My third year of retirement is complete
With the economy the way it is, with the hardships so many people face, I am a little reluctant to post this blog entry. August 3, 2007 was my last day of gainful employment and there are no regrets; early retirement has been great although life still is often surprisingly hectic. There is always plenty of work to fill each day, along with more than adequate periods of recreation and rest. Financially I have been very fortunate, my budget has worked well and I have more money now than I did three years ago, in spite of the great-recession. There is always a chance that something will go wrong; click here for a sobering article on the crisis of middle-class America.

Once again, thanks for stopping by.
