Question: As I approach retirement, I know there is a lot I need to protect myself and my wife against. I don’t want to be Chicken Little and run around scared all the time.

Conville, Bobby 2014.jpg

True to form, Baby Boomers are redefining retirement too. The 76 million Americans born from 1946 to 1964 have driven major national trends in their lifetime and are living longer than any previous generation. Today, with the oldest of them having turned 60, some are already retired, or have been forced to retire, and many more are thinking seriously about retirement.

The season here has been good for some folks, not so hot for other hunters. Perhaps the refusal of winter to release its icy grip on northern Louisiana, even as the dogwoods and azaleas defiantly point at the calendar indicating that it’s not supposed to be this cold in mid-April that has led to the reluctance of gobblers to gobble.
