Just a quick post to tell everyone that Alice will soon join the ranks of the notorious 47% when she begins collecting Social Security retirement next month. I’ve given notice at Tidewell Hospice that I would like to be out of there no later than Dec. 28. If it can be arranged I hope it will be sooner. I’ve worked at Tidewell for seven years and have seen, first hand, that life is shorter than we can imagine. There are too many projects that I have delayed because of my job. The good Lord willing I will have time to finish those projects and find a few more. In the words of songster Donavon Frankenreiter, “I’m looking for life, love, and laughter/Everything in between/And what happens after.”

Time to move on down the road.

  1. Kudos, Alice. You will be missed at Tidewell. I completely understand your recognition (from the inside out) that life is too short to delay pursuing your heart’s desires. Keep in touch and best of luck to you in all your endeavors. Carlene Cobb


  2. Alice! Good for you! Your wonderful spirit of adventure will bless all you come in contact with. You were such an inspiration and a help to me and CCC when I was at TideWell. You did good legacy work, you know it will be appreciated for years to come. If your travels bring you to Bradenton, come visit me at Westminster Manor! Best of everything.
