Plans for Retirement

I'm indebted to Frankenkeith who has sent me this heart-warming short piece about a man enjoying his retirement. I've still got a few years to go (as few as I can get away with) before I can enjoy my own retirement - but this gives me something positive to look forward to.

"As we get older we sometimes begin to doubt our ability to "make a difference" in the world. It is at these times that our hopes are boosted by the remarkable achievements of other "seniors" who have found the courage to take on challenges that would make many of us wither. Harold Schlumberg is such a person:

"I've often been asked, 'What do you do now that you're retired?' Well...I'm fortunate to have a chemical engineering background and one of the things I enjoy most is converting beer, wine and whiskey into urine. It's rewarding, uplifting, satisfying and fulfilling. I do it every day and I really enjoy it."

I can do that too, and I don't have an engineering background. I guess I'm just naturally gifted.
