Greetings to a fellow Coloradan
I'm turning 65 in May, and just had my Social Security interview...
and most of my mail comes from AARP ... Bummer.
Wish I shared your Scuba Diving interest, but I'm one of those guys who simply hates to get wet. Live in the mountains. biggest body of water here is a beaver dam.
Hope you have a great time in the warmer climes. Having lived through the last two winters in Colorado's high country I have warm thoughts, er, fantasies of beaches and palm trees.
Want to encourage you to join the Colorado Group.
Best wishes
Asa
