We are preparing for company and you know what that means – taking care of a lot of deferred household maintenance items. That’s a good reason to have company. It makes you do things that have been put off for too long.
As usual, I did a lot of reading this week in the baby boomer and retirement worlds. I thought I would share a little of that with readers.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
