Response to treadmill
...that was almost 14 years ago.
I realized that I had suddenly become my own boss, and that I could assign work (or play) to myself for life. This totally relieved the stress accumulated over 37 years of High-Tech Aerospace work, and I've never been more relaxed in my life!
My weekends suddenly became 7 days long...every week!
For those who have never sampled 100% Retirement with no job at all to go to...you're in for a treat, PROVIDED YOU HAVE FINANCIALLY PLANNED FOR YOUR RETIREMENT DURING ALL YOUR WORKING YEARS!!!
Since retiring, I have bought a spacious High Desert home and four new cars (without going into retirement savings), plus $25-30,000 in Astronomy equipment.
Not bad for an Hourly worker, Hah?
Am I bragging? Yer dang tootin' I am!
