    Welcome to the club. You can get even with them.Call in to see them at work & tell them you are going for a nice drive along the beach or something & you're sorry they can't join you.

    A person can retire at ANY age! The problem is having enough money to do so! LOL:)

    Hi Mel.Good to hear from you.

    Clu, When I retired- - - -same thing. Nobody in my familly said anything to me.....Course they all live miles away.But, they could have called adn asked,or heard by word of mouth that I retired. Nobody among my friends and neighbors said anything too. And it's a big, life changing step.

           But, Clu, congratulations, and have a happy retirement for the rest of your life. What kind of work did you do ?   ~ ~ ~ ~  J D 


    I worked in factories in Quality control This was VERY stressful! Then to the casino in housekeeping!

    Happy Retirement.   Enjoy unwinding from routine.  It's great but keep yourself occupied with hobbies, friends, reading etc etc


    It all sounds good! Thanks for responding!

    We love our retirement, get to watch grandkids some, and do what we like, sometimes that is nothing! 


    I'm thinking nothing can be excellent!

    Having the option "to do nothing" is great!

    Congrats clu I'm right behind you...,,,,!! Think I only have bout 50 years to go...


    Thanks JDB Time will fly wait and see!

    My dad retired at 62. Back then, that was considered young to retire. Anyway, he really enjoyed the cottage that he built, and all his clubs and organizations......including his model trains that he built by scratch, and the tracks,etc.  were O guage.    And he and my  mom traveled. She had never traveled before.  He died at 78 . So, he had a good run.


    Good for your Dad. I do think a retired person needs a hobby or something to do. So far so good for me!
