Retirement isn’t actually anything like what I had expected.
I did end up in the section that my wife & I desired to live when both of us retired. It’s just pretty unlucky that she couldn’t join me. A few years prior to my retirement, she died pretty fast. It was a terrible situation. But, I carried on the way that I hoped she would expect me to. Right before I retired, I got a big, female Lab. The two of us are great together. Next, I sold the property & got a small bungalow near where both of us had planned to have a retirement property. From there it’s been quite a few adventures. The latest adventure has been an introduction to cannabis strains. Where I live now, recreational marijuana is entirely legal. Anyone of legal age can actually head into the local cannabis spot to find the cannabis products of their desires. I started doing daytime yoga & one of the older gentlemen there invited me to join him on a shopping trip to the cannabis dispensary. Of course I went because I essentially say yes to life at this point. He helped me go with some sativa strains he expected would suit me. I was happy to have him guide me as I really had no idea in the slightest what I was doing. Then both of us went back to my property, enjoyed the sativa strain & cooked a pretty enjoyable meal. It was one of the most fabulous experiences of my entire life. That trip to the marijuana dispensary is one that I want to do regularly.
