My wife, Debbie and I are now empty nesters. This is very new to us. We've been filling much of our time learning things we hadn't had time to do in the past. I'm starting to do some basic woodworking projects that I've never had the time to do before. I really enjoy being able to work with my hands and problem solve. Of course, we are at the age of learning all about pickleball. Not too good at it yet but having fun trying. Staying active and healthy is important for us. Someday grandkids will be in our future. On Friday nights we enjoy searching Madison and towns near us for the best Supper Clubs around.
