What did I do today? I searched craigslist for the perfect sofa for Rosie. I gave Our dog Spartacus a bath and I sewed on the front curtain panel for our Airstream.

Been retired since march. Discovered my wife and I can live entirely on our ss payments. I owe no one anything except normal daily, monthly bills. But the best thing since I am officially OLD I can say whatever I want to to whoever I want to and pretty much get away with it. We can still travel some and are enjoying our lives more than ever before. I hope everyone on the forums can do this eventually also. Jim

Yes, getting old is full of choices.

I want to go peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather.

Not screaming, like the passengers in the back seat of his car.

Wondering why Bruce is even thinking Whitsend is even near getting up at 0800.

I'm approaching fourteen years of retirement, nothing is better. It's amazing how the days fill up with "important" things that just can't wait, breakfast, fun stuff, lunch, fun stuff, naps, and dinner. Maybe there's a few non-fun jobs that have to be inserted in the daily to-do-list, but we try to miminize them. Just waiting for warmer weather to start prep'ing the AS for the next trip.
