I retired early it open the doors for many adventures. I drove over the road, worked in a couple Poultry Plants, run a Press for Slacks and was a Seedsman cleaning Farm and Lawn Seed. Completely retired I enjoy Hunting and Fishing. Thing is go by places with Help Wanted Signs out and say to my wife I sure would like working there. My wife says it will interfere with your Hunting and Fishing. Well this is true.

Sounds like you retired early and then went to work! Seriously, when work interferes with your hunting and fishing, well, there's only one answer for that....

Like BrightDogLover, I am excited but still can't quite grasp the fact that I only have two more days of working
Unless you love your job or your identity is your job, you'll enjoy retirement. Leisure can be addictive.

I'm closing in on my 4th year of retirement. Today I finally purged the remainder of my reference books... about 50 in all that I had been hauling around. I've moved twice since I retired and am about to move again. I see it as a seminal event where I've acknowledged I'm past the point of returning to my previous career. I had a moment of emotion as I tossed those books in the dumpster... but only for a second.
