Hey, thanks! Iím up early on a day off, getting ready to skin the inside of this SOB Iíve got... lots to do today.

I had somebody last week tell me how their 32 year old son that still lives at home couldnít help them around the yard, because he worked 40 hours a week. 40 hours? Man, I leave the house at 5:30 in the morning, work a ten hour day, then go run my gym for three more hours, and get home at 8:30 in the evening, and Iíve still got to maintain my yard, and the warehouses that we own, and Iím refurbing a trailer, AND trying to keep Mrs Red happy... donít even start with me.

Sorry, day off rant... didnít mean to go there. Anyways, I just missed a teeny tiny Airstream a lady had for sale local. $600... never got to see it. She had it sold before I could get there. Although, and I hate to admit this, it is kind of nice working with screws instead of rivers. There, I said it! Yes I did...

Alright, got to put together this weeks workouts, get over to Home Depot for an air nailer, skin a trailer, go pick up the toilet that USPS wonít deliver... but first, this awesome cup of coffee.

-Red, keeping the random in Random Thoughts...

Worst part about being retired: No more days off. Not a one.

I'm not REALLY retired. I'm just in day 1068 of a VERY long weekend!

I want to retire, but I am afraid to. We keep spending too much $$$$$! What do they say? You can't take it with you?

BTW, I love this thread!

I used to be retired.

Then an Airstream entered into my life.

I think that may someday be my story. I got the AS in 2014 but the tow vehicle in 2003. And someday I may choose to replace the TV.

So I bought a new narrow crown stapler to re-skin the inside of this little canned ham I have. I didnít go to Harbor Freight, like I usually do, because I wanted a bit higher quality. Ended up buying a name Iíve known for years, used to be really high quality stuff, Porter Cable... Stupid stapler quit before I got through on course of staples. Striker return spring must have broke, because the little striker pin would no longer return. It moved freely enough, you could bump the stapler against your hand and it would return, as long as the staples were removed. Returned it to Home Despot, and bought a Rigid. Iíll let you know how this one turn out.

-Red, starting to miss rivets...

Best part of being retired: Driving past the airport and not turning in! Especially at 4 am.

I have often wondered if retirement is a frame of mind, retired from what? Is it a life style change? Is it a greater opportunity to expand on the AS forum or for that matter other forums of ones interest? I know we have less squirrels in our bird feeders.

Safe travels

So, at the doctor's this morning, he tells me he is retiring in April. Then he says, you know we are the same age... I look in the mirror on the opposite wall and think, dang, I thought he was a young guy...

Guess I can't die young and leave a good looking corpse anymore!

Typical funeral home phrase: " He/She looks great". No, they look dead.

Cheerful message in Tombstone grave yard.

As you pass by, remember me. For as you are so once was I. And as I am, you soon will be. Remember me.
