Being retired is tough

Yes it is but someone has to do it. I will be hitting the road again this weekend. Yea! That's right! I will be heading back to Florida. This time I will be solo. I will be spending a week around kissimmee area. It was kind of a last minute thing. I was given a room in a condo. My oldest son has his companies condo for a week and has extra room. I looked at my wife when he asked me to go and she said "GO!!" She said you don't know how many years you have left that you can ride. You need to take advantage of any opportunity.

Oh yea!

This whole retirement thing is taking up so much of my time; I really don't know how I ever had enough time for a job!

So you plan to hang out with the giant rat of Kissimmee? Maybe take him for a ride on your bike.

There are two things you can learn from all this and teach your sons. Always marry a gal who will find a job and is much younger than you so she can keep working to buy the groceries and help pay for your RTE's after you retire. My wife is still working and is 10 years younger.
