When he retires….

On Saturday, we were taking a walk along a nearby lake and the subject of my retirement came up, as it often does since it is drawing closer and we are making plans.

K told me that the topic of retirement had come up at one of her quilting meetings.

One of the ladies had told her, “When he retires, you’ll get your boyfriend back.”

Another older lady commented, “We’ve been married for over six years. When we were dating all he could talk about was all the traveling we’d do. He really wanted to spend some time traveling about Europe. Now that he’s retired, though, I can’t even get him to get up out of that damned chair, much less take a trip.
