    10 things I decided I liked when I retired

    1. Great dress code, no more ties. t-shirt, sandals and shorts.
    2. Get up when I want, go to bed when I want.
    3. Stay in my robe until noon.
    4. Ask for every senior discount I can get. Play the 'old' card everywhere.
    5. Turn down invitations to places I don't want to go.
    6. I'm through holding my stomach in whenever a good looking girl enters.
    7. Quit worrying about the small stuff, just like the book suggests.
    8. I don't need to deal with unsatisfied customers no matter how stupid they are.
    9. Realize I have my own opinions and try not to argue with those that don't think the same way as I.
    10. The most important is I can get up and walk away from nasty, disagreeable people.

    Son_of_ Perdition,
    Those are all good thing to list. Sounds like your having fun. What I have decided is important in my retirement is to be able to play. To tease my hubby into laughing at himself, and being able to laugh again with me. Took us a long time to see that the future is ours, and we can make it as much fun as we want.

    Retirement rocks! Oddly though now that I can sleep to noon, I'm up at the crack of dawn tending virtual gardens. Chronic pain does that, damn it. Fortunately, I am finding that I actually love the wee, small hours of the morning.

    I agree with all. It is nice to be able to burn bridges if you want.Try not to make appointments unless absolutely necessary. I control my time and WHO I spend it with.

    Stay in your robe til noon? Slacker. It doesn't count unless you never take your robe off until you get back in bed again that night. That's TRUE retirement.

    What I like about retirement is that I don't need to make lists. I have become a more out-spoken character, and shave less often. Like Ina said, I try to have fun.

    After nine months since this thread went cold, we DO have a dress code of sorts, at least a list of things that do not go together for seniors. I just received my copy and thought it would be good to let you all in on it (I hope this hasn't appeared here before):

    Despite what you may have seen on the streets, the following combinations DO NOT go together and should be avoided:

    1. A nose ring and bifocals

    2. Spiked hair and bald spots

    3. A pierced tongue and dentures

    4. Miniskirts and support hose

    5. Ankle bracelets and corn pads

    6. Speedos and cellulite

    7. A belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar

    8. Unbuttoned disco shirts and a heart monitor

    9. Midriff shirts and a midriff bulge

    10. Pierced nipples that hang below the waist

    11. Bikinis and liver spots

    12. Short shorts and varicose veins

    13. In-line skates and a walker

    And the ultimate 'Bad Taste' in fashion:

    14. A thong and Depends

    Please keep these basic guidelines foremost in your mind when you shop.

    Is a skateboard and a cane ok? How about a bicycle and a hemorrhoid cushion? A head tattoo and a comb-over?

    Can I store my spare keys on my nose ring? Use ddepends as pads when I rollerblade?
