I am officially RETIRED !!
« on: January 21, 2018, 12:48:20 PM »
As of Dec 30 last year I am retired from my grueling day job at the paint store, lifting heavy objects all day and working like a 20 year old. I've had three weeks off now and my body already feels better. My attitude is much better too.

I will have to get something part time pretty soon, but meanwhile I am working in two bands and looking forward to playing a lot more this year. Lack of band jobs has made Jimmy a dull boy.  ;)

See ya around!

Good to hear Jim!  I retired January 2015 and for some reason never seem to have as much time on my hands as I think I should.  I do wake up later every day though!

Rock On!

Yessir, it looks like I will be pretty busy too. One of the best things is that I have turned off my alarm clock. I don't mind being busy, but it's always better when it's on your own time.

Congrats and enjoy. By my calculations, I've got about four years to go before I can pull the handle.

Pulled the plug after 36 years back in 2010.


Seems like even less time to get all the stuff done now. ;D

I used to get up at 5 and now it's 6 o'clock. That feels like sleeping in.
