“ I would say North Carolina, somewhere on the coast. It’s clean and relaxing.”

1st class in a jumbo jet that takes me anywhere I want to spend the following day.

Since I'll probably never get to retire, no sense in thinking about it.

You would like my husband's cast iron skillet collection.

The north end of the southern island of New Zealand.

I agree with Nicole Reiz. Definitely Eugene, OR.

I like it fine right here in Larrytown, thank you, but North Shore on Oahu is sounding better by the minute! Can you smoke a decent brisket, babs? Or is that too much tassle? er...I mean hassle.

A combo strip bar/barbecue joint - wow, talk about your pulled pork.

I like it here for all but winter. I'm angling for a little joint to Spend Dec. - Feb. in Apalachicola, FL. Leave after deer season, come home when the spring breakers show up.

Realistically? Coeur d'Alene, Idaho or Colorado Springs, Colorado.

My granddaughter says I have to come with her when she goes to college. I will be retirement age by then......I think she just wants me to cook and wash clothes. Sadly, I will probably have to stay right where I am.....

I'm a fifth generation Kansan, I've lived in Lawrence for 30 years, my house is paid off, hate the winters, but I'm here until the end. Never will be able to retire but this is home.

Richard Crank 5 years, 9 months ago

Poitiers, France; first, San Juan, Puerto Rico, second; or Seattle, WA, 3rd. But I'll probably end up here.

Oh well ...
