Let’s get back to another goal shall we?
Getting ready for retirement means getting ready to live out our third act of life. And my hope is that Lorraine and I will enjoy a wonderful life during our golden years.
Our coach will be a big part of that life.

Here is a third goal: during my first two years of retirement I will relearn my conversational French. And, to celebrate, Lorraine and I will take a trip to Paris at the end of that two year period. Assuming, of course, that I can speak French really, really well at that point.
Nothing like a bit of incentive.
When I was 15 years old, I did a French studies program through the Protestant School Board of Greater Montreal. I had the opportunity to travel to France and become immersed in the culture and the language. I have wonderful memories of Bandol and Ile de Bendor, beautiful spots in the Cote d’Azur, where I lived and studied.
I still have my notes from when I studied there. And all I can say is that at one time I had an incredible command of the French language.
Having spent 40 years in a predominantly anglophone environment has taken its toll.
