First of all, if you're using the word "stuck" to describe your immobility while the supposed love of your life finishes her career, the flame has died.

No different than other considerations spouses give to one another.

I don't think 10 years is any big deal, but with all retirement issues, they should have foreseen this and discussed it in advance.

THAT is a beautiful quilt. I just started sewing classes, and I'm working on my first quilt as a starter project.

It will NOT look like that.

Many good benefits for a slightly younger one that stays in good shape and active.
I just hope I can keep up with the challenge and her needs.

Very good benefits.
My cousin is 70 and she runs half marathons too. It isn't about age, it's about fitness.
