RonCongratulations. Retirement is a summer vacation that never ends. Enjoy!Barry and Sue
From reading your posts I gather this advice may not apply to you, but one can never be sure. AVOID death by chair! It is so easy to settle into a routine of sitting and thinking, or reading, or watching TV. Sure, retirement means slowing down but that comfy chair will pull you in and suck the life out of you. I know you are active in your church and community so that will help... but leads to more advice: learn to say no. If you don't, you'll wind up with a full time job that you don't get paid for. Now is a good time to make that "Bucket List" for each of you and get to it.It will take time to adapt but I think you're going to love being retired. I was beyond ready but John was not. He was happy at his desk and in his chair. Within two months on the road, he was totally into it. So, congratulations, relax and enjoy!H
