These are amusing anecdotes about the golden years of retirement and just what to look forward to and as always it's about whether our glass is half full OR half empty because that's what is going to make the most difference.
The days will fill with lots to do
Never a minute to spare;
Time to now enjoy those things
The time is now to share.
The choices open up all round
As to what kind of day you want;
To potter round and cook yourself
or go to some fancy restaurant.

As a chapter closes in your life,
And a new one starts for you,
May your years be filled with all the things
You've been looking forward to!
I cross all bridges with joy and ease
The "old" unfolds into wonderful new experiences
My life just gets better all the time.
It's No Job, No Stress, No Pay
It's goodbye tension...hello pension
It's spending your kids inheritance
It's when work never gets a mention
Come, my friends,
'Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die.
It may be that the gulfs will wash us down:
It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,
And see the great Achilles, whom we knew.
Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved the earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
When is the right time to retire?
When you dread going to work!
Do not regret growing older it is a privelege denied to many.
Goodbye to work, you are on a high,you don't have to ask why!
You now gladly say adieu to your working life —
goodbye to toil and strife
Tomorrow, when morning comes at noon, you will lie in
bed and look up at the ceiling.
There will be no one there to give you orders
or more work — what a great feeling.
As the noon sun shines through your window,
you will hear a dog bark and the noise of someone's feet
It's the letter carrier, poor working soul, delivering
your mail, you can hear him in the street.
Within you will come a warming glow — your new life
will have just begun.
This is the day that you have looked forward to —
knowing that all your work has been done.
Shortly, you will arise, get dressed, relax —
there's still time left in the day for much merry-making.
You will make the most of it — knowing that most of your
friends are at work stressed and mentally aching.
Will there be any reason to feel any stress or guilt
at this time of your life?
Only when you forget to wake up early and make
breakfast for your poor working wife.
The time is going faster
I have so much to do;
I don't know how I found the time
To go to work -Do you?
Retirement is not for sissies
More decisions to be made;
As whilst you went to work
You did what you was bade.
So hobbies are at the fore
Bring it on you say;
I miss the companionship
Each & every day!
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts
I want to think,
all the walks I want to take, all the books
I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.
You can now live by this motto:
Didn't care yesterday.
Didn't care today.
Probably won't care tomorrow.
If you downsize to a smaller house
Truth be known, a small house can hold as much
happiness as a large one.
Sometimes it will hold even more.
