Re: I do need to find time to take more pictures so...

I escaped about five years ago due to ill health so retirement was not a sudden change. I found this site helped with outside contacts until I physically recovered. I also got more involved in an...

Re: I do need to find time to take more pictures so...

I ran my own business for 37 years, and was very very glad to sell it and retire some 2.5 years ago. I too have to cook for the poor missus who still works, (her choice) but my cooking might...

Re: I do need to find time to take more pictures so...

I retired seven years ago (1 year early) and I've loved every single minute of it.
