About meI am a retired newspaperperson, who, after 40 years in the business, on Fleet Street, and in Western Canada, decided to hang 'em up, age 56, with a nice buyout on the table. I have been married to a beautiful, much younger wife for almost 25 years and have a son age 17. And they said it wouldn't work!
We moved from the big city to a rural part of Vancouver Island, where I hoped to indulge in the finer things in life, good single malt scotch and par golf. One out of two wasn't bad, but a botched-up hip replacement meant bye to the fairways and bring on the scotch.
Problem was, I was reading all those wonderful books I had always promised myself I would get around to, but come morning hangovers, and I couldn't remember what I had read the night before. So, bye to the scotch. One of the smartest moves I ever made ('cept marrying my wife) because I have so enjoyed the last few years and all the great books I have finally caught up with.
I'm into every genre, you name it - been there, read that! Second smartest thing I ever did was to join LT a week or so ago. Lucked onto the site and have had so much fun already, made a few friends, boggled at people's library lists, and found so much in common with other book people.
I'm also fortunate in having a 17-year-old, who can quickly right things on the computer when I frequently screw up. Remember, when I started out in newspapers we were using pigs blood and cave walls!
