I love Lawrence, but I have my eye on 2 acre lot 5 minutes from the beach in Belize.

This assumes one has the ability to retire.

I dont plan on living in kansas one second longer than I need to.

Can't retire...need health insurance...

I hope that when I get to that age that I will be able to retire. I have a feeling though that I will be working until the day that I really retire

Just think.... perfect climate, and free wealth management to boot - you wont have any wealth if you live here- .... and.... and... you get to ride the "T" to campus.

I am retired and live in Lawrence, but I have been questioning that decision a lot lately.

"I am retired and live in Lawrence, but I have been questioning that decision a lot lately."

There is much better quality of life elsewhere. The city, county and state look upon retirees as tax delivery units, nothing more.

Absolutely. I'm going to change my name to "Grey Squirrel", enroll in some classes at KU, and hang out at Wescoe and tell fantastic stories to the students that gather around me. (Hopefully picking up some young college girls along the way with my seductive creepy-old-man stare.)

I am retired and we moved here after my husband retired. I would not want to live anywhere else. There is not enough money in this world to get me to move back to IL

I have a feeling that the only way that I will be able to retire is to get myself arrested (maybe by then I will be able to get arrested by buying k-2) and spend my last few years in a prison (kind of like a retirement home) where I will not have to pay rent, food, or utilities also it will give my kids or grandkids a real reason not to visit me

i agree w/ the first poster, i russell, i want to go to a warmer climate.

I am retired, and when my wife retires I can't imagine us living here. Weather is not great, traffic patterns getting around town are a joke. There isn't much here other than retail and KU. The community is not growing but unemployment is. The people are great though, they really are.

Obama is forcing me out of the country. I refuse to pay taxes for the rest of my life for big company bailouts that only help the top executives and dont create any jobs. I dont want his socialized health care and wont be paying for that either. Classic example of taxation without representation. Who needs this crap?

Not enough jobs in Lawrence for those who do not want to sit around at home. There has never been enough decent paying jobs.

Do seniors want to work at a polluting sand pit? Of course not!
