That's worth celebrating! Happy days to you both! We know so many fellow doctors who are on their second or third marriages, I get a kick out of introducing my sweetie as "my first wife." 45 years in Sept.

We met on holiday at 18 ... Married at 21 ... we're both 77 now and still going strong. "Pick the right one and they last forever." I love to brag, but to be honest, she did the choosin'. I'm still a bit baffled at what the heck she saw in me, but I was, and still am, only too willing to go along with it.

Welcome to the club I guess, Although personally I'd like to resign. Apparently 'onward and upward ' is the best choice.

I had no idea where this thread might go when I started it. It seems to have touched a chord. I'm delighted; thanks for sharing.

73 here. Retired at 65. Every day brings new challenges. A lot of things we worry about never happen and what we don't expect bites us in the caboose. Our carefully thought out life plan didn't survive contact with reality. Sometimes I'd like that "boring retirement" to start!

I try to something for just for myself for a while every day. Take a walk, ride my bike, work on a model, read a book, meditate. It's not being selfish, it's self care.

CARPE DIEM!
