Retirement has been a discovery of beauty for me. I never had the time before to notice the beauty of my grandkids, my wife, the tree outside my very own front door. And, the beauty of time itself. Ed in Hitchcock

Life begins at retirement. I'm retired-goodbye tension, hello pension! Ed.......................................................

What's retirement? I'll be working till I die but my broker won't.

Believe it or not but at 42, I've only got 4 more years. The County doesn't pay a lot but the retirement package is kick arse. I'm planning on retiring in 2015. By then the house will be paid off. I'll probably do something else in order to double dip for few years. But that something else will have to leave plenty of time for fishing.

While we work in our vocation, some of us are task oriented and just don't utilize our time to enjoy the surroundings and smell the roses.

Retirement gives us the opportunity to slow down and discover what we have missed experiencing.

God has truly placed us in magnificient surroundings.

Retirement was not for me. I have retired twice due to some lucrative severance packages. I am still working but I like what I do so no problem. I would like to spend more time with the grandson though. But with him in school it becomes weekends anyway.

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishin' poles.

Retirement is not for everybody, I know people that retired and turned right around and went back to work. I retired 2 years ago and haven't looked back, I love it. :cheers:

Retirement

Congratulations; Kind Sir.

I've tried it three times and may get it right next time. I'm a triple dipper and now getting tired of building fishing rods, taking care of the yard and garden and fighting with the old lady. I went back to college, finished that but am really not interested in social work. My kids are all grown and grandkids danged near.

I've even finished all of the 'Honey-Do's' around the house!

Still looking for ideas on something that is interesting. Politics? Not on your life. Maybe I'll become a Community Organizer like Obama was. C2

I retired 2 years ago in August. Haven't missed work one bit. You'll soon hate the weekends (too many people off work those days) everything gets too crowded. And time will start to fly by. Enjoy it, I sure do...
