I’ve been busy, very busy. I had been writing and sharing a story each and every Sunday for more than three years. For the past many months though, my focus has been against a couple other more pressing priorities; namely, getting our California house sold. Then of course, there’s the nearly overwhelming job of getting my wife to downsize so that she could squeeze into our AZ home. Always being a meticulous planner, I had been planning this transition for a couple of years. California is a beautiful place, but unless you’re born wealthy, wanting to work all your life or wanting to join the millions there living off of the social welfare systems, it’s not a very good place for retirees. Like many retirees, I took on my very first part time, (seasonal in my case), job. I just finished up my very first season as a tax preparer.
