This blog is meant to be a documentation of our journey into the world of retirement. I know the title should be "Older, but wiser". However, I really didn't know if that would be accurate. The "Older, but better...?" title could also be misleading. The 5 cats in the above pics are: Molly, Rose, Tux, Julie, and Ghost. (I have tried to make this collage smaller, but with no luck...)
Maine chest that we use for coffee table (cluttered)
I happen to be going through some photos online today when I came across this one taken one night a few weeks (?) ago. At the time I was sitting on the sofa watching TV, reading a book, and playing with my iphone (I multi-task...) when I snapped this pic of our cluttered coffee table (which is an old wooden chest I picked up in Maine the summer '2000). As you can see, Julie was lying among my knitting, sketch books, and graham crackers. As I looked at the photo, it hit me like a reality check... this is a simple snapshot of my life.
Isn't it funny how certain pictures, scenes, etc. can invoke feelings?
