Just a thought tinged with a bit of humor. lol

Boy oh boy, DougIvy you have sure said a mouthful there!  I agree wholeheartedly!  And I'm sure YOU "are" that bright spot in the lives of  those blessed by your light!

Many things come to mind and then leave as quickly as they came.  But the one consistent thing I yet have a desire to do is travel.  And my travel destinations are all within the borders of the USA.  So many places I've never been or seen and so many places I would like to see again.  So that would be my main thing I would still like to accomplish....see the beauty of our country.

What do you do to be that "bright spot"?  Besides volunteering.  Any suggestions?  I know a smile brings on a smile.  Compliment a stranger.  Would love to see a list here.

@Prosecco6247  Thanks, I'll have to check out some of that soon.  Right now, my bucket is a bit empty. Trying to figure out what I still want to do. Now that I got my cataracts removed, I'm thinking pretty positive for the most part.

@JoyaDe  I don't have any suggestions for you right now re:  where you should go.  I am busy going through all of my Road Scholar and cruise line catalogues trying to get ideas for myself.  I wanted to ask you, though, have you tried any of the "travel forums" on AARP?  

 

There are some active travelers on those discussions and I'll bet they would be full of ideas for you!  Check on the right side of the Community page where the various discussions are listed.  Click on "Travels" and the drop-down menu lists a.)  destinations b.)  solo travel  c.)  tips and d.) reveal your travel secrets.

 

Happy trails!

Let us know if you get some great ideas...the rest of us might want to check it out!
