Retirement was fun for a while, but it's definitely not something I want to do for the rest of my life. And so Burbank — I'm back!
During my brief sabbatical, I did learn to smell the roses — and pick some out of my mother's garden. She has 200 bushes, so it was easy! But I also did some exploring around town.
I found out Joslyn Adult Center has a beautiful computer lab where those 55 and older can take classes for a nominal fee and have free access to computers on Mondays and Fridays. And an instructor will help with Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint or your cell phone and other high-tech gadgets by appointment. What will they think of next?
I also had more time for shopping and attending social events — without a pad and pen. My best friend and I have been spending time in Magnolia Park at the thrift shops. You can't beat skirt suits for $3 and DKNY jeans for $2.50.
