Gone Fishin’

By Dave Riley

There are few places in the world as beautiful as Maine.  Few, but not none. Every year, usually in August, we visit one of those other magnificent places: the Pacific Northwest.

Since Mrs. R. is from Seattle and I am from Bangor, mutually acknowledging that both places are gorgeous keeps peace in the family.

However, if the Northwest were ugly, we’d still go because our daughter and her family live there.

A new post from Growing Old Isn’t for Sissies will appear on Wednesday, September 2. Meanwhile, Mrs. R. and I are kicking back for a week.

Growing Old Isn’t For Sissies is about aging. It’s stories of how some older people achieve remarkable successes, how some people make the lives of others better, and how all seniors have hurdles to face — maladies, loss of loved ones and more.
