Like Ken Jones, ASA, SCGREA  I'd die of boredom. I have no idea what I would do... the thought of retirement has not crossed my mind.

I could never completely retire, unless I was physically and mentally incapable... Since I am 73 I decided last year to slow down a bit and take things at a slower pace... I've been working since the age of 17 and although I am still working, I am working at my own pace... Smelling lots of coffee and roses!

Why retire the license. As long as you have capacity and the "want to" keep it. I enjoy exploring as in hiking, biking, nature and visiting new places and the sights and meaningful exchanges. Simple is as simple does for me....

I could 'retire' now, whatever that word means . . .  friends and family have asked me on more than one occasion, and I always keep pushing that word out, years ahead . . .  Anyhow, I would be doing volunteer work that would 'possibly' turn into a job (never say never!) Fred Griffin.

I am basically retired and relocated to be closer to my son. My wife is excited with the expected arrival of our first grandchild in June. We have not had time for boredom but do miss the action from time to time.

I have many interests ... but retirement in the sense of R&R is just not who I am.  So I would probably always do "some" real estate or go into ministry, or volunteering or traveling ... or, or, or ... all of the above.

I really don't know, Fred! I continue to plan for it, financially but, just don't see myself ever retiring. I enjoy what I do too much. 

However, I may explore another one of my passions (rescuing dogs & cats) and have a vision that I hope to fulfill before I am 6' under.

My preference would be a large parcel on a lake with a veterinary clinic on-site...and more. One day I'll write about my plan so that it will come to fruition!
