Last evening, Retirement Yenta attended a social event with some long-time members of a professional organization. It was a loosely structured event, all about ladies of a certain age, with a common background getting together and re-connecting, connecting, and whooping it up a little. Let me tell you, dear Readers, this is one of the best things your dear Yenta has done in ages. Some of these women have such inspiring stories and lives. Some are in retirement, some are considering retirement, some have found their appropriate “Retirement Level” and all are happily living their lives.
This event reminds your little Yenta of a post from long ago: #78: Borrow a Boss. The gist of this post was that Retirement Yenta was going to miss the annual office holiday party, so she was going to get a friend to join her for a night out on the town and “play boss.” Well, dear Readers this solution is even better than the idea of playing boss. This event was like all the office workers getting together without the boss looking over our shoulders and judging us! The event was so successful, Retirement Yenta is going to make it a bi-monthly affair.
