What do you fear about retirement?

Retirement Life Begins When the Kids Move Out and the Cat Gets Run Over

Someone once said, "Life begins when the kids move out and the cat gets run over." Today, for many people that is when they reach retirement age.

Here are a few more retirement quotes, retirement sayings, and retirement jokes that I just placed on my new website The Retirement Cafe:

    Bob: Do you have a retirement plan?
    Ted: Yup, lottery tickets.
    Bob: Lottery tickets? That's it?
    Ted: Of course not. Retirment Plan B is to sue some mega-corporation for a milllon bucks.

    When the majority of people get my age, once they retire and get Social Security they lay on the couch and do nothing. The next thing you know, they're not with us any more.

    Retirees have two choices: choose the couch — or choose life.
    — Jane McBride

    For a happy day, look for something bright and beautiful in nature. Listen for a beautiful sound, speak a kind word to some person, and do something nice for someone without their knowledge.

    RETIRED: Now I have a life!

    To fear retirement is to fear life.
