Retirement blues, books read, musings, family, secrets, lists, etc.

I'm sure people are on the job trying to make earphones more comfy, but at this point, they've not quite succeeded. I listen to books on tape, and after awhile, the tender little cartilage in your ears begins to weary of being bent aside and starts to complain. At least mine does. Maybe the young still have more flexibility in their cartilage, but I don't seem to. Maybe the young are too distracted by the assault to their eardrums to notice.
I think there are some earphones that are more comfortable, but they cost a small fortune. My son rides a motorcycle (much to my motherly dismay) so he's got some snazzy ones to confront the noise. But he got them for a great price since he's in the electronic biz. I shudder to think how much it would be retail even at Best Buy
Retired teacher, MaEd Counseling, Married, two adult sons, one fabulous daughter-in-law, two granddaughters. Trying like crazy to make something of retirement. I love getting up at 9AM and love hanging out wherever and whenever I choose, but I'm trying to add meaning. Meaning. Isn't that what we're all after?
