I retired at 56 & don't feel the need to explain anything to anyone. It's acutally fun meeting new people. When you meet new people, an old Amercian social custom, seems to dictate that one of the very first things that must be asked is "What do you do?" Meaning, "What's your JOB?" Based on that info., people assign you a status relative to theirs. When people ask me "What do you do?". I reply "Things that make me happy. How about you?"
The look on their face is priceless.
