The most decadent thing ...

What is the most decadent thing you do (every now and then) after you've FIRE'd?

Today, I spent the ENTIRE DAY in bed with DW -- I harrassed her and she let me -- we finally got up at 3:45 in the afternoon -- had a conac at 5:00 PM -- wasted the entire day -- I started to plan my trip to Hell, this summer (really).

So, what do you do?

Have a dinner out with a NICE bottle of wine. Normally I drink a nice, hearty
syrah or cab, but I have had a friend pick up several bottles from France from
a shop there that sells some really classic wines. A very interesting experience.
I never would have bought bottles like this before retirement, on the basis that
they would have delayed retirement.

Once or twice a month i will buy a small pack of cigars and the first of many coffee's then get in the car and drive all day,usually put about 300 to 500 miles on the car,kinda of a waste of gas but i just love going somewhere.

Sometimes be a couch potato, did that a lot the first year and loved it, then the novelty wore off. Went for rides exploring a new area and enjoying a brand-new pickup truck (2nd in my life). Bought a fold-up boat (A Folding Foldable Portable Fishing Boat And Dinghy By Porta-Bote Portabote Porta-Boat Portaboat Foldboat * Portabot) & 5 hp outboard to go fishing on the Potomac River.
I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.
