"As much fun as golf or any other single activity may be, it won't be enough to fill an entire life"


Although I agree in principal, my folks retired with one hobby a a piece. My dad fished and my mom loved crafts, there was a slew of them, but other then from the elobow down they didn't really differ that much, needle point, plastic canvas, crochet, and a few others. They never branched out and were happier than any two people I have seen in my life. So folks is all different, a lot of other folks ended up drawn to my mother and her crafts and she ended up with an entourage of people who never intended to do this crazy stuff all making heart shaped clocks with mail slots and a place to put your keys and such. So I don't worry all that much about having a lot of hobbies. If your a person with an upbeat attitude and believe retirement is going to be good, Iam pretty sure it will be!

Personally, although I do look forward to spending years exploring our countries history and sites as well as some other stuff including staying young by finding ways to stay involved with kids I don't see a value for lists and spending my time now looking for stuff I will do later. I'm still enjoying basketball while I have knees that work!
