I do alot of Zumba and have been asked to teach it at my Eagles Club. I still work full time I 'm an officer in the club and spend 70 to 90 minutes exercising each day. I would love to have the time to teach when I retire.
I want to be able to spend alot of time with my grandchildren and of course do a little travel.
I also am going to begin quilting with an old friend of mine.
Where do I find time to read??

Gardening, digging holes for tomatoes 2 feet deep is good exercise.

I'd have to go with Photography.  When I was younger and in college, I did a lot of experimentation with Photography and darkroom exposures.  Today, things are so different. I have a lot to learn and relearn!

To be honest there isn't much I haven't tried already.  But in my retirement I would like to learn to cook for many.  I'm already a decent cook, at the family level.  But things change when you begin to cook for hundreds, or maybe even thousands. 

 

In my day to day activities I frequently run across men and women who are homeless and often hungry.  At the very least they would all enjoy a fresh cooked, hot meal.  My plan is to start just once a week, providing one meal.  With grace, I hope to find supporters for fresh food supplies. 

 

Given time and effort, I could turn this passion into a full time hobby.

I like to quilt and would love to spend time sewing some really creative original quilts. I have made quilts for all my children and grandchildren using others patterns. I would love to stretch my creativity by creating my own quilt patterns.

I would rejoin a choral group, help my son make videos, start a blog site and seriously settle down and learn German, so I can go back and visit (I lived there for a year in the mid-'80's.
