    Very good, we need a laugh at our age, lets face it there's not much else.

    Now I am practically retired I have more time to read posts on Fun.

    When I am fully retired I might use the extra time to post rants and raves about all the things I perceive to be wrong with the world and try to score "debating" points against people who take a more optimistic view of people and the world.


    Or I might do more motorhoming which will lead me to even more enjoyment.

    I will also have more time to count my blessings (and pies.)

    I can't for the life of me understand people who say they can't stop working because they can't find anything to do when retired, since I finished nearly 2 years ago, I just can't find enough hours in the day, how I managed to find the time to go to work defeats me, but saying that the difference is you can do things that don't pay, you don't have to do things to make your living just to enjoy them, simple things like going for a walk or reading a book or even, god forbid, watching the tele, or even on here:Wink: but it's time to do what you want not what you have got to do , some say they would miss their companions at work but is that because they have never had the time to meet other people out of work , because that's all they have done.
    Hey the suns out let's go sit in it , that'll do for a couple of hours:BigGrin:
