    Susie, would you settle for 27, serious rock climber, and about to move to New Jersey to work for Johnson & Johnson? Former employee of mine who just completed his MBA...

    Since I'm a J&J shareholder, does that mean he is an employee of mine, too?

    Mr. Silver, don't go away. I enjoy your posts, and I know I'd like you in person, too. What a kind person you are!

    My mom died when my oldest son was 14. One of the last things she told me was that my husband and i should have a "hobby" to do together. I was always running out to the gym, leaving my husband home. When he started cycling, I would go to the gym then. It was him forcing ME to get out there on his old mtb, pushing me up a small hill with the back of his hand, that embarrassed me into wanting to become a cyclist. We also do almost everything together and while, I have friends, I don't feel the need for separate vacations, etc.
    Even if your adult kids come home, you still need common interests. I agree with Mr. Silver. Although mine have not returned to the nest, if they do, it's rent time!

    I completely agree! My DH and I have always done things together....from home improvements, to cycling (he got me interested), to taking long walks with our dog, to traveling. In the past couple of years we've discovered that we love kayaking, hiking, and sailing together; and we're learning to do tilework by doing our new sunporch (which we built together -- he did most of the work, but I helped!) floor together. We hope to start doing some backpacking/camping this year too!

    We were never able to have children so I think that helped us stay involved in activities together -- we've always been "empty nesters". Many friends of ours say that they envy all the things we do together and how active we are. I feel lucky too! We'll celebrate our 22nd anniversary this May.

    Mr. Silver, I think you bring a wonderfully subtle nuance to the discussion here, and I hope that you stick around. If you do need to seek out some male cycling interactions from time to time, the Clydesdales on BF are a really great bunch of guys.
