Latest news...retirement

Wow, it's been a while since I have posted!  Lots has been happening. Dan is now retired from Ford Motor Company! His first day of retirement was May 1st.   We are both very happy! We are having his retirement party next month, much planning going on.

We took a couple days and went upnorth, checking out some properties for sale. We would like to get a small cabin on a lake for a get away. Also if we own our own place upnorth, we can take the dogs with us. We always feel bad leaving Patch and Bentely behind when we go away.

Here is a pic of one of the places we checked out.

Dan was walking down to check out the lake.  Beautiful view, but very steep and too far from the house to the lake.

One of Dan's niece's, Rachael, and her family live in the area we were in, so we met up with them for lunch. Had a great time!

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!
