If I had known how difficult it is to retire I'd have started the process 10 years ago...ha
One thing I forgot to mention about Mike's birthday bash. When he asked the waitress to sing happy birthday to him and she said they couldn't. Well, we decided to sing it to him and everyone sitting within ear shot started singing too! That touched my heart and made Mike thrilled out of his socks!
There are still good people in this world!
I think I made Ron nervous as a cat last night. I started making a list of all the projects I want to complete after we retire. I could see him starting to sweat in his recliner! I was actually shocked at how many things I want to do....the list just kept growing and growing.
My idea of fun is painting bedrooms, cleaning out closets, etc. etc. Ron's is sleeping late and going to any kind of sports event known to man. I think our retirements are going to look very different.
I did find a list of 50 free things to see in Oklahoma. We plan to take Mike to as many places as we can. These are the first 10.....some of them we have already seen. We took Mike to Pop's last year for the 4th of July.
#1 - Historic Route 66 (done)
#2 - Blue Whale & Totem Pole Park
#3 - Round Barn & POPS (done)
#4 - Oklahoma City National Memorial (done)
#5 - Martin Park Nature Center
#6 - Keystone Ancient Forest
#7 - Conoco Museum
#8 - Route 66 Vintage Iron Motorcycle Museum
#9 - Oklahoma State Capitol (done)
#10 - Oklahoma Governor’s Mansion (done)
#39 - Cavanal Hill (done) This hill was in our parent's backyard. In fact our father played on Cavanal when he was a kid and wanted his ashes scattered from the top after his death.
So we have lots to see and do and I can't wait to get started!
