Ann, a former middle school teacher, is an ideal example of a successful retiree. Ann always has a project she is working on around the house—her latest has been coordinating the repaving of her driveway. She regularly spends time with friends, making lunch dates or attending book club. Ann loves to lounge by the pool during the summer, reading the latest novel. She is passionate about her garden and likes cooking with the vegetables from her backyard. Some of her grandchildren live locally and she will often babysit them. Although she is financially secure, she sometimes enjoys taking the occasional part-time job. Most recently she worked during the local election at the polls.
