Got some nice replies as my introduction to this group. Hope I will be
able to contribute. I have a few comments about your response.
To the gentleman that started two new businesses after retiring.
You didn't retire. You just shifted your responsibilities to
another area. I have met a couple of people that could never
retire. They never worked. My definition of work is doing
something when I would rather be doing something else. Their's
is doing something else when they would rather be doing what they
are doing. With one exception we neither envy nor pity the
each other. The exception is: When I come home from
a day of golf all hot, worn out, and disgusted with the game. My
wife shows no sympathy. When your group does the same thing they
get treated royally and urged not to work to hard.

To those of you that cannot find the time to goof off. My answer
is twofold. You wanted to do the chore in the first place. And
if this is incorrect you have not used my tried and true tactic of
screwing up badly every chore you are asked to do. Go to great
pains letting your wife know how hard you are trying to do it
right. You will be amazed at how quickly she decides to have
the chores done by outside pros, and how anxious she is for you
to get your butt on the golf course, or lake, or what have you.
