    Related to this, I had a thought about some kind of federally sponsored RV campgrounds for seniors just like this. Seems like it wouldn't cost much to operate and it would allow these people to have...

    I'm loving the hair and clothes of the 1920s. Also watching with interest the Mr. Mason potential matchup with Mrs. Patmore. But the dinner scene with Lord Grantham was something else!

    Agree with other posters here, freshstart, take pride in your career, and give yourself time to mourn its end. Good idea to consider it early retirement because that's really what it is.
