I am going to retire.

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Congrats
Retired myself in july, 2007, never regretted it but still don't get to go fishing whenever I want.
"Things" come up besides work. In any case, people I worked with also did not say much til about 6 months later when a big project came up, they could not (IMO, didn't want to) do it. So they convinced management to hire me back as a consultant. CHA-CHING$$ but could only take it for about 6 months and I was done.

gillhunter,
I was medically retired from the army in Jan 2012. I'm 46!!! The VA has labeled me unemployable. I thought I would spend most of my time fishing, but there is always something going on. I get out when can which is not as often as I would like.
Thanks
BobbyR

After a year I often wonder how I ever found time to work a job. I admit to being not as fast as I once was with chores but even so I don't stop most days.

Well I'm on my 4th week of retirement and have actually gotten out to fish a few times during the week which is really nice. The last time I was away from work for more than a week was in 1990, so this is an adjustment.
Fortunately my wife and I have been "empty nesters" for about 15 years and we have developed some hobbies, fishing, the tin, wood working, and for her gardening, which I get to do any heavy lifting :LOL2:.

Today is garage cleaning day. My "honey do" list has no end.

Glad you're enjoying it!

I'm on my sixth year of retirement. Looking forward to my new canoe arriving Thursday.

I just finished installing automatic sprinklers at my son's house and almost finished fixing and rerouting my GF's new automatic sprinklers just installed by a PRO. :roll:

The work never ends, but I'm enjoying all of it. We do manage to get some fishing time in too!
