You always seem to rebound with a positive attitude no matter what, an admirable trait!

I miss it too. There are several non-profits that benefit from my retirement. I hold down a mean table at benefits and events and I keep a cushion in my car for those that don't have padded chairs. When you're feeling better maybe you can too. We did not go through all this chemo and radiation let alone our surgeries to sit around and watch tv. You also have those kids to keep an eye on.

A lot of great vacations were done on very little money. Sometimes they are they best.

Enjoy
