I've got a year and change on you AT, and you're definitely in better shape than I am.  One of the things I'm liking about being retired is really having the time to work out.  Of course it is also dead necessary.  No worky, no healthy.

At our age we definitely need to stay active. But I don't know about that working until I drop, though! Wink  With what Social Security allows me, since I retired early last year, I can work 23 hours per week where I'm at and not be penalized. Also by working part time SS reevaluates my benefit amount each year for more money. When I turn 66 in three more years I can put in as many hours as I want. But I don't think I want to! Have you thought about working part time any? I don't know if I want to do this too much longer.

In the States we call it either, Cowboy Coffee, or Campfire Coffee. I used to do a lot of camping and that was the way we made our coffee. Also, when we were on the construction site in the winter we made coffee that way as well. It's the best way to make coffee. Anymore for my caffeine high at work I'll eat a spoon full of instant coffee and wash it down with a cup of coffee. I've got a few other people at work hooked on that too. Our production numbers are through the roof.

Cowboy Coffee....




Thank you, Joods! A lot of people tell me that. In Ohio when you turn 60 you get a Golden Buckeye card which gives discounts at participating businesses. I'll get the sideway glances from the cashiers and I'll have to take out my ID to prove my age. Autozone gives a 10% discount to seniors and that comes to quite a savings if you're buying a lot of stuff there.

Discounts are awesome Big Grin

So at 46 years, I'm now starting to get things in the mail for the scooter store and hoverround lol That and the AARP seems to be interested in my life now :|

Ha! I didn't start getting anything from them until I was 50. Now it seems like AARP is sending me stuff every week.

I'm going into my third lap of retirement and I'm finding I like it.  A lot.  My wife is always suggesting that I get a part time job but she is clueless about retirement.  She is ten years older, didn't retire from teaching until I did and still works at making and exhibiting her art work to the point of being busy a lot.  She is in China right not and won't be back until after turkey day giving talks, exhibiting and hob nobbing.  I guess that is what makes her happy but I think she gives retirement a bad name.

Me, I just want to read novels, work in the garden, go to the gym, walk the dogs and set people right on the internet.  Tough job but by gawd some one has to do it.

That's great. You put your time in and you paid into the system. It's past time to enjoy the rest of your life and to do the things you've never had time to do in the past. I hope you enjoy your well deserved retirement. I'll be doing the same full retirement sooner or later.

BTW, next time your wife takes another trip to China you think she could take mine along with her?

Well, to be honest I think infrequent trips apart are just great for a relationship. I enjoy moving at my own rate without the need to coordinate from time to time. Plus her travel has payed for our travel frequently enough.

I'll have to see about her willingness to bring along your wife. Something tells me neither of them is going for it whatever you and I might think.
