Thanks Marsha
As someone who stopped being paid 15 years ago I can tell you that the absence of apaycheck is the only downside. That and being busier than you were when you had a job....
Great puzzle.

I have 20 plus years before I can retire. Hopefully my 401K doesn't make it 30 plus years.

I actually seesaw between "OMG, I only have 20 years before I can retire!" to "I have to do this for 20 more years???"

Love 'em!

Thank you for posting. After looking forward for days to taking your WP, I didn't get to after all, so thank you that I didn't miss all the fun!

I was a little surprised that you put a proper name in the puzzle (after rejecting 'men' as this sounded a little polyandrous 'Ben' was all I was left with) and is 'grands' a normal abbreviation for grandkids? Again, I'd not seen it before.

I would like to echo Barry's concerns which cost me a few moves, but the important thing is you are enjoying your retirement.

Welcome to the club.
