I’m a retiree who is also a music lover, so I’ve sort of combined the two to make this blog. It started as an offshoot of my old website (GEEZERWEB — now discontinued because most of my attention is here these days). In 2006, after I realized what a great job WordPress does with blog hosting, I migrated everything over here. Smartest thing I ever did.
I’m located in the Midwestern US, and before my retirement was a manager at a facility that was part of a middle-sized company — which was then swallowed up by a much bigger company. The end was in sight, and when our location was shut down I took early retirement. At that time, I recognized the need for a way for former co-workers and friends to keep in touch, so I started a site on the web. It was a scrolling, regularly updated source of news, gossip, pictures and links — a blog, years before I’d even heard the word.
With the Geezer Music Club, I’ve entered the world of conventional blogging and I’m having a ball. I think there’s a real need for Seniors (or Geezers as I like to call us) to stay active in all ways, and that’s one of the reasons for some of the things I do on the internet. That — and to keep me out of Mrs. BG’s hair.
