Thanks! Not a lot of people understand what's involved and especially when the price comes.

Fight with all your might and never give up! Our thoughts are with you, my wife is a breast cancer survivor.

Trust me, as a Vollie there are tons of really great things you can contribute your "Time-Talent-Treasure."

The 'Treasure' is a good thing, but just for the moment. 'Talent' could be similar.

"Time," ah "Time" that clock never stops.

I have been working on a future business venture (still in the home improvement industry) where I would get to travel the united states and possibly canada.
I've always wanted to visit those Donald Trumpish RV resorts for rich people... Nuthin like a pull through, land scaped site with a gold fire pit that your not allowed to use...

Well, I have done many things.. In my youth I shovled political speaches.. ER, Grew up on a dairy farm and shoveled what the bovines left behind (Same thing isn't it? at least if the bovine is a male).

Worked as a security guard, Machinest, Salesman, and for over a quarter century I got paid to tell cops where to go.. Yes, the phone number at the office was 9-1-1.

They still pay me every month.. Only now I no longer answer 9-1-1, nor do I tell cops where to go.

I'm retired many years ago but not by choice, sick mom, and mentally challenged daughter. Just couldn't handle it all, so had to hang it up. I was an accountant, went crazy for a few years. Mom passed on, and I tried to go back to work but could only work 3 or 4 days a week and they wanted fulltime.

So then started messing with rentals and did lots of painting, fixing drywall, etc for quite a few years with hubby and without. I'm kind of stopping that now.

But anyway I'm retired, for last 3 years messing around with motorhomes, spent as much or more time fixing as to using, maybe that will end. DD is still with us and she travels with me.

Hubby intends to work till age 68, he will be 66 in August. He is in good health but like now there are only 1 or 2 guys older then him on his project, he is in the jungles of Borneo working, well supervising but still busy. He used to say he would work till 70, now he says 68, we shall see.
But its fine, I can wait two more years, if I were in his shoes in an interesting job I would still be working too. He is a Civil project manager.

Absolutely and totally RETIRED for the third time. Since emigrating from the UK to work for Boeing, then NASA, then Boeing again, I took my first retirement at age 57. The international travel schedule got to be too much. In my final year, I spent 29 weeks out of the country and none of the trips were more thn 10 days. I had about 600,000 frequent flier miles with 15 different airlines when I retired!

After a couple of years, I got a bit antsy and went to work as a transit coach driver for our county transit system, just 20 miles from where we live. I got my Class B CDL with air brake and passenger endorsement as part of the deal.

A couple of years after I joined, the agency got into a lot of inter-city express services with ridiculous hours, so I bailed out. They subsequently rehired me to do passenger/ridership surveys for a couple of years. I've been retired for the third (and last) time for four years now.
