several years ago before i retired i started thinking about what i want

when i retire...a roof over my head, warm in the winter, cool in the summer

food in my belly, clean drinkable water, friends to hangout with, and good

enough health to come and go when and where i want to.

i retired last june from 38 years on the grave yard shift getting hot sweaty

and filthy dirty on the factory floor.

today i had lunch with a high school friend...tomorrow is softball practice...

i am an assistant woman's softball coach...aka...pitching coach...tomorrow night

a high school basketball game between two rivals (i am an indiana boy)...wednesday

practice and wednesday night is senior buffet night at ponderosa...thursday practice...

friday late practice then late dinner with friends in a neighboring town at their

watering hole saturday...breakfast with a group of at the local

college in the afternoon...dinner with other friends saturday night...sunday breakfast

with shopping and laundry...i visit several libraries and the

local moose lodge too...and sit on several local boards too.

i am enjoying myself and hope to continue until i hear the Grim Reaper knock at the door.

none of this costs either
