What’s a Curmudgeon? Answer: Experience Speaking Common Sense

Last week at the Northwest Washington Fair my good-friend Lorraine found a special local magazine published for senior retirees, Northwest Retirement Magazine. Northwest Retirement Magazine is a print and online publication full of articles and advertising which focuses on the needs of seniors.

Lorraine shared this article with me and I enjoyed it so much I wanted to share it with you. Northwest Retirement Magazine is a free publication, so I trust that I am not violating anyone’s property rights by sharing this article published in the latest issue of their free magazine for retired people.
