Well, we did it. Yesterday DH and I joined the local Senior Citizen Center. The reason we thought it was time is because the temps been in the triple digits all week and it's way too hot to walk the neighborhood. Yes, we could go to the mall - and do at least once a week - but needed another diversion.
This way we have access to their gym and other amenities (like lunch for under $5). Of course they have activities too - like cards and games, a pool table, table tennis, dances, etc. - but to be honest, we're not really into those things. They do have knitting and crochet times - but they're like at 9am... and I'm barely functional until 10 (didn't used to be that way, but at approaching 78 in a few weeks, that's how it is now). Anyway, we signed up, so we'll see how that goes.
And you don't really have to be 'old'... as anyone 50 and over can join. It's taken us 28 years to bite the bullet. Actually, we thought about doing it in 2019. We stopped by and checked it out then... but the pandemic hit a few months later and everything closed down.
The place is really nice, huge and very modern looking. It's built like a large square with an open patio and garden in the middle. There's also a lounge and a library - as well as a Wellness Center. I think it was a good idea to join, but I guess only time will tell.
And 2 more pics that I found on Pinterest that I liked:

(Sad note: lost one of the kittens Sunday night to either a coyote or bobcat. Neighbor said she saw bobcat in the area...)
