Retirement, Be careful what you sign up for.

Retirement, Be careful what you sign up for.

Upon reaching 65, I decided to retire. After having me under foot for a
few months, my wife became very agitated with me. She suggested I go and
do something to occupy my time, like join a
club or get a hobby. I obliged and went out for a couple of hours..

When I got home my wife asked about my day and I replied, "Oh, I just
went down to the park and hung out with the guys. And oh yeah, I joined
a parachute club.

"What? Are you nuts? You're 65 years old and you're going to start
jumping out of airplanes?"

"Yeah, look I even got a membership card."

"You crazy old man, where's your glasses! This is a membership to a
Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club!"

"Oh, great! Now what am I going to do? I signed up for 5 jumps a week!"
"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me . . . Anything can happen, child. Anything can be"
