Re: now retirement

I retired from the Army in 1997. Always loved gardening and tried to "improve" the gardens in any place I was sent, but never had a lot of time to devote to it. Retirement was a reluctant choice. My spouse was ready, and I told him that once he found meaningful work I would also retire, as commuting from the east coast to "where ever" would have been a colossal pain in the ***! But I loved the Army and I loved my job, so I was not ready...
It was a good decision, though -- my blood pressure went down immediately post retirement, and one of the first things I did was enroll in the IL MG classes. Now, my DH complains that I am busier than when I was on active duty!

Wondering if those retired on the list... were you a gardener before, or is
that how you adjusted to retirement.
