Retired for good last year, every time I retired, another company ask me to come to work. Finally had to say no. I only regret that I should have retired sooner..So, retire as soon as you can and stay retired, don't make the same mistake that I did.

X2 on the retire as soon as you can and stay that way Also can't believe how I got everything done while working. The nice thing now is that I can take my time and do projects right and not have to rush them on weekends. 1 year and 2 months and not looking back

We're newbies to this retirement gig, but one thing we've learned quickly - leave the stores to the working population on weekends.

Miss rush hours? Nah. Miss agendas? Nah. Miss meetings? Nah.

Enjoy the slow lane? Yeah. Enjoy looking at the scenery? Yeah. Enjoy every single day? Ya betcha!!!

Have you reached that point yet where you wonder how you had time to hold down a job and still do everything?
