‘Tis The Season Once More

with one comment

The major item this year was a move from one old farts’ facility to another. They’re not all that far apart but I feel like I’m in a different universe. Bev and I sold our Pacific Beach house six years ago and moved into Aridzona’s Sunrise of Gilbert – a combined independent and assisted living complex in metro Phoenix. And I moved six months ago to Verena of Gilbert, a senior-living apartment building just about six miles south.

It was a good move. Sunrise management just suddenly disintegrated. This place is twice as big so that means more people and more activities that keep me busy since I’ve officially become the unofficial photographer – or unofficially the official photographer. The calendar also has me leading a weekly writing class/group and Flashback sessions. And we’re going to launch bocce once a week in the New Year,

It’s been a good year and my health has held up well for the length of time it’s been abused. Staying active and my regular bike rides help.

I still provide copy for a half dozen monthly publications through my Mature Life Features syndicate and write a daily blog that I’m going to have to promote because it’s the only thing that will survive after the papers fade away. It’s where you’re reading this –

Keep in touch and check this blog periodically. You can contribute if you wish by sending the material to

So have fun and make the most of the New Year.
