Retired at 57 turn 65 in July. Snowbird - back in MN. Our yard sucks after bad winter. Mowed, planted some grass, cleaned my gun, cleaned gutters, home depot trip and home before the rain sets in. Dinner in the oven - enjoying an Old Scout now and doing some office work and surfing.

For the hot tub owners;
Install an Ozone Generator and balance from there.

Get up around 5:00 every morning and head down to the clubhouse to exercise for 90 minutes or so and then come back home for breakfast.

Building a deck for a neighbor so I work on it for 4 or 5 hours depending on how hot it gets. I usually give up when the temperature gets to the high 80's or low 90's.

That will be the next few weeks for me and then I will be building a garage for some friends that just moved here.

Doubt I will ever retire. Probably just work less and at something I enjoy.

I'm not retired. I had to go collect some rent and find somebody to fix a few things. Met the repairman at McDonald's where it's 72 degrees inside and 100 outside. I think I'll sit in McDonald's a while and post on the CF 😎

50. Retired. Woke up at 8 am. Washed my motorcycle at 10. Went and had lunch at 1230. Ran to the Post Office. Surfed the web for some new motorcycle tires. And waited around for some ******* who wanted to come look at my other bike posted for sale. Second day in a row the ****** bailed last minute saying "Can we meet tomorrow? Got busy today." Sent a polite "My time is just as valuable as yours. Go F'k Yourself" response.

Retired or not.....don't dick people around wasting their time.

Up early for doctor appointment, then errands. Back at the house by lunch time and spent afternoon putting one of my mowers back together. Tomorrow is mowing day after a 30 mile bike ride. Boring I know but itís what I like to do.

Some life-sapping activities in the morning, lunch at a pizza joint, then worked on a new lighter weight front bellypan for the '69, trying to get ready for a track day on Friday.

Retired at 62, will be 71 soon.
Went to Menards with wife to get 250 s/f of flooring for kitchen/utility room, will start tomorrow. Went up on the roof to get the maple seedlings out of the downspouts then made some 1/4 spacers for the flooring corners.

Installed new Comcast modem/router for 3 towers and 5 wireless devices plus the to security dvr units.
