This week Pravin asks us "What would you do in the long term?"
That's an interesting question for someone in the "circling the drain" age bracket. For clarification I'd say anyone above say 65 is in that category. Hopefully your tub was very full and your circling becomes an interesting, long journey.
So what would I do? Well- it depends upon the circumstances. I certainly will not be taking out any 30 year mortgages or purchasing a new car, although if I should win 10-15,000 dollars in the lottery there could well be a motorcycle in my future. An 1100 CC Suzuki. And then a long road trip.
Yeah - I know. That is simply wishful thinking. In reality to avoid the drain I need to take better care of myself. DO stuff like watch my diet, take my meds - line big pharma's pockets with the outrageous prices they charge. Without those meds my drain looms large, deep and very close. I tell ya - at times this getting old stuff really sucks but the journey to this point has been interesting and somewhat enjoyable.
I certainly will be watching how the country fares under the new president. He has chosen a few good cabinet members and some real turkeys. It is the last stand of the baby boomers - we are aging rapidly. It is time for the next generation to assert itself in the political arena and that will also be fun to watch.
Upon reflection it appears in the long term I will be doing a lot of observing. That seems reasonable for a retiree - I will also be increasing my blogging output while also keeping up with the weekly LBC posts.
Be sure to see what my cohorts have to say
