Congrats & hope you enjoy a happy & active retirement. I mark the weeks & days of the week by when I have to take out the trash.

Congratulations! Now you can throw away the calendar. It's been 3 years for me and I find myself more and more wondering what day of the week it is and concluding it doesn't make any difference.

Some times it amazes me how long it takes to do nothing.

Have fun and enjoy it

A good friend of mine retired yesterday after 30 years in a factory, she lost her husband a few years ago (also worked in the same factory)....she plans to spend all Summer on Kelly's Island in Lake Erie which sounds devine to me !

Well done Skytroop. It's a great way to spend your days. Eat when you're hungry, rest when you're tired, do what you wish on your clock.

I have retired 3 times in the last 20 years. It is over rated. I work a full time job ad am about to turn 70.

Maybe there will be a 4th time, who knows............

Congrats. You've got 6 Saturdays and a Sunday.
Now enjoy your life. My wife and I say "If we're going to enjoy life we better get started because we're running out of time."
