Happy New Year!

I haven't done too much posting lately but I have been reading several posts.

Hope the new year is a good one for you. I've already signed up for a couple week-long tours in 2013 so I'm still riding the bike....now if it would just warm up a little here in Ohio.

Happy new year Beverley and all the other 50+ members.

Now where's the bike and the mates that said they would be round early?

Sweet! I can't wait for retirement so I have enough 'vacation' (52 weeks) and can do multiple week-long tours. ;-) Happy New Year!

HNY to you all. No, let's go with Blessed New Year. It would be so much better than just "happy".

Hopefully in Boston, if not elsewhere as well.

I have a good friend, younger than I, who retired and lasted about six months. He then came to work for the same agency where I was employed. We worked well as a team for several years but when some events convinced me it was time to retire he was one of the first I told about my plans. He said I would hate it. He was dead wrong. First year of retirement has ended and it has been a great year. Four vacations (haven't figured what I am vacationing from), more time with my darling bride (we'll have seventeen years together the end of this month, nearly more than the others put together ), busy everyday. I haven't had time to hate retirement. I think the secret to retirement is doing the things you love.

Happy New Year to all the fifty-plusers who have been encouraging to me as I begin this bicycle journey. It is 41f right now and as soon as the sun gets a little higher I think I will ride a few miles.

Happy New Year.
I'd feel better about being middle aged if I knew more 100 year old people.
