You are too cruel, FreeBird, but yeah, my free pass is up, Butter Bovine!
My eyes skipped over the entire definition of "w*rk" but I perked up at "w*rks":

Informal. The full range of possibilities; everything. Used with the: ordered a pizza with the works.

Heeheeeheeeee...
However, numbers 6, 7,and 8 at the link for "w*rk" have a lot of potential during FIRE.

My brain does not create artistically, though. It analyzes.

My DW retired at the end of June. She hasn't had much trouble during the summer, as she is normally off then, but yesterday was real hard as that's the day the little kids came back to her school this year. So today she had lunch with all her old compatriots and they told tall tales. She is not overly thrilled with my going to work every day and I think that will become a bigger issue by Spring. I don't have a definitive full retirement date, but I'll be surprised if I work past next June. Maybe sooner if I get a lot of crap at the office.

Our basic lifetsyle wouldn't change much, but the 50% reduction in disposable income will cut out many, if not all, the frills. Good bye Nordstroms, hello Wal Mart.
