  • I’d take a walk along the road leading to the woods where owls hang out.
  • I’d play with my grandchildren and tell them stories either in person or over the Net.
  • I’d sit on the dock in the afternoon to reflect and record notes about my life.
  • I’d go for a swim and watch the sun go down while sitting on the dock.
  • I would eat unlimited amounts of butterscotch ice cream.
