Let’s face it — it is just depressing to see what is happening with the stock market every day. Rather than obsess about it, it is better to just accept it and deal with it. I’ve decided that writing a haiku would be therapeutic:
Retirement far away
Pay no attention
We are less than a month away from a much-anticipated visit with our old (in the sense of long-time, of course) friends Chuck and Laura Pisciotta at their excellent vacation getaway home on the outskirts of Freeport, on Grand Bahama Island. While there we will sleep in, drink Kalik beer, have great conversations on their deck, and luxuriate in the sun — weather permitting. Russell, we will try to say hello to Mr. Sun on your behalf!
I have attached a link to some video of Deadman’s Cove, where we snorkeled during our last visit. We saw all kinds of fish and other aquatic life, including watching a flock of rays glide majestically past as we floated in the warm, tropical water. I can almost taste the fried lobster now . . . .
