DH had to take early retirement at 59 due to deteriorating vision. He was a high rise construction project manager and it got too dangerous being 30 stories up and not seeing too well!
I did retire for a year after a long career in nursing, doctor's offices and hospitals but wanted some extra money for travel and toys! Started working part time from home 2 years ago as a Medical Transcriptionist. I'm in Ontario, but work for the Vancouver Island Hospital Association!
It is something I could do "on the road" if we ever decided to spend more time travelling. Right now we are enjoying the country property we retired to after so many years in Toronto. Life is very good.
I think our generation was so fortunate. Jobs were everywhere, anyone that wanted to work had no trouble doing so. Today it is a lot harder.
