I retired 4 years ago come June and my first order was to build my daughter and SIL a house so I could get them out of my retirement home. One day I slept in untill 10 and felt so rested and relaxed that I made sleeping in my no.1 priority. I stay busy doing odd jobs now and let my dog 2 cats and 2 horses pamper me. The formal working seem like some distant memory. Most of the chores that used to be such a burdon are now enjoyable. Never thought that digging post holes by hand could be relaxin. You take it easy in your own way and pamper yourself.

enjoy it bob. We all work for retirement and then hope it never comes, but it does offer a chance to put things right. You watch - pretty soon you'll be so busy you'll wonder how ya ever had time for piddly things like work & chores. Now you have time to replant & let grow some of those things you've been harvesting for years. Think about it and enjoy your freedoms. :)

Wouldn't hurt finding some kids, young minds, to relate your more colorful experiences too. Not everything important to a child comes from a book. Kids listening to us oldsters soon get the idea whatever they thought their parents were telling jusst might be so. History repeating itself. Check out 4H. Go to fairs and tell the kids their doing okay. Kids need more reasurance than we do.
While it may be to late smart for us it ain't to late to try to smarten the youngsters a head of us.
And above all share the eraly times with the Mrs's.
If there's anything I almost hate's as much as mud, it's Clink reminding me of my varried stupid stunts or fouled displays of the manly arts.
Given a little time you wont have time to finish tomorrow what ya didn't finish yesterday.
Here's to new horizons
Do you play checkers?
