I don't think we retire. Just enter our second childhood.  :claphappy:

SWMBO keeps telling me that no matter what our age is, we all have to play.
So, I've just ordered the Lego Ideas Saturn V model and when it comes it can join my Lego London Bus, Volkswagen Beetle, Mini, Volkswagen Camper Van and Beatles Yellow Submarine.
I've also got several models in various states of build and my N gauge Thunderbird 2 (it's really 1/144th, but it's close enough).
Not to mention all the Matchbox, Hot Wheels, Corgi, Dinky and other manufacturers model cars and trucks (have an affinity for Matchbox out of all of them).

I agree with Bob. I retired 3 years ago and decided I would rebuild my layout what with having loads of free time. Still nowhere near finished. Too many jobs, visits, lunches out etc. I just donít know how I found time to go to work.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Ditto Malc.

She who must be obeyed says I am spending too much time on this forum. I love her dearly but what does she know?

I have been retired 7 years and I often wonder how I managed to work build  and display model aircraft go fishing visit heritage railways build my little? railway got airshows and sleep. Still baffled as to how I did but SWMBO reckons that's why my health is shot now Ho Humm it's been fun.

After two weeks of work and disruption, the new bathroom is finished and I have just had my first proper shower since buying this house.

The difference between the dribble of water produced by the old electric shower and the wonderful monsoon from this new (main supply) one is incredible.

Simple things  :thumbsup:
