We 50somethings have raised our children and have nudged them to exercise their wings. But we still need to keep close tabs on mom or dad. We've worked most of our lives. But we are probably beyond our "most productive" years. We've paid our share of taxes. And we have witnessed our savings diminish to the point that we are extremely fearful about outliving our resoures. We find enjoyment in movies, books, eating, getting together, learning, self-improvement, eating, politics, religion, hobbies, cards, health and fitness, and you-guessed-itt--eating. We reserve bragging rights about our grandkids. We like good deals, Medical ailments are a necessary nuisance. We are building retirement, estate, and travel plans. And some of us are embarking on new careers.
With you help, I begin my never-ending trek to find what's great in Santa Barbara for the over-50 year olds. This includes early bird specials, where to get a flu shot, how to volunteer for an organization, where to take visitors, how to fight an identity scam, where to get an advance directive, who's who in estate planning, where to find a gym, personal trainer or body worker, and great places to share an inexpensive meal.
Note: Above is a photo of the one of the contestants in the famous Dog Parade of Santa Barbara last June, an event you won't want to miss!
