I'm definitely over the speed limit - in age and energy level. I will be retiring at the end of 2018 and am looking forward to having more time for creating and sharing. Maybe after that I will have time to re-organize my dreadfully overflowing craft room!

I don't know why I've hesitated to chime in here but yep I'm eligible for this club too.

I'm a little less agile and the memory is shorter but I would not want to go back in time. Life is hard enough the first time and while I miss my kid terribly at times now that he doesn't live in the area, I'm very proud of the man he has become. besides modern technology makes connecting with him pretty darn easy these days

Add me to the club! I still work full time and I never seem to have much time to stamp. Hoping to retire in a couple years and have more time for crafts, sewing and gardening. We are a large group in the over 55 club!

I'm joining the club too - I'm 67 (but fitter and more energetic than when I retired at 58 - I'm one of the lucky ones who was able to retire a bit early because I'd worked long enough to qualify for a full pension).


Loved reading this thread and knowing how many older-than-me stampers there are - gives me inspiration to keep going for years!

Susan, I will soon be 67, too! I was also fortunate to be able to retire and collect my pension at 51. It makes life grand these days!!

Wow, Lynn, getting to retire at 51 is even better than at 58!! I agree, life is grand these days!

I shared this funny I read on FB on my FB page. It said, "The good news is I made it to the golden years. The bad news is there ain't no gold." I guess a lot of my gold got spent in my stamproom. I will have to stamp til I die, to use up all this stuff, but I will have fun working at it. LOL

How did you become more fit and energetic that you were at 58? Old inquiring minds want to know.....and follow your example!!!

My job up until I was 58 was being a librarian - a fairly sedentary occupation. Since I retired, I've been volunteering 3 days a week with therapeutic horse riding for kids with disabilities - on my feet the whole time, outdoors, walking, handling horses. Also doing more gardening, giving my dog longer walks, and going to the gym once a week. Nothing radical but just being more active!


And I think I'm more energetic because I'm fitter, but also because I feel rejuvenated by the total change in my life activities - and because I'm happier and feel more free than I've ever felt before - getting to live life how I choose and do what I want to do. Retirement is wonderful!

I'm in the above 55 crowd. I'm 61. I've been coming here since 2005.

Haven't been around much in the last couple of years. Been busy with other things.

I volunteer with the Emergency Management in my area. This keeps me pretty busy.

Plus this year we are moving to another area of Illinois. So this too has kept me busy.

I spent a good portion of my earlier married years moving around. But I have been in my present location for over 20 years, and I know that if I were to move, I would be very busy indeed. So Nancy, good luck on you move.
