If that is what you enjoy and never had time to do those things, then yes, that's my definition of TO something. I think the saddest people are those who retire on a Friday, then get up Monday morning and start wondering what they are going to do with the rest of their lives.

If all they do is sit in front of the TV, while "the wife" brings them breakfast/lunch/dinner...along with a few beers, it's not much of an existence. I base my opinion of having the unfortunate situation of living in a +55 community, where the average age is close to 75. I've never seen so many miserable, bitter, angry people. And lordy, could they take a shower, wash their hair and put on some decent clean clothes.

To retire TO something I believe means finally having the time to pursue hobbies & activities that you never had the time to devout all your energies too. Whether that be a sport, taking adult education classes on subjects of interest, gardening, reading, volunteer work...OK, you get my point.

And finally, rant over.
