"Many think they will be bored in retirement, but there can be lots of things to do through various systems. Church, clubs, friends, hobbies, all kinds of things become possible because you have time for more such activities you could never consider while you were working. So rather than make a choice now, personally I would wait a while and see how things develop for you.

Hi Paul,

I agree with you. I like living in my community, not just with a bunch of people my own age.. feels more like living, but thats just my view.

Also I took up woodworking which can be noisy at times... I suspect that would be a problem in some retirement housing situations.

I wonder if my motorcycle would be permitted??? Music too loud???

Ah well, I think I'll enjoy my home as long as I'm able ;-)

All the best,

Regards, Ken
