I retired as a Private Equity Portfolio Manager at the end of October 1995 when I was 51. Shortly after I retired, I was bored so I started taking classes at a local Community College mostly for Fun - even though I earned a MS in Finance & Economics from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1976. Also, I started doing essentially Full-Time Volunteer work with my time split between four volunteer activities: A Medical Center, A Rehabilitation Institute, a local Homeless to Work program, and SCORE, Free Business consulting (http://www.scorekc.org).

This last Fall, I became a candidate for a Paralegal Studies Certificate. The program required 33 Credit hours of Para-Legal course work. I already have 24. At the end of this term I will have 28 credits.

The best part of the deal is that the classes are Free because I pay $10 a year to be a member of the Brown & Gold Club here: http://www.jccc.edu. I could finish by May, but I will probably wait until December 2007. Then I will volunteer at my daughter's start-up Law Firm - if she wants me.
