I have noticed that at some of the Wal-Mart's now. It appears that they have given up on the Friendly Wal-Mart Greeters and now have Asset Protection Staff at the entrance/exit's. And in some of them they will check your receipts just like Costco and Sam's Club.

It really isn't that bad. The first day was instructional, the second day I got thrown in at the deep end, and man what a day. They told me it is rare to have a tough day like that, due to the type of concrete pour that day. Since then it is really pretty easy. I will carry on through the summer and build up my travel account, and then back to retirement. I retired at 60 and made it three years before I ran out of retirement busy.

Maynard G Krebs ( Bob Denver AKA Gilligan) of the Dobie Gillis Show would be proud of you! I can still here him painfully say "Woooork!"
Glad you were able to retire when you were able to. However, many of us ( myself included) still need to toil away for a few more years yet.

Update! Tomorrow is my last day. Back to retirement. Big plus is we sold our sticks and bricks that we have been trying to sell for 3 years.

After 31 years as an industrial laundry driver,I retired at 58 and then drove school bus for another 10.Retired again and then after 2 years off went back to the school bus as a substitute and worked all this year. Nice thing about being a sub is that I don't have to work unless I want to.They usually only call me for afternoon routes,1:30 till 4:30.If I'm going on a trip,all I have to do is to say I'm gonna be gone for a few days. I'm working enuff every month to buy fuel and pay for some campground fees.I find that I'm a little looser with the kids now too and I remember why I retired when I get the elementary kids on the bus.Keeps me young tho.

They stated that with the oil and gas boom here in Texas that they are needing to fill many of these positions. They are provided all the resources for their RV (a generator and fuel, a large water tank for fresh water, propane, septic tank, security lights, etc.). They work roughly 6 - 8 months to accumulate funds and then take off the other months to have vacation. Could be an interesting thing for consideration.
One thing about it is that you're "tied down" 24 hours a day as someone has to be up all the time. If my wife didn't earn so much and like to sleep so much, then maybe!!! But then, having a 12 yr old grandson to raise would cause a problem.

Cool

Don't have time to go back to work. Example = just spent three days doing fire mitagation, that is, cutting down trees, collecting dead limbs and chipping all that up in 96 degree weather with 11 % humidity. It is dangerious here in the high country of Colorado. Don't even have time for the banjo or practicing with my new Traveler guitar!
