As stated on the title page, this blog is about the joys and challenges of retired life. I’m John Parker, who along with my wife Trisha, wrote the book The Best of Our Lives: Sharing the Secrets of a Healthy and Happy Retired Life. We consider retired life to be a new beginning, not an end.  We see it as an opportunity to redefine one’s life. Remember when everyone asked you what you wanted to be when you grew up. Well, in our book and in this blog, we want people to seriously consider and answer the question, “What do you want to be in your retired life?” We have spent years researching and writing about this topic and want to share our research discoveries, expert advice, and our own personal experiences as we go through this time of life ourselves.

Our expertise stems from our education and careers. Trisha was a business executive with extensive management and financial experience, and I was a member of several college faculties, as well as a management consultant during my career. Best of all, we are trying to live the things we write about in our book and in this blog.
