I'm just done with working life and want to spend more time working with my church, getting my NRA pistol instructors certification and doing a little daydreaming. It's just me. I will be getting my Naval Reserve Retirement pension at 59 (one year early due to combat tours). Pick up a part time job and start that phase of my life. I can't wait.

Good for you! That pesky work takes up too much of our play time. LOL.

Sounds like OP already has some good ideas for activity. Maybe a part-time job with gun instruction or at a range or something? Congratulations on your decision, especially after your service!

Make sure you have good earmuffs, hearing aids are a PITA.

Thank you for your service and enjoy your well deserved time off.


And absolutely no joke about protecting your ears..... ask DH. He was teaching someone and kept taking them off and putting them back on for the questions and conversation-----and then forgot to put them back on.
The good news is Costco hearing aids seem to be pretty decent. but hopefully you are more focused and don't forget to use your "earmuffs".
