    Retirement

    Well guys and dolls, there comes a time in a mans life that you have to start taking things easier and that time has arrived for me !

    I have been earning a living since 1964 and have been working since then but I feel that the time has arrived.

    I have sold my business but I am sure I still have to keep myself busy doing something and I guess I shall still assist the new owner as best I can and I have something going on the side to otherwise keep me busy. So as far as posts go, I shall not be as active as usual but I shall still have my computer going at home and keep up to date on TFSA.

    In closing I feel I have to mention that being part of TFSA has been/will be a refreshing experience and although I have not met anybody face to face, I feel many of you are part of my family........thanks to all of you !

    I appreciate your cyber company !!!!!

    I wish you a healthy and happily active retirement, Martin. Don't be a stranger - one day some of us might get there too and could probably do with some tips
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Congratulations that is something I should work on.
    Spill the beans and tell us what you are going to be doing in retirement.
    Only stress when you can change the outcome!

    Enjoy your retirement Martin. Go on a 6 month holiday and then tell us about your new venture.
    Excellence is not a skill; its an attitude...

    Thanks guys,

    Yes, you will still see me on the forum. I am not going to disappear and shall keep you updated. Might take a few weeks to go on leave and then be back fiddling in my garage with my cars and maybe by then my new venture will be going.
