What do other retired folks like (and dislike)?

In no particular order my likes/dislikes:

- Mass on weekends
- The morning paper
- The gym
- People that show off at the gym (i.e.: my water bottle is bigger than your water bottle)
- Volunteering
- Stupid people where I volunteer (i.e.: come to hospital with absolutely no idea where they are going or what doctor they are visiting or what day it is for that matter)
- Playing golf
- Slow play on the golf course. Using a cell phone while playing golf.
- Folks that don't adhere to 'cart path only' rules when it's wet on the course.
- People that back into parking spaces especially when the space is on an up ramp in a parking garage
- Amateur Radio. Licensed since 1970. Life member since early '70s.
- Working DX (315 confirmed in Logbook of the World).
- Amateur Radio contests. I'm in one right now but taking a break.
- Visiting grandkids
- Cruises
- The Texans (Season ticket holder 2002-2016) Drank enough Miller Lites tailgating to float a battleship. Now it's easier to watch them on the boob tube.
- My wife and the boys.
- The Motley Fool.
- Watching the portfolio on Fidelity.

Regards,

ImAGolfer (retired '03)
