I’m hoping to retire in the next three years.  I am hoping to rebuild a little house that’s on a lake in New York, sell the house here in Chicago.  I probably would think of—if all the money, all that works out—having a loft or condo down in Nashville, Tennessee, and winter down there.  And the other thing I kind of have to think about is that where the house is in New York, it’s in the middle of nowhere.  So, there’s not exactly a lot of what I call, “medical care,” if I needed that.  So that kind of makes me a little nervous.  But, my grandmother who’s 98 lives there, my parents in their 70’s, they live there, and they get through it all, but they have some pretty horrendous stories.  And so, that’s always been a consideration, “Should I even attempt to do that, because of what it is.”  But, I’d like to get at least a few years living on the lake, have a boat, and just go out and do what I can on a boat.  Because we’ve rented pontoon boats, I can get through and work those pretty well.  I participate in bass fishing tournaments and such, which is kind of cool.  So, yeah, I’d like to do that, that’s what I’d like to do.  And I might even teach at a community college, some business or something.  So, things like that.
