    My dh is a retired firefighter, but keeps plenty busy with golf and poker games with the guys.

    In his defense, most of the time he has a part time job.

    I am a registered nurse and work in the home health field. I love my job, the patients are great, but hate the paperwork.

    In high school, I worked at a radio station on weekend mornings/afternoons and was a church organist for Catholic services on Saturday evenings/sunday mornings as well as a few other denominations in between (typically six services a weekend).

    After college, went to work on the Philadelphia waterfront, sinking ships, concrete pipe, and other things to build artificial reefs.

    Now, write books, help out on some tugboats with my pal once in a while for the story material as opposed to the cash. Fly small airplanes for the same reason.

    I miss the piano/keyboard instruments but due to my travel schedule I can't consistently dedicate the amount of time required to play at the level I enjoy. However, if I'm ever grounded with ten functioning digits, I'll be back to it.

No retirement for a few years, but would love to spend alot more time in Aruba, we have purchased a timeshare at the Marriott and can't wait to use it in March.

    I have been in the Travel Industry for 23 years and love it. I have traveled lots, but my favorite place is still Aruba.
    My husband at the moment is a stay home dad, with 2 jobs. 1. He lives for sports epsecially Football, coaches high school, and hopes to try and make it into the NFL. 2. He loves graphic and design, from scratch or on video, he does videos for weddings and all kinds of events, and designs business cards, websites, and so forth.
