About us

We are Sue and Lee Ann.

We are enjoying a simple but happy retirement together.  Well, one of us is more retired than the other.  We have been together since 1985. In 2016, Sue turned 70 and Lee Ann turned 60. We decided to write about our "adventures" from both our perspectives and as a couple.

Sue, who managed a travel agency, enjoys baking, cooking, walking and her great-granddaughter, Lincoln. Lee Ann enjoys music (keyboards, guitar, ukelele), photography, biking and learning. After retirement from the State of Delaware,she had two part-time businesses, but is now 95 percent retired.

Quelle Surprise!

In October 2019, we drove with two friends to Quebec City and sampled its history, culture, food and drink. Highly recommended!

Journey into silence

Silence is beckoning me now more than ever: the opportunity to be totally unplugged, without even a book other than the Bible and my journal. Several years’ worth of waxy yellow buildup are obscuring my true self. The last retreat I took was in 2012, with the Benedictine brothers in…
