I realize that I'm close the end of my working career, having been self employed for over 30 years, my wife and I decided to slow down a bit.

So for the last couple of years every WEDNESDAY we take a casual day. Close to us is a park with a great place to overlook the Mississippi river where the Wisconsin river joins it.

A little picnic lunch and great day to be outside, what a great view from the park.

Great thing for you and the wife to do together. Times like that are hard to come by. Thanks for sharing. Roger.

Good for you. " Take time to smell the roses" is too often said and not often enough done. Beautiful spot you found--- it made me feel good just looking at the pics, thanks.

The river is at about a normal stage for this time of year. We had a wet spring with a lot of flooding and then it dried up with hardly any rain for over a month now.

Nice! I start Social Security next month but have been laid off for over two years. I am enjoying the time to do the things that we want to do. I hope that you do too. Be sure to take care of your health. Good Luck, Rick

I think you both have made a good choice by taking time off like that. That's something I need to learn. We only get so many years.
