Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Hi Everybody, I am getting through (most) of the Italian red tape and starting to enjoy this great part of the world.

The "mission" of Senior Bachelor seems to continue to evolve into one of providing hope and inspiration and a reawakening to many readers. Others enjoy the travel parts. And others who do not need hope, inspiration and a reawakening, and do not care about the travel part, like information about cruises, get-togethers and other information pertinent to our age group. This is what your e-mails to me indicate.

I will continue to do what I am doing as long as the readers of the Newsletter would like me to, and if this also is meaningful to me. When I receive letters such as the one below, this inspires me to keep things going, albeit not in the way the Senior Bachelor mission originated!!!

Bobbe, is from Canada, and just sent me the following e-mail. Bobbe will also join me and a group from April 10-20 in Lerici.

To Richard from Bobbe,

As I mentioned yesterday, I am spending three months in Italy indirectly because of you. My first visit to Italy was in 2000, and I fell in love. I have since visited here three more times.

Asking me to pick my favorite spot in Italy would be like asking me to pick my favorite child - it can't be done. I love many places and aspects of this country.

I don't recall exactly when I read your bio, but when I saw that you had spent a year in Italy, I thought "what a lucky guy, how great would that be." The thought was then planted in my sub-conscience.

One month after his 50th birthday, my husband passed away after battling cancer for 4 years. Shortly after than my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, which she battled for 5 years. So better than anyone I realized how quickly life can throw you a curve ball. The thought that was planted after reading your bio, grew to a plan. And my philosophy is DO IT NOW.

Fortunately for me, the planets were aligned, and my plan is now being experienced - living la dolce vita in Italy for three months. And I haven't taken the smile off my face since I arrived.

I encourage everyone in our age group to DO IT NOW! Life does not give us a do-over, and I hope everyone could spend their final days thinking, "I am so glad I did .........", rather than "I wish I would have...."

Richard, I hope you will continue to encourage others to GO FOR IT!!

Hope you are having another great day in Lerici. It is definitely "bel tempo" in Venezia.

Take care.


Good going, Bobbe!!!!!!!!!
