So, Barbara........

what will you and I do in our retirements that is as challenging as this?

From the AP

"HAYS, Kan. - Sitting on the front row in her college classes carefully taking notes, Nola Ochs is just as likely to answer questions as to ask them. That's not the only thing distinguishing her from fellow students at Fort Hays State University. She's 95, and when she graduates May 12, she'll be what is believed to be the world's oldest person to be awarded a college degree."

Well, I don't think I can top this. But as I told you at lunch today, I look forward to taking classes without the goal of a grade or a degree, but rather just for the sake of learning. That will be such a pleasure! We'll have to compare notes on exactly how we do end up spending our time.
