When you are retired, that's when people say "Hey you have nothing to do, how about....
Not enough time to get to your plans, if you do everyone else's.

That is a good woman right there!

Select the forum you want to post in [Off Topic] for example.
At the top left there will be a green button that says "New Topic"
Left click.

Wife and I are both retired now. Not sure how we ever had time to work. She tells people we are going on vacation when we camp. I have to correct her and tell her "we're not going on vacation, it's what we do!"

And I still hate yard work.

Ain't that the truth!

Folks ask me that all the time. "Now that you are retired, what do you do all day?"

HA! Like they expect me to validate how terrible not going to work is!

I ALWAYS answer, "Oh, we plan vacations; then take them!"
