IT’S FUNNY how your circumstances change your perspective on things. In reality, I guess it’s not surprising. You look at things differently depending on the environment around you.

Another hundred a year? Drop in the bucket. Let’s get those things done. Let’s make some things happen in our community. Surely it’s not that big a deal. But then you get older, retirement starts to approach, and you start to figure out how retirement will look. And boy, does your perspective change in a hurry.
