You must sleep very deeply my friend!

I remember my mother wishing my Dad would do more of this when he/they retired. Instead he wanted to do all the traveling he couldn't owning a business and when they weren't traveling he was finding projects...some of which drove her nuts!

James would definitely learn what silent treatment meant if he did that to me!

lol, that would make them silent pictures.

my dad retired 20 years ago. he finally got around to reading all the books, listening to all the music, and watching all the movies that he'd missed out on during his lifetime of working to support our family. all after sleeping late every day.

it's funny; he loves to crank up his stereo and the tv until the room shakes and the neighbors complain. but, as some things in life just sort of fit together - like my parents who've been married 61 years, mom is mostly deaf and doesn't notice.
i guess that's somewhere between serendipity and providence.

I told my husband that when I retire ( 9 more work wakeups !!) I'm going to lounge on the couch all day and eat bonbons.

Are you going to watch soap operas and talk shows too?
