I've told my wife that I don't plan to retire until well into my 70s, if not 80s. That's the beauty of achieving tenure: they can't get rid of you. I may slow down and go to work, say 3 instead of 5 days a week, but we'll see. I just got this faculty position last summer, and I'm having a lot of fun, although preparing class can be a tough slog. My take on retirement is that those fortunate enough to enjoy their careers have less incentive to stop, and if they keep at it, they tend to stay mentally alert late in life, which probably also entails being healthier. You often see it with profs, MDs, and professional musicians, especially jazz and classical guys (although the Rolling Stones are also getting up there...). Edit: great native Montrealer Oscar Peterson kept going his whole life (until, what, 82?).

Yeah, just build our bridges a little bit stronger. Also, the Turcot exchanger look like it's falling apart, can you fix that, that would be awesome.

Superintendent for a provincial gov't department.

Wow, we have to have the smartest people on this board, i can see the same question asked on the Bruins board.

Homeless, pick bottles and clean out sidewalk cracks.

Clean up horse poop after parades.

Collect salt water, make salt, eat salt.

Rake backlanes.

Make potatoe pancake in shape of a B, glue to chest, eat after game with relish.

I'm a retired teacher. I was a French as a Second Language teacher for 34 years.

First 11 years, I taught what is called Core French in the South Porcupine/Porcupine area of Ontario, just outside of Timmins. Next 4 years, I was a primary/junior/music French Immersion teacher in Timmins, Ontario. The next 19 years, I was a French Immersion elementary school teacher in Sudbury Ontario.

I taught every level from Junior Kindergarten to grade 8. I taught everything from the 'traditional' (3R's etc.) subjects to the non-classroom subjects. That is, I was, at one time or another, a classroom teacher, a Phys Ed teacher, a music teacher, a computer tech teacher, a remedial language teacher, etc.

My last 10 years were as a Senior Kindergarten teacher - ten of the best years of my career.

I wasn't ready to retire but family health issues made it such that I had to be available 24/7 for their needs. One must do what one must do.

Right now, I'm a 'traveling' musician playing at a number of local retirement homes. It's a time to give back with what little talents that I have. I'm able to do that because the family health crises are past - now it's a 'maintenance' job, if you will. I can afford to do that because as a retired Ontario teacher, my pension is, compared to the average person, a comfortable one as long as I'm wise with the income/outgo aspects of our finances.

God hase been overly good to me, continues to be overly good and, I trust that, no matter what happens, He will always to be good.

Montreal-expat college prof in VA... me too!

With respect to retirement. I've seen faculty members remain active until their late 70s early 80s. Why not. They seem happy. I'll start with getting tenure
