I guess it’s what I’m doing now. I retired from my full-time job a couple years ago, but I was very bored. Now I work part time at a knitting store, which keeps my mind moving. And I really enjoy teaching younger people how to do my favorite hobby.”

I’ve been working since I was 13 years old, and I’m still working. I’m tired. My father was retired at 65, and he got to spend the rest of his life relaxing. But I think after we get our finances shored up, I should be able to leave the workforce in a couple of years. My wife is 10 years younger than I am, so she’ll still be working, which will help. Then I can do as much fishing as I want, and she won’t be able to tease me about it.”
