Topic: Work Week Bop

I did some calculating and I figured that I should be able to retire sometime in my 90s, but that’s okay though. By then the 90s will be the new 50s I figure.

Re: Work Week Bop

hey Jeff
It's always good to be optimistic about actually retiring..
What with the national debt and the way to long life expectancy wev'e all got now I hear retirement will be outlawed so only the bankers and govement workers can stop work..
The rest can just keep working and pay their taxes..

Re: Work Week Bop

Thanks Daddy and Ark - A co-worker of mine mentioned they were retiring last week, which got me to thinking about the subject. I have no idea when that day will come, but I know I can't see it from here...I expect to keep going for the foreseeable future, but I guess there are worse things.

Re: Work Week Bop

I'm looking forward to hearing how you play and sing this, Jeff. Are  you going to record it?

Re: Work Week Bop

Hey MaryBelle - I will eventually, but I'm mostlikely going to try it out on Zurf first. It's been a while since I've been able to attend his monthly weekend jam session, and I have a bunch of new stuff to try out there.
