Retirement isn’t anything like what we had planned.
I did end up in the area that my wife and I wanted to live when we retired.
It’s just unfortunate that she couldn’t join me. A few years prior to our retiring, she died suddenly. It was quite the ordeal. But, I carried on the way that I hoped she would expect me to. Right before I retired, I got a big, female Lab. We make quite the pair. Next, I sold the house and got a small bungalow near where we had planned to have a retirement house. From there it’s been one adventure after the next. The latest adventure has been an introduction to cannabis products. Where I live now, recreational marijuana is a legal enterprise. Anyone of legal age can simply go to the local cannabis spot to find the cannabis products of their choosing. I started doing morning yoga and one of the older guys there invited me to join him on a shopping trip to the cannabis dispensary. Of course I went because I pretty much say yes to life at this point. He helped me select some sativa strains he thought would suit me. I was glad to have him guide me as I really had no clue what I was doing. Then we went back to my place, enjoyed the sativa strain and cooked a fabulous meal. It was one of the most enjoyable experiences of my entire life. That trip to the marijuana dispensary is one that I plan to make a weekly routine!
