I retired almost 2 years ago after working as a combination technician in a couple car dealership body shops for 42 years. Still very busy, but now I get to make most of the choices of how my time is spent. No longer is somebody demanding that "this goes today at 4 and that goes tomorrow by noon." I volunteer part time in 3 local community service efforts. Just about all of the time spent doing that is very enjoyable.
I spend a good amount of time on Oldgas.com, mostly working on problems and conflicts behind the scenes. I also have servers that host 33 other Web sites. Nearly 100% of the time, they run smoothly. I also design and update sites as requested. Just about finished with updates on GasGlobes.com
and PCM Magazine's site
. Another brand new petro site is in the works.
Add the normal family, travel and other activities and I actually have no "free time" so I just choose which things I need and want to do and the days fill up quickly.
