    In retirement, it is sometimes necessary to recognize the selective hearing and memory loss - that can be triggered by such words as "build", "addition", "remodel", "re-do" and by phrases such as "you know what we should do?" or my favorite "I want a sitting room", etc. Hearing and memory can shut down to varying degrees (IMO, an adaptive response) when such trigger words or phrases are first detected by the retired ear.

    I bought plans for a 26' plywood cabin cruiser years ago. Have not built it yet...

    ....but a 26' boat is a lot of work to maintain, and they do have a 21' model...

    But, I suppose a 18'er would do...

    ...oh hell with it. I'll just use the same leaky skiff I been using.

    LOL! That's funny stuff. Sometimes my alarm goes off when I think I hear "Why don't we", but since my ears are retired I'm not really sure what I heard.

    Congratulations Mike,
    I have been retired for three years and it's a great feeling. Maybe I will bump into you sometime when I'm visiting my relatives in Crescent City.

    Hey Oregon Viking, thanks. Yes I plan on doing some more prospecting in the near future. Just a few home projects to finish ��. Give me a jingle if you get down this way.

    You bet Nevada Prospector, let me know when you get this way again. Quite a difference between Nevada and the northcoast huh?

    I just got one more thing to say, not for Delnorter but a humble warning for those among us also retiring or retired-

    I used to work construction. I got out before age fifty. One one of the reasons I got out was that I discovered that the average lifespan of a union carpenter after retirement is just six years. The average for iron workers is even more dismal, a mere four years. And do you know why?

    Good post Duckshot, so very true. Also don’t spend too much time on the couch or recliner, if so, that’s where they’ll find you.
