It's been one month since I retired.

“Retirement is not the end of the road. It is the beginning of the open highway.”  – Author Unknown

So far, it seems like I've been on an extended summer holiday. I've been able to devote more time to our cat rescue. This summer has been extremely busy with kittens. It's so overwhelming that some days I wish I was back working again. But, I've been able to catch up on a few things (besides, yard work and the daily mundane chores). I've been able to start inventorying my card collection so I can see what I have. I've also made some trades and sold a few things. One thing that will stay with me is my retirement gift. Yeah, no watch for me. Since I was known as a hockey fan (read Leafs fan) and autograph collector, they thought this would be an appropriate gift.

Framed 100 Greatest Leafs poster signed by Killer, The China Wall and Ronnie the Robot. It's now hanging in the man cave. This was a big surprise and was touched by the sentiment and thoughtfulness of the gift. Now for one of the other perks to kick in. Nap time in the afternoon.
