• New And Fresh Restart January 15, 2019
    Welcome to the Coffeehouse, where I hope this is a hub of energetic and intelligent discussion. I have 3 blogs for more diverse discussion, but if all you are interested is how I’m doing and general info, stop here before going to the rest. God only knows why I have 3 blogs, but I do, […]
  • Back From the Holiday January 12, 2019

Life of Leisure (of sorts)

Coffee and More, waking up in the morning with a warm cup of (these days for me, decaf) is one of the benefits of retirement.  No more looking at the clock and trying to calculate how many minutes I have before bolting out of the house to catch that bus.  Or figuring out if this is the day I need to take off for my health’s sake.  On days like this one, when I suffer retirement boredom or restlessness, this is one reminder of how good (relatively speaking) I have things.
