We Won’t Retire and Move to Timbuktu or Other Obscure Places (Real or Not)

By H.A.R.D. Wears on March 17, 2022

Man, this morning when I woke up in Idaho it was 27 degrees and threatening to snow. The forecast showed a high of 33 and more snow. Windy and gray skies, I knew it’d be a great day to stoke the fireplace and plan some warm-weather vacations. And while I do that, I know the […]

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

By H.A.R.D. Wears on November 30, 2021

I don’t know about you, but man, there’s a briskness to the air that screams at me every morning, threatening to snow and bury my sun-lovin’ soul (and whispering that I need to travel south). Not that I don’t enjoy winter, but really, I only like it when I’m playing in it, not when I […]

All We can do is Laugh

By H.A.R.D. Wears on November 9, 2021

Okay, folks. Are you laughing now more that you’re retired, or less? We think we’re laughing more. Maybe it’s because we’ve more time on our hands. Maybe it’s because if we didn’t laugh we’d cry. Perhaps it’s because we’ve learned to take life less seriously than we did 20 years ago. We’re not sure why, […]

Create Your Own Retirement Schedule

By H.A.R.D. Wears on September 21, 2021

Before being retired, we were excited for no more schedules, more free time, and more opportunity to do what we wanted when we wanted. Man, we quickly realized that retirement did not guarantee any of that! Sure, we don’t have to get up for the grind of the work week, but we still have to […]

Reel in Good Health in Retirement

By H.A.R.D. Wears on September 7, 2021

At H.A.R.D., we relish the time we have in retirement for fishing! We know it’s not for everyone, but man, we love it! It’s something we’ve done our entire life, and being retired, we’ve made it one of our priorities.

Retirement Should Never be Boring

By H.A.R.D. Wears on August 31, 2021

ugh it’s something we work our whole career for, it tends to catch many of us by surprise. We think that as one starts the financial planning of retirement, they should also start a hobbies list that combines socializing, physical activity, creativity and personal growth opportunities.

Remember What H.A.R.D. is All About

By H.A.R.D. Wears on February 5, 2021

Well, we retirees and those in semi-retirement made it through another year and another president! Not sure where we’re headed now, but it’s great to just be along for the ride. We’re missing our travel, our adventures, our people! How about you? How are you getting along? Have you been healthy (relative, I know, considering […]

2020, Putting Things into Perspective

By H.A.R.D. Wears on January 6, 2021

Whoa, what a ride! 2020 took us (and our generation) by storm and tried to beat us down, tried to take away dreams of sandy beaches and pig roasts, holiday get-togethers and family celebrations. But boy-howdy, we are showing COVID-19 what for! Our generation has been through the ringer and back, but we persevere. We […]
