Do your customers make appointments or just show up.  Don't guess that would be a problem if you were there pretty much there all the time.  I do like meeting new people, but I am not ready to be tied down all the time.  Today is my first day at being retired you see.   ;) Banjo

Since retiring a couple of years ago I'm pretty much home all the time. I also go by appointments only. I find it's a change from work and not being around a lot of people anymore. What's good about now is you get to meet a lot of like minded people and new friends. As said they take it or leave it at set price. Some days it's quiet but by the end of the day I might have $100 or more in my pocket. Beats going out to work.
Congratulations on retiring but there's really no such thing. Just a change in a good way. 8)

Not meaning to steal Bruno's thread, but I have worked harder these first two days than I would have at MDOT.  Yesterday I went with a friend to Guntersville Al. and moved a load of furniture out of a house that he is going to rent, and today I started putting pine boards on the walls in our garage.  Like Tin Horse said just change in a good way.  At least I don't have to alarm the clock.  Banjo

Another good day at the mill yard
Had 8 customers today at Big Meadow Sawmill from 8:00 to noon.
One was waiting when I pulled in from picking up my helpers  :)
I think it's going to be a good year.
