I've been retired since July 1. Today I sat at the edge of a river and panned for gold. I love retirement!

Cool! Did you find any? I love being retired as well. There is just so much stuff you can do when you don't have a job taking up so much of your day!

I took a train ride - never even left the station at the other end - just caught the return train after waiting less than an hour.

Today I plan to go to the Gym and take a nap. It'll probably be a hassle going on the Fort today.
