Another week, another Friday. Times flies, especially if you live as busy a life as I do. If you’re lucky enough to be ‘retired’ from your old 9 to 5 job and doing what you want (in my case, writing), then you could be working as hard now as you ever have!
But so what? We ‘baby boomers’ love what we’re doing. I never forget that I’m extremely fortunate to live in this day and age. In last Friday’s post, I spoke about baby boomers having time and quite often the income to indulge and I’ll repeat; Boomers, born between 1946 and 1964, are reaching retirement at a rate of 3.5 million a year! With sufficient disposable income they love to read books as entertainment and they’re avid readers. Boomers are often people who have faced life’s latest challenges with courage and humour and they can be as rebellious, sexy, romantic, adventurous, wise – and fun as anyone!

“Well, what do you say? Don’t you agree it’s a great idea?” Toby bent forward in enthusiasm as he placed his empty glass on to the cockpit table.
Richard caught Connie’s amused look and wondered what she thought of Toby’s bombshell. She didn’t look too concerned or surprised. If he hadn’t known better, he could have almost believed she had known all along. Richard cursed that he had answered the call at all. He should have known as soon as he recognised Toby’s clipped and cultured accent on the line that something was up.
“But Toby, we planned on this being a trip for just the two of us. Now that I’ve retired. Surely you can understand that we want to have some free time and……”
…….Richard absent-mindedly ran a hand through his hair. “Well, Connie, if you’re quite sure?” A renewed feeling of disappointment passed through him as he realised they would never have this unique opportunity again. It was almost as if a part of his lifelong dream was crumbling into dust around him…..
