Well stated!!!

We both enjoy retirement because we can do WHAT we want, HOW we want and WHEN we want, totally free of any need to follow others' orders, instructions or directions.

Freedom is what it's all about for us, having already had our "professional" careers and being no longer desirous of pursuing those -- or any other new ones.

Yes, we have to watch our money a bit, but a lot is common sense, too. Regardless, we DO eat out a lot (usually at noon, when the day's "big meal" is cheaper) because we ENJOY that, and retiring is intended to allow you to ENJOY your life, we think!

I/we think the biggest problem facing MANY people is simply the inability to stop being lemmings (doing whateveryone else urges them to do) and start thinking for themselves, and doing what THEY want to do -- if they have any idea what that is!

My two cents.
