One of the very nice things about retirement is the freedom to just relax and enjoy the moments. Last night we had dinner with my wife's two sisters at my sister-in-law's house. A very pleasant meal, with varied samples of some of the freshest fish available in our small corner of Northern California.
The after-dinner time, however, was the most pleasant. Just mature adults discussing the weighty national and world events of the day with sincerity, judgement, and intelligence.
