The garage is more or less cleaned out. Two cars in a two car garage! Who'd a thunk it?

Passive income? You mean. like money that appears without one o them jerbs? Yup. I got that. No pension or gigacorporate benefits for this retiree. Retiring was identical to quitting, except management treated me nicer. (And I still get calls on some things from time to time. Heck, I filed another patent last year!)

Income is almost entirely from investments, via the usual interest, dividends, and realized capital gains.
