My wife Anne and I celebrated our 65th wedding anniversary on July 2nd. In 2011 we moved to Fox Hill Village, a retirement community in Westwood, MA. Living is easy and agreeable in all respects. We have three daughters (two Smith and one Amherst)– two of whom are close by and the other in Pelham NY; there are five grandchildren. All are well, active and productively engaged. Anne gardens and plays bridge. After nine hip operations, I wobble around exercising and write short stories. An Amherst classmate and I coined the acronym SEEES: Sleep, Eat, Exercise, Engage (socially), Stretch. It’s an excellent guide for elder fitness.
