Pat and I are often asked why we chose to retire here in Paradise instead of Calgary.

Lots of arguments why we should have chosen Calgary.  Our kids are there and our grandchildren.  We had 5 great years living in Calgary in the late 80s.  Stampede parties and lots of friends.

But when it came time to retire, we needed an easier life.

Here is an example.  It is Labour Day 2020.  Now normally we would be watching the Banjo Bowl with the Riders and the Blue Bombers, but not going to happen this year.

Instead we were dining on BBQ chicken sitting on our patio just watching the sun pass by.  Lovely comfortable 23 C.

If we had retired in Calgary this is what we would have had this evening.

I think we made a good decision.
