TOM AND BARBARA CARNEY WRITE FROM B.C.
How pleasant to hear from people who are truly and graciously enjoying their retirement as as Tom and Barbara Carney are doing in the beautiful environment of British Columbia. They as "what has retirement meant for us this past year?" Their answer, much condensed, follows:
Time for driving and walking in a beautiful environmnet whenever we feel like it. Or strolling round the stalls at the County Fair or watching the Summer Parade in Sidney, etc. This is a tourist attraction area and there is plenty going on.
Time to spend with our family. Time to continue fixing up the house and garden...so that we have some colour against the background of our big evergreens. Very satisfying, even if we did spend much of the warm dry Summer of '96 watering.
Time for reading. Among other interesting books, Barb has read the complete works of Jane Austen. The mores of human nature may have changed in the nearly two centuries since they were written, but human nature has not!
Time for exercise, including the outdoor work, walking, some weight-lifting for Tom and Kripalu Yoga for Barb... (Yes, it is so easy to forget that living the retirement years is an experience meant to be enjoyed!!)
