Remember when you were working a full-time job and things that needed fixing or upgrades were going to be fixed "when I have the time or when I can get to it?"

Well, I got a double dose of extra time, I retired in 2019, just a few months before covid, so the days "when I have the time or can get around to it" have been here for a while.

I have just about run out of things to do - I have fixed, repaired, cleaned, de-cluttered, and up-graded just about all I have the ability to do. I am down to rearranging books on the shelves and re-organizing the files on my computer. Maybe I will start organizing the kitchen drawers next.

I’ll send you my address. C’mon over!

Seriously, if you are handy and don’t mind going out maybe there are some local folks you could help out with minor repairs, projects, etc.. Check with local seniors groups, churches etc..

Yes, my wife and I live in a condo and have several elderly neighbors that I do minor repairs, errands etc. The only issue with this is that since I refuse any payment, they feel obligated to make and send me pies, cakes, and cookies. I am afraid I am going to get fat!

I guess there’s always a price to pay...even for kindness.

I've been retired for going on 22 years, and my To Do List has 45 items, and that's just indoors.
