I seem to have retired

Better find some sort of hobby or outside interest, I suppose. But what...
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

Duck collecting has merit. You could sideline into duck racing to spice it up a bit.

I volunteer at the local library teaching kids Scratch programming and help out at the Royal Observatory doing solar observations with the Flamsteed astronomical society.
You could volunteer at a local museum.
I got talking to a volunteer at the Maritime Museum and Royal Observatory, he has a great time helping visitors plus has the chance at being involved in the backroom work visitors don't normally see.

Congrats Pat, now you can perfect the long lie in, avoiding the list of things to do, done by S.W.M.B.O and if you still have a drum kit in the garage, you can annoy the enitre neighbourhood for at least half an hour each day!
Martyn suggested you can become a duck farmer, spanish running ducks are funny, " Eee, eyup duck! " :thumbr:
