How did you spend election night on Nov. 3, 1964 when U.S. Sen. Barry Goldwater got trounced by Lyndon Johnson
Our downsizing journey for a condo takes us to Holt, Michigan

We are saying goodbye to Lansing after living here for more than three-and-a-half decades of marriage

At the closing.
Our Realtor grabbed this picture yesterday after we closed on our condo.


How many of you baby-boomers  came to a point where you realized that it was time to downsize your home.  The kids are gone and you have more than enough space for the two of you.  And you realize that you want to spend more time visiting kids and grandkids.

We came to that point about two years ago and started planning to leave Lansing where I've lived for most of my adult life and where we've lived for more than 35-years of marriage.  We raised two kids here and have plenty of great memories. 

But the time has come to move on and to view the world from a different geographical perspective.

We are moving into a condo from a house that has four bedrooms and a full and finished basement.

We are happy, but still a little sad.  How did we get to this point and how did we make it happen?

For myself and for others who have done it before us and who are struggling with the decision, I will be writing more about that.
