February 2006


Retirement is an interesting experience. Not having to go to work every day has been such a change. There are some things about it I like very much like the freedom to do whatever I want with no one expecting anything and no one looking over my shoulder.
I just put in my application for the Old Age Pension. It will start on my birthday. What a treat it seems to be paid for just existing. Very nice indeed.
Yet I miss people now. I am starting to consider what I might do to be part of the human race. So many folks need volunteers. But I'm not quite ready yet to make a commitment.
In the meantime, I have been exploring things I have wanted to do for a long time.
The first thing I did once retired was to get a digital camera. I always wanted one. This was my big splurge. In the end I got a digital Video Camcorder.
