Is the house you're staying at a Bed and Breakfast?

Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. The most beautiful places I have ever been in my life.

I like how the roads there follow the path of the rivers. Drive with the top down playing full blast Copeland's Fanfare for the Common Man.

If that's not Heaven, I don't know what is.

@Mike: It's not a B&B--we've swapped houses for this lovely home this week (on a home-exchange website). Tonight we sat in the garden sipping wine and saw fireflies. We don't have fireflies in CA. Very cool.

(And yes, we drove along the river tonight to get to town. No convertible, though. That and Copeland would have been perfect!)

Hehe, I suppose the reason I can't relate at all is that I don't get baseball ;-)

@ERE: Although I do suspect you relate to "it doesn't take a lot of money to enjoy oneself," irrespective of your distaste for baseball.

I'm sure I'm just missing a lot of the details. From my 50000' perspective, nothing is happening. Like soccer ;-) ... or live football games with no fast forward :-D


When I first moved to North America it was to NYC, and I learned the rules of baseball going to games at Yankee Stadium. Fantastic atmosphere, passion, people - if I'd relocated to Baltimore or Texas or somewhere (or here to Toronto) at first I'm sure I wouldn't have grown to like the game nearly as much as I do.

I know that wasn't the point of the post but just wanted to agree with that much :)

We can think about the relationship of baseball and retirement in a different way. I've been retired for eight years, am 64, and still playing baseball--that's right, not softball, baseball. For me, the relationship between baseball and retirement is the importance of identifying our passions and pursuing them in retirement. This is but one of the key elements of a fulfilling retirement that my co-author (Keith Lawrence) and I identify in our newly-published book, Your Retirement Quest: 10 Secrets for Creating and Living a Fulfilling Retirement (www.YourRetirementQuest.com).
