Don't get TOO excited about all the 'free' time to do what you want. 5 1/2 years now for me at it didn't take long before I realized HOW THE HECK I EVER HAD THE TIME FOR A JOB........for 50 years!

ENJOY.....ENJOY.

Congratulations on the new page you are turning, Jim. I find that I love retirement, am in my 4th year.

Just curious though, how did you manage to have no bills? We still have to buy groceries and pay gas and electricity etc.

Let us in on the secret?

It's a wonderful life!

I retired on November 2nd of last year and it is everything I hoped it would be and more.

We had a wonderful retirement party/rally and then spent 2 weeks in Hawaii. 5 rallies and 4500 miles (towing) later we are still making plans for the rest of this year.

Congrats, I pulled the pin last May and never looked back. Wifey is still working so I cook, clean and do some laundry. Have lots of fun, I know I am.

More HAWAII.

Great place to have great fun, without an Airstream, of course.

Now remember to get yourself a "Retirement Clock" it is a clock that only has the second hand ticking...

My wife and I retired about 11 years ago. We told ourselves we'd go until our knees gave out! Then we discovered arthroscopic knee surgery! Now, it looks like there is no limit.

Forget the second hand. You need a "day clock" (Day Clocks) that just has one hand, to tell you what day it is.
