    Cheers

    I am now retired.

    Looking at post #579 this makes more sense. I could really get into that. I like food and I like to fish. :LOL:

    You know digs, this retirement thing doesn't mean that you just sit around and do nothing, but you already knew that.
    Our first priority is to enjoy ourselves. That means doing more of what we love to do. For TQ members, I would imagine all forms of treasure hunting comes into PLAY. You have your incredible wood working skills that I'm sure you will be dedicating more time to.
    I think what happens is we take on new projects. For me, it will be purchasing a home in Pennsylvania. Then of course, there will be the move, and making sure the house is freshly painted and move-in ready. Busy, busy, busy.
    Yep, that's our new occupation.
    Busy, busy, busy.

    Make sure when you buy that home you purchase the little known "stuff birth control". If you don't your stuff will multiply like craze. I didn't ask about it and mine has. I KNOW I didn't bring all this stuff in. It gets happy and next thing you know there is more and more stuff.

    That is for sure and I don't mind one little bit. The thing I notice is that with no deadlines or time restraints I seem to get more done and it gets done better. I am spending time in the shop. Just finished a birthday present and today I am starting on tearing out and making brand new pull out shelves in the kitchen. Old ones are getting sticky and I want to build them different. Busy, busy, busy. When the rain ever quits here I do want to get out detecting.

    I know exactly what you mean Andi. After awhile it's like trying to pour a gallon of milk into a pint container.
