One of my favourite things about retirement is spontaneity. When hubs and I were both working, it took a lot of planning to just go for a drive.

Now, we’re able to say, “let’s go”, and we’re out the door in a half hour or less.

On our last spur of the moment “trip”, we drove out to hubs’ home town.

Standing (well, almost still standing) at the edge of town, is what’s left of an old brick plant. The far end of the photo was living quarters and the closest was what hubs referred to as “the workshop”.

Spontaneous drives in the country, trips down memory lane, and a sunny afternoon well-spent are all things that Covid-19 has not taken away from us.
