Aunt Mary,
When Ava, Henry and I visit for Thanksgiving, we would like to have you take some pictures for us. This can be some training for retirement. Any thoughts?

Love, Jeff


I don't take pictures of people- not my talent. But I have a good friend who takes WONDERFUL people pictures. Do you want her number?


How wise to plan years in adcance. But how troubling that retirees have to still be working when retired. I am thinking my entire generation will end up needing to work up until we die..... hopefully, its a long time off.

I am looking forward to your blogging the process. You are the most thorough person I know and I am sure I will learn a new way of looking at things.

Planning your retirement early on is good. That way, you’ll have more time decide what you want to do in the future. I like the idea of doing things that you normally can’t do because of your busy working schedule. Improving your photography skills can really help you. If you get good enough, maybe it can even be a source of income for you! And what’s great about that is it wouldn’t feel like work at all!

Hey Mary,
I just happened to stumble across your blog this evening and was captivated by the warm small town vibe I can feel in your posts (Especially the ones about local happenings obviously)

I think its really cool that you plan on picking up some possibly income producing hobbies in your retirement. As my parents near retirement, I am urging them to do the same.

On my blog I just wrote a post about the self education movement (http://alexanderberger.me/post/30348350726/self-education-alexander-berger) and although the details may be different, I think the principle is the same: If you are passionate about something, you can educate yourself about it, and possibly earn a living from it.

Have a great labor day weekend!
