The week I retired, 3 months ago, my closing in on 90 mother sent me a Sudoku book and told me to do one a day. I don't remember where I put it though.

When my mother turned 89 she had to move into my house and she has been here over 4 years. Taking care of her is my retirement job.

Hi: All... I can't remember who told me this... but here's your life line.
Born---------------------------------Retired/good health-----poor health---------Died.
The prospect is I'm entering the short end of the line. I think camping/traveling is the good health life preserver. Alf

Thoughts on retirement:

Men do not quit playing because they grow old; they grow old because they quit playing. Oliver Wendell Holmes

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles. Doug Larson

The trouble with retirement is that you never get a day off. Abe Lemons

There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want. Bill Watterson

She is a very fortunate Mom. And what a wonderful son.

It reminds me of signs on the road someone posted something like these:
First sign: Senior Center, This Way.
Second sign: Senior Center, Don't Forget to Turn!
Third sign: Senior Center, Wake Up!
Fourth sign: Senior Center, Turn Here!
