Take us out to the ball game

In St. Louis last week, we went to the first Cardinals game in years. They have a new stadium since the last time we were there

New ballpark

We had a great time in the all-inclusive Champions Club

More posts later, including old St. Charles and a winery in Rocheport, MO

From January, 2006 on early retirement

Here is something from the other blog that I wrote a long time ago.  Still stands, and sounds more true over six years later:

I like my job. I enjoy working for a college and I am good at what I do.  I have pleasant colleagues and I do fulfilling work, so, why would I want to retire early?  Well, I am tired of watching people die before any semblance of a normal lifespan has been achieved.  A mother-in-law, a brother-in-law, an aunt, a niece, a son and more recently a colleague who was in the process of retiring at the age of 56.

It is one thing to die when old enough for people to think:  “well,that person lived a good long life.”  It is quite another to start pushing up flowers at a younger age.

I want to have a large chunk of self-directed time before I start playing a harp.  I want Kathy and I to have that together.

Inaugural Post


Well, we are trying to make the move to Word Press.  Our previous blog provider is getting out of the business.  I am sure we will be learning more about wordpress and how to best use it.

We’ll see how it goes.  Just started and do not have many clues yet.  Do not know if we will be able to import posts from our old blog here.

Don’t even know if we will be able to see this one at kathron.net, which is supposed to be our domain now :).  WooHoo, saw it on kathron.net.

Veremos, amigos, veremos
