I didn't do a thing today but eat, read, and take naps.

This retirement gig is pretty good.

But today's not over yet! You still have plenty more time to pack in some more eating, reading and napping

Been busy lately. On Saturday I walked down the aisle with DD #2, and later that night we danced. Sigh. Then we came home with 4 of DW's siblings and one spouse, they stayed with us 'til this morning. (DD #1 + family spent last week with us).

About an hour after the last visitor left, DS messaged to report a new addition to the family. Mother and son are doing fine.

Spent part of the day going to bicycle shops looking for adult tricycles. I used to ride a bike every day but my old bike needs so much work I need something new. At 68 I don't need to be falling off any bicycles so decided a trike was a good bet. Nobody in town has one so researched on the web and found Husky trikes. Need to do some more checking on those and on Schwinn trikes.

Went through the closing on our new condo. Now to start getting this place ready to sell.

This will be our last home before the eventual CCRC or some equivalent, so we're really pleased with the decision.

I see a fair number of older people riding those things around down here in FL. Some of them are extremely old, so I'm assuming the trikes are not only stable but fairly easy to ride. They're hauling groceries and stuff hither and yon. Sort of funny looking, some of them, but they're out and active, so good for them.

The ability to make a quick grocery run with a trike is very attractive to me.

You mentioned a tux fitting a little while ago--i am sure all eyes were upon the handsome man next to the lovely young woman in white! Congratulations to the happy couple and her parents too! And a new grandson--your children have been busy adding to the Family Michael!

Busy day today. First outing of 2015 for my Thursday golf group. Met for breakfast, long drive to the course with a couple other guys, 18 holes, 19th hole and the a long drive home... left at 7:30 am and didn't get home until 6 pm or so.

Odd thing, it was spitting snow for a few minutes when i woke up to get ready, we drove through a notch where they had 1-2 inches of snow overnight and it actually spit snow for abut a minute while we were out on the back nine. My partner called it "solid rain".

I had an inconsistent but overall good day... two birdies... numerous pars... some fugly holes... one closest to the pin... and second place overall...won $33... but still less than what I spent for green fees and registration fees.. but the market is up slightly so a profitable day.

I'm really living dangerously this week... I took the chains off the plow truck and disconnected the plow. Last night was the first rain for the season.

You did what? Around here that would result in an immediate snowfall!

Seriously though, Mt. Mansfield reported 3 inches of snow in the last 24 hours and is expecting 1-3 inches tonight. Enough already!!!

When I lived in Colorado some decades ago, it was not too unusual to get snow in early June. I would be much too nervous to live that dangerously.

Not to worry. I have plenty of beer in the fridge.

I'm still on two wheels, pretty sure a trike is in my future. Pretty sweet to stop, smell the roses, and not fall over.

Risking bad karma, I decided to drop out of my meditation class at break. It was too boring for me. Went home to drink wine and go back to binge watching Scandal.

I had not thought of that type of trike so thanks for that and the Trike Forum link.

Went for a walk yesterday afternoon and came back with a stray kitty. She is now living temporarily in my bathroom.

*Sigh* I just can't help myself
