A Traffic Cop with a manually operated traffic signal, Philadelphia, 1922.
I saw this old picture and thought, that might be fun for a couple hours a day when I retire. Ha!
I am retired. The only jobs I would consider at this point would be a cruise ship critic or a wine taster.
Now there's a woman after my own heart. Ha ha!!
You go girl!
I'd like to homestead. Make my place as self-sufficient as possible. That would keep me busy.
And I'd like to do some writing as well.
You could definitely make it as a writer
Thank you, Flrdsgns. :)
No doubt. I have seen a few of your posts when you get passionate about something. Ha Ha!!
With some ingenuity and the right resources that could be a lot of fun.
Yup. I've got it pretty much planned out. I have five acres and know the deer trail out back, would like some chickens and a garden. There's a lot I can make from things I can grow, salvage, and pick up cheap...and I could sell online and/or at the farmers market. :)
Wonderful, can I join you or work for you to learn all you do? I will bring my own traveling tiny house with solar panels and composting toilet.
Sure. When I get started is going to depend on a few things I'm unsure of yet. I'm shooting for spring, but realistically it may be the following spring.
Boz I hope it works well for you. Keep us all informed eh?
Sure thing, Lorraine.
I started an online business a couple years before retirement, since I semi retired from my "day job" the online business has kept me pretty busy.
Something in a library. I find them calming.
NONE ... "Retirement" means I don't have to work.
Most of the folks I know that are retired just do it to keep busy or have hobbies.
I never actually retired, just quit my full time job. lol After about a year I did work part time for a manufacturing company. I was their receptionist on Saturdays. lol One day a week was great, and it was close to home. Also when the full time gal was on vacation I would fill in for her. I stayed with it for about 3 years. Perfect part time job. lol
If I only had to to my current job a few hours a week. I wouldn’t hate it. It’s difficult and generally sucks. But I’m good at it.
Working around my small farm, pretending I'm a real farmer.
Never a doubt. :)
Little fixemup jobs.
Hmmm....i do that now:)
I like doing those as long as I have the right tools. :)
I dont get many jobs that i dont have the tools for. Which is a bummer.
I hate to shop.....except for tools. I love the hardware store.
I love Ace Hardware!!! They are smaller stores, but the people working there are great.
Use one regularly.
Just delivered a carpet cleaner back to them. If you're gonna do it yourself (i do) they have the best machines:)
I agree, we were just there this afternoon. Also they rent out tables and chairs for different occasions, which we did not too long ago.
None When I retire I won't be working, I may be volunteering but work is what I do now to save and prepare for older when I can't.
If you're retired you wouldn't have a part time job.
So it's lazyboy or nothing? 😉
If you're working you're not retired.
I suppose I should have worded it differently. How about when you retire from your career and start collecting social security? Then if you wanted something to fill your time and keep you active, would you take a part time job, or volunteer work, or take up a hobby, or just sit on the couch and wait to die?
I can't sit around and do nothing. I'd go nuts.
If it produced income I would call that semi-retired.
Works for me. :)
