Just got my very first pension cheque and it is a lot more a month than I expected! Not only will the Beast be able to get new brakes this year, but I won't have to coast downhill in neutral to save gas. This will make steering so much easier!
I'm starting to like this retirement thing.

Well, that's it.... day one of retirement was New Year's Day. As a dramatic "first day of the rest of my life" it was sort of a non-event. I spent the day watching my friend flip through hundreds of tv channels, with the result that we never got to watch any single show. He would flip to a new channel just before commercials started, so I never got to see what the scene climax was, then he would flip back long after the show had re-started so there was no way of knowing what happened. In between channel flips, he would sleep. Ah well...
