GRANA here; I too "DID IT ALL" l: made my own frozen yogurt ( starting with milkk bought atthestore[ not taken from a cow: />)] I msde demy own pizzas, from scratch; pickles, preserved fruits, I cu up whole chickens for the freezer ($.39# vs $1.29#.I enjoyed the challenge oflearning new skills & the sense of accoplishment I felt t w/ each SUCCESS! All The volunteer jobs( scout leader& committee person, classroom Mom; church school teacher were done becasuse I could do it & was needed; If I had it to do over again, I would take better care of myself along theway.And I would have taken a different road home the night I was rear- ended by an uninsured drunk driver on the way home from a sales mtg. Perhaps, I then would be able, in my golden retirement years to walk daily w/my usband instead of being confined to a wheelchair or mybeIwouldhavebeen kiled in someotherwayorhurt someone else( driving on an unfamiliar road We each make ( at the time) what seems to us to the best choice(s); based on what we then know; ..... NO REGRETS LATER IN LIFE THAT WAY!. " woulda coulda shoulda" thinking is a waste of time & accomplishes nothing worthwhile!

Have been retired for nearly 15 years; but I have yet to see the "Golden Retirement Years". I don't think there is such a thing! It seems that retirement years consists of medical appointments and short visits to the grocery store.
