Grateful – vs – Thankful – Retirement Travel Article

Grateful – vs – Thankful Grateful -vs- Thankful (2019) I wrote this little ditty nearly five years ago. It turns out that over the years this little grateful – vs – thankful tale attracts a great deal of traffic to our site, about this time, every year.  Which tells me I’m not alone in my thought process of trying to distinguish between the two.

Lessons learned – simply retired – Retirement Travel Article

Lessons learned – simply retired November 2 – For two retired women, visiting five National Parks (plus Monument Valley) in 10 days was probably a bit ambitious. Now that the trip is over, we have some insights: Our favorite parks were Bryce Canyon, Zion and Arches – close but roughly in that order.
