I never thought that I would ever be answering questions about retirement. But this morning somebody asked me how I found retirement to be, and this person was looking forward to hers. Well, let me tell you that I am the last one to recommend that anybody completely retire without having a backup plan. We all need something to occupy our time.o sit and do nothing is to invite anger and resentment to come into our lives, and that is no good. Anger and resentment is the beginning of a slow death. My advice to anyone who retires is to volunteer until you find something you want to do full time, and then go for it. I don’t know anybody who is retired who did it the way I did.
