Busy, Busy, Busy

Busy, not like a beaver particularly, though I do waddle a bit like one.
How did I ever find time to work?  Did I have my students working for me?  I barely get things done now that I'm retired, I must have been much better organized.

In between I did my aerobic exercise, I'm really getting too old for all of this.

    I didn't know Mac sold his things on ebay - that's great.

  2. Peach jam? oh that sounds divine!

  3. Does one ever retire.....? Its just a different routine!
    Peach Jam sounds wonderful.
