"The old begin to complain of the conduct of the young when they themselves are no longer able to set a bad example." Francois de la Rochefoucauld
I think Francois is right! But then, some people have always been old all their lives!
I had no idea retirement could be so much fun! It is hard to believe I have been "unemployed" for eight years, now...and never busier!! But MY choice of what to do! I highly recommend it!
Monday my "studio Q" group met...we had a fun lunch...Stone Salad! Our hostess came up with the idea from an old Russian folktale "Stone Soup" about a peasant lady who made a delicious soup from water and a stone..improved upon by all the neighbors contributions of veggies, meat, etc. We all brought anything to make a salad with greens (lettuce/spinach) as the base. Without discussing it, we had a very good assortment of things to add...tomatoes, croutons, hard boiled eggs, cheese, nuts, etc. After we had our "show and tell", we discussed our new goals/challenges for the coming few months.
