Good luck RDR - have bus pass, will travel. You should get a Senior Railcard too - good value with a third off all journeys.

My OH says exactly the same thing! (She retired at 55, lucky so'n'so) She's retired, and I still have to cook my own dinner 3 nights out of the working 5!! Something's not right …….

I've decided to do something a bit mental for cancer research. I'm going to visit every state in the USA singing and mindreading in each one to raise money.
I won't be doing it until next year as it's going to take a LOT of planning and I also have to raise money to fund it.
I'm going to be holding some charity nights this year to start things off, I already have over 30 acts willing to give their time and two venues who are willing to host us.
So, if you'd like to donate (even a pound!) or feel you could help in any way then please let me know. Donations can be made via the link below.
Any questions then don't be afraid to ask!

Mind-reading eh? So what do I think about that?
Good luck with the fundraising though.

You think it's all gash. If I met you, I'd show you. I've met plenty of people who don't believe what I do so I read their minds, they're astonished.

Thanks Sharon and everyone for the good wishes.
So far, its been a whole new chapter, just doing things I want, when I want.
Been away at the lakes, walking and along the Clyde Valley as well as to New Lanark.
Up to Callander mid week this week for walking and have a few DIY projects on the go, including building a new greenhouse.
For the future I will look for a wee part time job to supplement my pension, but at the moment enjoying myself too much to worry about that.
