About RetComLife

I know the title to this category of posts is kind of cryptic. It stands for “Retirement Community Life”. It is a journal about my life in a retirement community. I am new to this world in that, at the time of writing these words, I have been a resident for only one month. 😏. I have a lot to learn about how to get along in this brave new world. I think you will find these posts to be informative and hopefully a little amusing. Will Rogers is one of my major heroes in life, so RetComLife will be in his tongue-in-cheek style of writing as he taught me.

It is my intention to give you some insight from my personal perspective into what life is about in a typical up-scale retirement community. I want to make it clear up front that I am NOT talking about nursing homes that dot most city landscapes. That is a different story entirely.

I know that my being a deaf aspie puts an unusual spin on my view of the world, but I think much of what I say will apply to all my readers. I will try to add a dose of insight to each post and I hope that through me, you have a glimpse into this world. Who knows, you, like me, might end up in one in the not too distant future. Or maybe you currently reside in a retirement community, if so, I would love to hear your view.

I originally planned on giving you a chronological story, but like many other topics my brain just isn’t that organized right now, and maybe it never will be. If you have any questions about RetComLife let me know. I would be happy to look into it for you. I will tell you up front that after a month in this environment, I am very happy indeed. 😆 Even though it is vastly different from my recent experiences.
