Seems English grammar and usage is of little consequence to the little whelps that followed us. Nice response. Good luck in a long healthy retirement; I’m enjoying the heck out of mine.
I can assure you, and you already know, the sniveling little brat doesn’t give a hoot about the success you and your wife have had in your retirement. The best way to get even with the little bastards is to stay as healthy in body and mind as possible so we can stay around as long as possible and find ways to make their lives a little harder.
Thanks for your supportive comments. I apologize for responding so late after you made them.
We are enjoying our retirement in the country, on the farm. My wife is as happy as I’ve seen her in years. She loves the rural lifestyle, growing her garden, tending to the livestock, not having to fight traffic in the city. Takes her back to her youth she says. I am happy too because she is happy. We don’t make much income in our retirement except for the enjoyment of our labors, which at this stage in our lives is most important.
I don’t consider ourselves “losers”. Quite the contrary. Life is good.
