About Us

We retired in March of 2007 after 75 years with the Boeing Company. Retirement is the point where a person stops employment completely. While most people worry about “adjusting to retired life” we fell into it immediately. The next day would be a proper time!

We are so busy these days that I am often tickled by the thought of going back to work to rest (not!). Part of retirement is working on our web site which is a collection of humor and observations about retirement (aka being old). Please enjoy!

What Do Retirees Do… Sit Around All Day And Vegetate?

Yes, we are retired and hence we sit around the house all day… NOT!  We are on the go every day and just are having a ball!  We watch TV about two hours a month (usually when Casablanca is playing).  TV is a vast wasteland as far as we are concerned.  In fact, we play golf 2-3 times a week and walk the course which means we do over 100 miles/month!

We are happy we live in a safe neighborhood as we have the highway patrol next door, county sheriff across the street, a corrections office directly across the street and a Long Beach police offer next to him plus a fire chief two doors down! All good friends and we watch out for one another!

We decided to keep a little diary of our activities and point it to our website where we keep the pictures and more details!

See our Google Homepage. The world is so full of things to do and we are going to try and do them! The greatest thing is being able to spend all the time with our best friends… us! We are hopeless romantics and enjoy spending our time together.

A Word About Golf

When we retired, Sue decided we needed a healthy hobby so we seriously took up golf and our lives have never been the same! We joined Old Ranch Country Club and now play at least four days a week. Sue is an excellent player and Paul is the duffer wondering from hole to hole looking for his ball and hoping that the 19th hole comes into sight soon! Maybe not that bad! We have a load of fun and have met a great group of friends.

    Was looking at history of retailers and came across your site. I worked at Ralph’s 5 & 10 for a few years in the 70’s, the Van Nuys location. You’ve got a great site – reminds me of how things were. We had old Ben and Malcolm as the managers – wow, what memories. All the best. Nick
