CharlieG Great news. Beautiful place. Would’ve gone there in a heartbeat but I had nothing to offer them. Ditto Canada.
Plan is Maine on or near the coast. I’d like to build a house or have a prefab made, nothing fancy but energy efficient and green, ideally. Little dog, afternoon walks to the ocean and a couple of shots in a nearby bar on the way home. A nap before teatime, early to bed with a book.
Have a dream of buying a commercial/residential property in some small college town like Brunswick, well Brunswick, opening a book shop and living above it but I’m not sure she could handle the stairs. Profit not important, break even and chill out in a book shop enough. Hopefully get a few eccentric regulars in. Drink tea and play tunes.
It’s a good thread topic H. I hope to have a long, healthy and happy retirement. Unrealistic to think all my kids will live near one another, that’s not how life works anymore but it would be nice to live somewhere they’d actually like to visit and not New fucking Jersey.
