WHEN LIFE DESERVES SOME FUN

Mar 29th, 2013 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

Several temptations are lately looming up offering beguiling opportunities for seniors, and particularly for me. Back in my early teens I owned a 1948 Willys Jeepster. It was yellow, a convertible, stick shift, with all the bells and whistles that made it an enviable and enjoyable toy.

There are typically no appointments on Saturdays. Physicians take off, other of life’s essentials, like hair appointments, etc can be delayed to a weekday. There is just no need to put one in the vise of trying to squeeze in mandatory activities. Saturday is a void, all its own, in which you can choose to be in total limbo. I have always loved Saturdays. There is a tranquility about them that is hardly experienced on any other day.

For the true retiree, nothing needs to be more important than doing exactly what one wants, in the way one wants on a Saturday. Freedom is free.
