About

Hi. Welcome to my site.

Robby Robin is my current alter ego, my first “literary” character!  His journey is a metaphor for my own journey through the world of retirement and grandparenthood.  In everyday life I’m known as Jane Fritz.  I am a fairly recent retiree living in Atlantic Canada, enjoying the freedom to pursue some of my interests in more depth than was possible while working.  In this blog I hope to share some things I have learned through exploring activities with a vengence in my mid-60s (like long distance running and writing for my grandchildren). Various other topics will inevitably pop up, in keeping with a lifetime of experiences, such as: encouraging entrepreneurship (resulting from my work in the IT industry and regional economic development); travel (we’ve been lucky that way); and, farming exploits (we spent 9 of our early married years living on a farm as transplanted urbanites).  Sorry, it’s not too focused, is it?!  I am also looking forward to learning from others in the blogging community.

    So Jane, you decided to join the small clan of Uncle Spike followers, sometimes known as The Spikey’s…. That makes me a happy blogger now – I really appreciate you making that special mouse click.

    Hope you like my upcoming posts and if you get bored one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too.

    If you have any likes, dislikes or suggestions about my blog, just let me know, either through ‘comments’ or via email. Always welcome reader input 🙂

    Have a great old day…

    Thanks for following my blog, Jane. Nice to meet you. I will be following you as well. Not retired yet, but getting to that age. I’m a voice teacher, may never totally retire, unless I can’t physically do it anymore.

      Nice to meet you, too, Rosemarie, thanks to heyjude @ Travel Words. I look forward to following your adventures! A voice teacher, very cool. I am very much a recreational chorus alto.

    Jane, you’re my heroine! It’s so great that you have time to focus on the things you really love. My kids have always said that I should write for children, so maybe someday I’ll write for my grandchildren, too! Keep up the good work and I look forward to reading about it. 🙂
