FRIDAY FEELING

FRIDAY FEELING

Finally, my leisure time has come
Ringing alarm clocks are now all gone
I gave forty six years to working hard
Don't work at all, except in the yard
And only occasionally, will I sleep in
Yesterday's gone, a new day begins

Funny how time just slips away
Especially when we work all day
Even though I'm fully retired
Laziness is surely not desired
I feel like it's Friday every day
Never knew it would feel this way
Grateful to receive retirement pay

9 March 2018

Congrats on your winning poem. I can relate, Curtis, though sometimes retirement feels you are working seven days a week.

Yes, Line, retirement often feels like we are working seven days a week but it's a 'good tired'. I am so grateful to enjoy good health and be able to do all that I do and still, I never seem to finish. I simply love retirement. Thanks for the congrats. It's always good to hear from you.

Thanks, Line! I have more Fridays than any day of the week. Been that way for the past 9 years since I retired. I am now looking forward to my 75th birthday this St. Patrick's Day and glad to be well enough to do what I please. I appreciate your support so very much. You help me enjoy all of my 'Fridays'!

Thank you, Charlie. I'll celebrate my 75th birthday on St. Patrick's Day. I have been fully retired for nine years and I truly love it. It gives me time to write and enjoy reading what others write. I appreciate your invaluable support.
