    Leisure Time

    My first two days of retirement were pretty busy doing things around the place and sipping a few beers. When I woke up this morning and was considering what chores to do it hit me that I don't have to do anything that I don't want to do. That settled it for me, today will be a day of total leisure time. Not having to think about going to work will take some getting used to but I'll make that adjustment with ease. For some reason I seem to be smiling all day long. Haven't got out the fishing gear yet but soon, real soon.

    It gets better with time too. After working for 30+ years I almost forgot how to relax.
    It took me a while to learn to slow down. Now I am just waiting for the nice weather
    to move in so I can get some "porch time" in with my wife and pooches.

    Wait until you have been "retired" 15 years, by then you will be looking for things to do because you are bored, bored, bored.

    Not a chance. I have been retired for approx. that long and I am busier and happier than ever and am enjoying myself very much.
    If you sit down and do nothing of course you will be bored. My wife just retired and it got even better because now we have all the time
    in the world to do what we want. People who don't enjoy retirement didn't enjoy life in the first place.

    I did not even get 2 sentences into your post and was thinking "Be real tough to decide between fresh water fishing or salt water fishing."

    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.

    So bored this week, truck is in the shop, the wife is off doing what woman do, no brass to reload, it's cold and raining outside. Reckon I'll put out some peanut butter bait outside my workshop window and see if I can bag a few tree rats while I'm in a nice warm spot....

    One of the things I enjoy the most about retirement is sitting on the front porch with my wife and coffee, and watching the people across the road leave for work.

    That's funny.
    My wife and I don't get up that early.
    We watch them all drive by on the way home from work in the evening.
    We wave and smile..........them.....not so much.
