for so long. My wife and I retired in the mid--what do you call the last decade? The aughts? At 69, I am plenty able to be gainfully employed, but that would mean competition with someone younger who may have young ones to put through college. So we both eschew enriching employment and enrich our lives instead with lots of RV travel, reading, writing, blogging, TV watching, and the like.
Seriously, we feel very fortunate to have both health and time to explore our beautiful country. Last year we visited Antelope Island on Utah's Great Salt Lake. The photo below doesn't do justice to the herd of buffalo grazing at the shoreline.
The second photo was taken near Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
