  3. Easy Glider - no  agenda.
  4. Searcher - figuring out next move.

Hi Mark @MarkL413231 , since retiring in 2020 I am changing each year. Lol, it is like a Journey where one adapts to whatever they have encountered. I hope you will stop by to update us. Thanks, Nicole  👵

What type of retiree???

 

Having worked for years with the public, I try to stay as far away from the public as possible.

 

I thought some of the folks I served in the past were a danger to their fellow humans but some of the folks today make the people I dealt with look like lambs. ***]

@Anonymous  I'm definitely an adventurer.  Trying lots of new things. Learning to sketch botanicals and other wild life, paint in watercolors, taking Zumba classes, stretch classes, cooking and baking with new recipes, reading tons of interesting books, learned how to play Mexican train game, entering limerick writing contests, writing custom poems for family and friends with my hubby and writing a book that I would like to self-publish.
