But, today, as Lehman Brothers went under and Merrill Lynch found new parents, and as 21st century, now under AIG and soon to be someone new, flounders….and as I’m just sitting here watching my portfolio plummet and wondering how many years until the rebound, I have to ask myself some obvious questions. How long will I really have to work until? My 70’s? My 80’s? My 90’s?
I’m thinking (and let me know if you think I’m really wrong here), as I sit and watch 70-somethings working to make a few additional dollars, that I’ll be working, whether I like it or not, into my late 70’s, early 80’s and possibly longer if anyone will have me.
So, I’m looking for a way to extend my writing career and may have to change the name of my blog to go along with it. How about “Gen Plus Plus — Finding Work at 80 Plus”. Has a nice ring to it, I think. And it ensures I’ll have something to keep writing about for the next 30 years or so…wonder what Tina Fey would say?
