    Yeah retirement is not all fun and games.
    I too have the "collection" syndrome, and have a new Fiat 500 to play with,
    two horses that need riding more,
    and a new bunch of wood working stuff that I have just begun to try to understand and use.

    I have built some new cabinets for the new tools, a new stand for my endurance saddle,
    a mantle and fireplace surround for a friend, and am contemplating new cabinets for the kitchen.
    THAT, will take some doing, as I have to convince "The Keeper Of The Coins Of The Realm"!!
    SHE says I have too many tools, and we all know that is NOT possible!! LOL!

    I also snuck in some new air tools, and have to learn the ins and outs of using them.
    There is the planting of the vegetables, the flowers, and of course the mowing of lawns,
    the disposal of LOTS f horse manure, the cleaning of all three trailers and 4 vehicles.
    Then there is the house work, since I am now a "House Husband". I already do the cooking,
    so I may HAVE to make your chili!
    Do you make corn bread with your chili, or tortillas and salad?
    Ooops have to go make some effort to wash the dinner dishes, and then I can have
    a nice "Tall One", so with that, I'll say;
    Adios Amigos

    Retirement? = lots of free time.

    You work more but don't get paid for it.

    Before when I worked full-time I would get tired, now that I'm retired I'm just that sometimes........re-tired.

    Thanks,

    I'm still wondering how the chili turned out, been checking once every few months for 8 years now.

    I'm sure the chili needed time to season. Patience!

    MMMMMM... Chili on a cold night!!
    With extra cheese and corn.
    Chili is a staple of off road campouts, and can really put some lead in your pencil.
