We’ve officially made through the darkest days of the year, in what turned out to be a pretty grey and drab winter in Grey and Bruce counties.
Now, though, the sun is setting at 6 p.m. or later and it will continue to shine its light past 6 p.m. until the first of November, with each day of the spring getting longer until it gives way to summer and fall, and we again begin our preparations to hunker down.
It’s glorious to have these extra hours of daily daylight to spend outside, whether it’s family activities, extra ‘me’ time with walks in the sun instead of under the cover of darkness, or more time to tackle the never-ending list of outside chores.
This issue marks the beginning of Year 9 for Grey-Bruce Boomers, an accomplishment of which our family is very proud. With each passing year I wonder if we will ever run out of topics that interest local older adults or educated and passionate local contributors to write for us.
I will forever be amazed at the knowledge, expertise and talent in our area, and there seems to be more topics than space to address them all in our pages. This issue is no different, with our Bucket List story outlining a local man’s quest to restore an historic war tank. We also learn more about sexuality and finding love at an older age. We take a trip to Hawaii with travel writer Jill Ellis-Worthington, and learn tips on lining up your personal finances after a dementia diagnosis. Thank you to all our writers!
Have a wonderful spring!
