I'm Annette & am looking forward to getting started with all of AARP's benefits..  While pushing 60 I live in the Gulfcoast area. I am ready to start saving, learning new things, most of all meeting new people.  I am a good listener as well as a talker;  I like helping & caring for others.  Look forward to knowing AARP & its members.

Hi, my name is Kathy. I am newly retired and living on the outskirts of New York City. I've been living in New York City my whole life.

 

A few details about myself: I was married and now I am newly single.  I have two children and three grandchildren. Love my kids.  I enjoy drawing (& being creative), love my birds and a bit of a classic movies buff.  And I love meeting people.

 

Hoping to hear from others on this site.

Single, African American woman, state of Ohio retiree - 5 years now. Have decided to go back to work simply because I have too much time on my hands. Guess what? Can't even get an interview for the job I want.

 

I enjoy crocheting. Love vacationing to Caribbean beaches. I'm outgoing and appreciative of the beauty in nature.

 

After spending a couple of 75 degree days in February in Columbia, SC, I'm selling my Ohio home and split my time between living with my daughters who live in the south!

Peace & Blessings

I am also a new member according to what you said Down South i would guess Virginia, South Carolina or somewhere out there. It is hard choice to make but you would know what is best for your family.

Help with what, exactly? As a Michigander, can't help much with the weather. I've found that the only way around it is to "join it." Bought some snowshoes for myself and hubbie to try this and, guess what, hasn't really snowed since! Yeah, me! Seriously, welcome to the site. I'm looking forward to seeing what it is all about too.

Yeah, that's pretty much the way of customer service these days. Insulting, I find.

 

@AARPTeriis a moderator. What I just did (type @ plus her screen name) sent notification to her. You'll want to do something like that to your original post so she knows what the issue is. If she cannot help, she will get you the help you need. Best wishes.
