I finally realized that this whole weekend/football issue was just a piece of larger major conflict. So I made a decision and told her as simply and directly as I could.
Allow me to digress first before I catch flak in how I did it. I know her well enough to know that communicating in email is best. A phone call would be tough on her and in person agonizing. Email will allow her to digest this privately and think about it all.
I have mulled things around and I feel friendship is best. I asked myself a simple question, "Even if everything else is optimal, do you want to live in SEMO for four or five waiting for somebody to retire?" No.

For some people like myself that are retired, we do not feel that we can wait around on somebody for four or five years.Those four or five years are our best window for having the time, money, and health to enjoy the golden years.
Now if you would like to get together as pals for some backgammon, dominoes or Scrabble I would be delighted. Let me know.
