Re: Retirees return to campus living

I would not mind living in a college town, but I would never want to live on a campus. I suspect much of this is driven by oldsters who can not give up the nostaligia for their "good old days":

" .....If you took all the girls I knew
When I was single
And brought them all together for one night
I know theyd never match
My sweet imagination
And everything looks worse in black and white...." (Paul Simon)

Life is too valuable for reruns and old chapters relived like civil war re-enactments. I would rather move to an Italian Village on the Amalfi Coast and learn to make olive oil with a stone press than go to my old college campus and recall how little I knew when I graduated. 8)
