Retirement, Simple Living, and Me: Warning! Talk of Physical Fitness

So I've noticed there seems to be a plethora of articles on the subject of retirement. Apparently, old folks need an enormous amount of guidance on how to spend their days, money, and leisure time. One article encouraged moving into a community of "like minded" people, whatever that means, and another suggested getting a dog. I guess that one is so if all else fails, at least you'll have one loving and loyal friend.   Although there are numerous articles that  deal with different subjects, they all seem to end up  with:  You need to get up off the couch and get moving!   Apparently, lack of movement is the number one hazard for old folks. Who knew?  I would have thought the only way to avoid a hip fracture or other catastrophe would be to stay completely still. But I guess that's just me.  I am not going to waste any one's time by saying I have always been and continue to be a fitness buff.  I wouldn't even know how to start making up a story like that
