Yep that's the America way. Really too bad. Maybe you ought to move to the country get some fresh air. Drive into the city to work, drive back out to the country to live.
Except now you probably have to drive really far...
Don't you love how the cars get you places quick to enjoy more time wherever you go ... nice eh

Yeah, I bet Chi has spent two of those above-70 years just getting places! At
least it's good for digesting NYT. One might zip around in a car of the same name...

Maybe so Bob. But I'll bet those two years were spent more enjoyably and productively (reading, doing puzzles, sightseeing) than the one year you've spent gazing at the highway ahead and hoping you can keep the vehicle on the road.

And too, living in the city as I get older, provides lots of entertainment and social opportunities, not to mention world-class medical care a ten-minute cab ride away.

Only jest, not judging. Soupbone commentary is infecious :-)

Well if you lived where a 20-minute walk would get you to Stoneybrook Slough, as Bob does, then I could see why you'd want to drive away from the city. To be surrounded by such natural beauty is a rare treat.

But you're surrounded by expressways, soybean fields, and your irate neighbor. Not sure all that driving is doing you much good. You'd be better off living in the City and enjoying the sights here. Ha ha!

But not judging. Now that your wife is retiring (about time!) from that thankless job, I expect your days living in Wisconsin are limited.

Not really, I like Wisconsin, lots of friends around Chicago and it's close to Ohare to get away.
Oh and less cars on the bike riding roads.

Well, see, you could have a second home down here in the City....the condo right next to ours is for sale. And you'd be closer to your friends around Chicago, closer to ORD (take the L; no parking fees!), and ride our bike paths instead of roads, which keep getting longer and better. No cars at all!

And your wife would have a social life!
