In just three days, it will be my last day of being a teacher. Final exams are the next two days and then close out on Wednesday. But, unlike other summers in the past, there will be no going back for me.

I am told by retired friends that I will have less time than I have had in the past. It seems they are always busy and time moves faster. I certainly hope this is true, well at least the busy part, and not so much the time flying by part.

What am I going to do is the number one question people have been asking me for the past six-months since I announced my retirement. The first thing is to relax. Maybe I won't lie awake wondering how I am going to get this student to pass, when they do nothing but sit there. At least that problem won't exist for me anymore.

I will still have my hobby of Amateur Radio and the capability of talking around the world. I have three novels that I have neglected for the past year, that are waiting for me to edit them and try to sell to a publisher. I hope to get these done sometime in the near future. I was asked about editing a journal publication, so I will investigate that more.

And of course, I get to drive my wife nuts by being home every day. I am sure she will find something for me to do. There are several repairs around the house that need to be done, so that will keep me busy.

Most of all, I hope to live. With the less stress of fighting students who don't want to do the work and the pressure of having to pass all students gone, I hope to extend my life to a ripe old age (excuse the old cliché).

To all the students I have had in the past, thanks for the memories.

Dreamer's Paradise
 


 
Posted By John Poindexter

Today, May 8th marks the 46th anniversary for my lovely bride and me. I hope we still have many years to go.

June is approaching, just not fast enough. Still have 18 working days and three weeks calendar wise to go before retirement.

It seems that now that I am planning on not working anymore, more and more things are breaking down. This is causing us to spend more money to fix things than we had planned to do with our money. I have not been able to do the work that we need to get done. It will have to wait until I am not working for it to happen now.

I still have not worked on the novel lately. Just seems there is never a good time to sit and down write.  Hopefully, when summer comes there will be time for that to happen. It sure is not going to write itself.

Okay, what is going on in your world?  Any summer plans yet?

Leave a message below and let us all know what your plans are. 

Not much else to say right now, as I must go and see about the steaks we are having for our dinner.

See you next time,
John
