Every night is Friday night, and every day is Saturday.

When the weather is really crappy, you can just say screw it and stay home.

When the weather is too hot I move to the mountains where it is cooler~ when it gets too cool I move to the valley where it is not cold and I don't see any snow. That means its always nice weather. I sop in the mornings and afternoons when the stores are not crowded by the working people. I plan my weeks around my fun activities and vacation whenever I feel the need to take a trip.

My dad used to say Sunday drivers "have nowhere to go and all day to get there." That also pretty much sums up retirement.

You don't always know what day of the week it is and best of all, Mon. through Fri. you don't care. Weekends are only days to avoid diving, shopping and going out to eat.

LOL, we have a couple of get togethers we regularly do on specific days of the week, so we do pretty much keep track of the days, but I admit when nothing is going on I might have to ask my husband what day of the week it is.

But you know, the good thing about being a senior is that if you miss senior day this week, you can always get there next week.

And having spent what I consider many more days than a human being ever should having to get out and fight traffic and slog through crappy weather over the years I worked, I get particular pleasure in NOT having to get out when the weather is lousy, and being able to change my plans for the day to avoid having to fight it. At least most of the time.
