Make Your Retirement Travel Plans

By
Education & Training with House Proud Ottawa-Ontario-Canada

Uncertainty is one of the challenges of retirement.  I just cannot decide what to do for my holidays this year.  There are so many options.  

I have been in many places, but I've never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.

I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.

I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not too much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often.

I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.

Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting older.

One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!

I may have been in Continent, and I don't remember what country I was in. It's an age thing.

                         Until I know what I want, I am going to stay in Decisive.

Sally:  Well, I have been to Bigger Saskatchewan and, as the sign at the edge of town says....  "New York is big but this is Bigger."

Patiricia.  I love this joke.

Steven:  It has been fun.

Oh my Zinger friend, you never disappoint!  Now, how about visiting in-comprehensive?  I've heard it is fun, but not all inclusive!  ;-).

That's where being in Cognito works for you! Few of us look like our highschool photos any more. We all have a pound or two to spare, different face , different hair (or less of it) etc. In Cognito is well populated indeed.

Aren't you just the funny one lately! Must be the retirement thing. I thought maybe this was a plug for Book Club with the In Continent thing. LOL

Robert:  Just today my husband reminded me that I have been living in Cognito - that my natural hair colour is a little darker than blonde (the bastard) and he knew for sure because he has photos.  

Shar:  I was going to give it a plug but should post something tomorrow to remind everyone that October 27th is the day.
