A Retirement Poem
I wrote this for someone on another forum on THS, and thought I'd share it with all you retirees and those of us who soon will be.

Even though you've just retired,
There's lots of work in store...
Fix the roof, paint the house,
And tile the bathroom floor.
The garden's overrun with weeds.
The fence has been neglected.
The tool shed's gotten out of hand.
Major clean-up's been projected.
Insulate the attic space.
Build a barbecue.
You won't have time to sit and rock.
There's too much stuff to do.
You've got a list of "Honey Do's"
But truth is, to be fair,
Your job is not to get things done,
But to STAY OUT OF SOMEONE'S HAIR!
