    No luck involved. I worked for 50 years. Two pensions and social security.

    As with Element99, money's not the problem, it's the wife. I've got a list a yard long, assuming I healthily outlive her.

    The proverbial "Honeydew" list.   ;-)

    My "honey do' list is pretty short, as my right side is useless. I hope it doesn't become a 'money do' list. Then my answer to Ritesh would be different.

    Sorry to hear about your right side. Injury?

    Do you refuse to have surgery, or are there no surgical options for you?  I've had two knees replaced and two basal joints (where thumb meets the wrist) replaced.  I'm like a kid again.    Well, almost.............

    The knee isn't the issue. It's pain comes from the sciatica of the right side of my back. That's where the surgery needs to be done, but the docs are very reluctant to do it as there is a high risk. The entire lower lumbar region has all of ics, isis an oses known to medicine. One doc said he wouldn't even try it.

    Primarily, I'd spend time with my kids and fixing up my house, but I also like to have a project or two going all the time. I'd probably find myself in some sort of volunteer role somewhere or continuing my education just because I can.

    I'd work on my psychology degree. I mean who's better qualified than a person who's mental anyway. This post was edited by Zack at October 13, 2017 2:58 AM MDT

    Hours and hours of physical exercise every day to get in the best physical shape possible. 
    Getting laid. 
    Traveling all over the country and all over the world. 
    Getting laid.
    Visiting places that have been important to me throughout my life, such as the first house I remember having lived in, my elementary school, a campground from the Boy Scout days, etc. 
    Getting laid. 
    Studying linguistics, foreign languages, history, etc.
    Getting laid.
    Donating my time and talents at orphanages, retirement homes, hospitals, churches, etc.
    Getting laid.
    Oh, and getting laid.

    Isn't there anything on that list you could do right now?

    Well, Jane, I don't spend almost 24/7 doing any of it now, but if I were filthy rich (like you, for instance), I'd certainly like to idle away my time doing all of that. Presently, I'm hindered from pursuing those frats to the degree that I would like to. Oh, and if there weren't so many restraining orders from so many women hampering me too. (Sigh.). You wouldn't happen to know anything about that, would you?

    Like others, I am retired with enough money to live on comfortably. I have lost my taste for traveling, so that part of my retirement plans isn't happening. I spend time getting and staying fit and doing volunteer work. As I settle into retirement, I will have the option to pursue whatever activities that catch my interest.

    I guess we have enough we don't need to work but working has just become such a normal part of our lives we just keep going. My husband defines himself through his work and I have a very good job which leaves me time for volunteer work in the arts and hanging out w/ my husband weekends.
