Sassy welcome aboard the retirement cruise line!!!!!!!
Davydd, you’re just getting started. I’m approaching nine years and feel like I just retired.
For me I found quickly I needed challenges. I found those and stay quite busy. My advice is to ease into the new lifestyle, find your comfort level and remain active.
Sassy, I hope you enjoy your retirement. I have a "count up" widget on my computer. I am now 244 days into retirement. [:D]
Sassy, I am happy for you.
If you ever venture to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia,
let me know.
Now that you own your time, enjoy.
SGA, good for you; Enjoy every day of your retirement, you earned it. If you find yourself around Daytona Beach be sure to let me know. [:D]
Best wishes to you! I’ve been retired for 2 years now and am not bored yet. Not as many road trips as I’d like, but they’ll increase when my wife retires later this year.
My best advice, which came to me from a good friend, is, that when doing chores (which don’t seem as much like chores any more) remember "you can always save some for tomorrow".
When you get to Tunica, circle home through Philadelphia, MS & the Silver Star & Golden Moon. Visit Williamsville (country store owned by Eli & Peyton Manning’s family). Get some fresh sliced bacon there. Head to Peggy’s for some fried chicken and good roadfood. Go north to Mary Lou’s for a grand breakfast experience. Tour the country & enjoy every minute of your retirement.
Good Luck! Enjoy your retirement! When in Cincinnati, go to Montgomery Inn for BBQ ribs. Dessert at Graters Ice Cream
Let me know when you are in the area, maybe shar a RF experience, while you are in town.
Congrats, on your deserved rest.
While in the Atlanta area try to find some of that wonderful Ginger Ale…RED ROCK. It is worth a hunt ! Also we enjoyed the Blue and White in Tunica just a week ago. It too is worth a trip !
Welcome to the Wonderful World of Retirement!
The Mayor !
Congratulations!! In case you didn’t see it, take a look at MiamiDon’s post on the chili cheese dog thread. The only thing wrong with his photo is that I’ve never seen just one on a plate.[:D]
Congratulations! I hope you enjoy your well deserved next phase of your life. MY parents, whom retired several years ago, love retirement. They are active, travel, volunteer at the hospital and their local church, and are always planning something! I think they are more active than any of us kids.
Have a great trip to KY and GA and points in-between.
Congrats. Sounds like a good trip. Looking forward to the pics. Don’t play 20 lines at a time on those machines.
I have one more working day after today and then I process out Friday. I can’t hardly wait. After working here for 22 years and working steadily for 43 I am ready for this.
My first roadtrip will be to visit relatives in Florence, KY, and Cincinniti, OH, and get my cin. chili fix (I absolutely crave the coney dogs). Then I will visit relatives near Atlanta and hit the Varsity again since it’s been a while since I’ve been there (wada ya’have, wada ya’have?). Will visit the Coca-Cola Mus. and add to my very selative Coca-Cola collection for my kitchen.
Then onto Tunica for some gambling (got to love the nickel machines where $20 will last for hours sometimes). I want to eat at the Blue and White cafe.
I have monitored RoadFoad here at work for several years and just haven’t found the time to visit many of the places mentioned. Hopefully that will change now that retirement is here.
Wish me luck and hopefully I can meet up with some fellow roadfooders along the way.[:)]
