Also, we are not exactly wealthy but we have been saving for retirement since we were married, a little each month, every month for more than 43 years. And, now, it's finally here in 25 days!! I don't mean to brag; I'm just so overwhelmed with emotion I wanted to shout out. It's finally here!! Take care everyone!
Congratulations from another Woodlands retiree! Several members here are Woodlands residents.

I've read that you should have a few things lined up on keep busy... No not Clean The
Garage (though that would be nice you slob -lol) stuff like volunteer, join a walking club, join the guys who plan flowers in public spaces. Seems logical that if you've filled some of your free time up you won't miss the job.

IMO
