I worked forty-five years for someone else

So that I could retire.

I dreamed of sleeping late

And sitting by the fire.

I dreamed of long vacations,

Enjoying stage and song.

But, the rest of it had a mind of its own

And this is how it goes.

My wife had been thinking of retirement

And had plans of her own.

We sold our cattle and horses

So we wouldn't have that chore.

I poured concrete over my alarm clock

But, I still wake up at four.

Ann gets hers checked the next day.

And pass my wife going the other way.

3_2_103.gif I have a dental appointment on Thursday,

Ann goes for a test on her heart.

12_5_23.gif Friday we go get prescriptions filled

And browse a while at Walmart.

7_1_102.gif Saturdays we just stay home 12_1_128.gif

And try to get the paper work right.

We can't take any overnight trip

'Cause we can't see to drive at night.

And we really do hate that.

There's nothing wrong with the restrooms,

We just can't remember where they're at.

We don't need to plan next week,

Just make sure we can drive.

And not forget where the hospitals and clinics are.

We'll need them to survive.

So, don't build your castles too high, my friend,

While strolling through the clover.

This is a typical week in retirement

And on Monday we start all over!

KarenG: I have a sign over my desk. It states "Just when I finally got my head together, my body starts falling apart". Girl, I relate!
