As of yesterday, I have applied for social security, and consider myself retired. We are moving forward with our plans to move within the next month or so. Hopefully, my eye will improve over this same time period, and we can just get on with our lives.

Well, time for another quick update. We have reached agreement with Charlie Zeller, at Ship to Costa Rica to move our household belongings to Costa Rica. The movers will pack and load us at the end of the week, March 19 & 20. Our container should leave Dallas that weekend. We will commence our farewell tour (tickets at Ticket Master and other authorized agencies) that weekend, with a trip to Austin to be present at the baptism of our newest grandchild. Then, since we anticipate 4-8 weeks transit time, we hope to spend some time in El Paso, with more grandkids, and then spend our last few day/weeks in Arlington, with our daughter & her lovely girls. Therefore, we anticipate arrival in country sometime around late April to mid-May.
I will try to keep things up to date from wherever we find ourselves during this time, and as soon as we get in country, I will post the next steps in finalizing our residence (means yet another trip to La Uruca, to La Migracion).
