Really? Did you boost your spending quite a bit after retiring?

Well... Yes. As I said, more movies, more concerts, more Broadway shows. More time in the RV. More books. More time to putter in the workshop, so more projects and more trips to Home Depot. The outside of the house has been quite expensive: more shrubs, more grass seed, and we paid a guy to take down 8 trees, etc. etc.

This is all voluntary, I'm just saying with time on your hands, you can find ways to spend. You dn't have to, obviously, you can sit in front of a TV set, go to the library, walk in the park. It just hasn't worked out that way for us.
