Congratulations! Monday's are always so hard, but this sounds like a great one! Enjoy being retired.

So Red, what's the plan? Catch up on sleep then venture out to explore the world?

Congratulations!

How early is "leaving early"?

No more jarring forced awakenings, just wake up when you are ready.


Exactly! This is the last morning I had to wake up to an alarm. No more!

I'm anxiously and impatiently waiting for the weather to warm up enough for gardening and yard work. I've spent too much of my life trapped inside a building and staring at a blank wall.


Now I will actually have time. I live on an acre. No more rushing home and trying to squeeze in a whole day's gardening/yard work in an hour and a half and half killing myself to get it all done.


I know that's not very exciting, but it's what I look forward to doing

You'll need to change your heading under your CD name.

Maybe "No longer Livin for Friday" ?

uhoh-now you're going to lose track of time. You won't know what day of the week it is. You'll know Monday is one of these days but which one?



yea, you better keep working so you don't get confused.


or enjoy the confusion. That'd be best.

I think anything one looks forward to is exciting. Just had a discussion with a retired friend and we agreed that people who want to climb Mt. Everest, etc., might have a few screws loose or something.
