We share these outings with only a handful of friends who are predictable, reliable and honest. It truly is one of the great things about surviving into old age...no pretenses. We all know what we are getting in our friendships and associations. I plan to visit dozens of lakes, ride a hundred different roads and trails in 2014. We will take advantage of secluded beaches and collect more of the sun's rays this year than last....therefore increasing our vitamin D intake by at least two-fold over 2013.
Call me a dreamer, call me a freak...I'm going "out" with the determination of a young idealist. We are not sure if we have ten years left or twenty, but never let it be said that we wasted our energy on materialism or TV. We played like Cheetahs and Pandas and Gibbons and we resisted life in a cage...not worrying too much about what others thought of our antics, we were ripe in old age.
