"Local" entrance fee at Lindquist and Magens
Actually, I haven't had that problem about greeting or chatting people up even if I've never met them. Everyone has been really nice.
Harder developing friendships.
"Surprised you decided to retire.
Good luck, let us know how it goes!"
I remember meeting you. I'll PM you.
As to the retirement, although I had 38 years in, I was fully planning on working another 3-4. Unfortunately, health issues reared their ugly head, and mold issues in my office gave me the lung capacity of an over 90 year old. Since I like breathing, and I'm only 61 I decided to retire. C'est la vie. I'm actually very glad to be "free". Just spent 2 months traveling through Utah, Nevada, California. Amazing. Thinking if I do leave STT I may be an RV nomad for a year or two. Still looking for a 1 BR apartment here though.
Making the decision is often the most difficult part, Idlewood!
You can always go be an RV nomad and come back!
Of course, you did ship your stuff down so you can give it another year or so and then make a change.
Drive around north side. Many landlords just put rental signs up along the road.
