As of July 5th I started down the new road of retirement after 50+ years at one company. If you see me on the water give me a shout.

Congratulations on your retirement!  In this day and age that many years with the same company is amazing.  I made it to 33 years with my first company before I got hit by downsizing.  Of course they called it "right sizing".  Worked another 8 years and then took retirement.  Took me about a year to make the adjustment from not going in to work every day.  Good luck!

Congrats Ross. I owned my own business for 46 years before pulling the plug. I love it and bet you will too!

"A year to adjust"?
You did it wrong! Took me about 5 minutes.

Never claimed to be a quick learner!  Ha! [wink]  I was only 60 (5 years ago) at the time I retired, so that may have been part of it.  I'm busy 100% of the time now, but it did take me a year or so to pick which activities I wanted to fill my time up with.  Some that I had participated in all of my life and some very new to me.  The trick for me was to find new things that I enjoyed as much as I did certain things in my old job.  Mostly were things where I could make a bad situation better because of my authority level and experience.  I wanted that same feeling, but not in the form of the daily grind of corporate life.  Then my wife was diagnosed with cancer last year and that became the new reality for us and yes I can in some ways make her/our situation better like I did in my old job, but different emotionally.  We just keep moving forward the best we can and don't spend any more time looking back than necessary. Well, that was about a year's worth of philosophy from an old fart (don't qualify for an old geezer yet). Ha! Sorry for the long reply.
