Obesity is really widespread.
Joseph O. Kern II
I’m starting to feel a little better. My head has cleared and I feel like I can actually get out of bed today and do a few things/
On a sadder note another of my retiree friends died this week. I was too sick to go to his showing but I was there in spirit. I’ve been retired for a year and a half after working 37 years at UPS. I retired young at 55 but most stay longer. Once they retire many die within five years. The plan is to get myself as healthy as I can and milk that pension plan for forty years or more. We’ll see.
It’s funny, here I am a retiree but I don’t feel old in the least. I still feel the way I’ve always felt. The only thing affected is my eyesight. I still have a full head of hair and it’s only partially gray.
I really hated my job. The long hours, the constant harassment over production, the dogs, the weather and the customers. I’m glad I’m out.
Right now it is 19 F outside with light snow and some wind. Spring will be coming soon and free from work I can become the person I’ve always known myself to be.
