I am in Portland Maine waiting for my flight in the early AM, an Maine is a beautiful but expensive state.  Did Bar Harbor which has Arcadia N P right next door, a what a treasure it is.  Met up with a shipmate that I hadn't seen since 1974 while here too.  So a couple more bucket list items checked off an a very nice vacation for my oldest stepdaughter an her husband. 
I fly back to indianapolis tomorrow where I have another stent change on wed. an I leave on Aug 25 for my train trip with my oldest grandson.  After that I will plan a cruise with my daughter (my biological child)  an her husband an after that maybe another short train trip with my apprentice from my working days.  All of this depends on my ability to get around but the good Lord has blessed me so far.  Knowing that your life is near its end is liberating, as far as retirement savings are concerned, so it is easy to say OH YA lets do this!
