I don't know, but I feel I may have met a man who is, in many ways, the man I may let into my world. He's kind, creative, highly intelligent, compassionate, speaks full sentences and actually uses words that contain more than 2 syllables! His looks don't send me but they make me smile. I'm not head over heels but more intellectual about him. He retired last year from his position as a meteorologist form a major airline so he has this pass that allows him and a partner to travel for free all over the world. Travel is one of the things on my to do list as I've never had the opportunity! In other words, this man is all I could want, hope for. Ok, now the the sense of humor of the universe. He's in the beginning stages of a divorce. He's 54, his wife is 69. They have a property here (plus 2 others) that is his heart. It's magnificient and is a source of income as it's location and history are unique. He wants to be able to keep it, if nothing else, including the travel pass. She wants to keep that so that she can maintain her lifestyle. A lifestyle, mind you, that most of us would have killed for! LOL. Because of her age and the length of time they've been married, she is likely to come out the winner here (at least monetarily). She's an alcoholic who is very abusive, not only to him but to their son (who's willing to testify as to her behavior). I tell him that we always get what we need and sometimes what we need is also what we want. That he's going to lose what he's worked so hard for (she didn't work) for 31 years, but he will not come out a pauper (as I did!). No matter the outcome, he will still be a wealthy man. In more ways that just property and money. He knows my ex was also an alcoholic. We have so much in common it's a very peaceful meeting of the minds. What is in the future for him is completely unknown, as it is for us all. So, I'm taking this one day at a time. One step at a time. No rush, no forward thoughts. Whatever happens, happens. I'm just going to enjoy the ride! Wish me peace in this. Luck is not the thing here.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
