I hope you find something to fill your time that you enjoy. As much as you might feel good about getting out of prepress, there will be a need for something to replace it. All that frantic thinking and problem solving will leave a void.

A lot of guys start to drink too much, and that's not a great option.

I'm actually considering buying a run down house and remodeling it and trying to flip it. The housing market is crazy around here right now. It is hard to find anything to buy. Definitely a sellers market right now.

We found a part timer guy... seems to be working ok so far.

Saw a prepress job being advertised. (company had advertised for the job about a month ago but seem to be looking again).

Pay: $15 to $33 dollars an hour.... what are they trying to say? Typo? I might think about applying but they specifically want "Heidelberg Prinect software" experience.

Is "Heidelberg Prinect software" not just a workflow like Apogee or Navigator? Or is it something very complicated that would require years of experience?

No but if you decide to get another job when you retire there are limits to how much you can make before they start docking your SS.

If you retire at your full regiment age, you can work as many hours as you want with no penalty, that's what I'm doing now.
I set up my SS when I hit 66 (full retirement age), I still work over 40 hours a week and get my almost $2500 a month in SS.
If you wait longer than your full retirement age to get your SS, you are just throwing money away.
My wife quit her teaching gig in 2020 right when shit was blowing up, and with my SS and her bit of SS (benefits) along with me working still, we actually got a raise in income. WOOHOO!

At least here in Tejas.

I sent my brother this awesome house near where I live. (I'm trying to get him out of Chicago) It listed at $455,000. 4 days later the price increased $95,000 to $550,000 and they are still accepting backup offers. Today is day 9 on the market. It's insane out here in NW Indiana with the bidding wars.
Rampage 11.1 • Preps 5.32 • Fuji Film Sabre P-9600 CTP Platesetter with inline FLP 1260 processor • Rampage •  ManRoland PECOM using CIP3 data • HP DesignJet 5500 42" 6/C • Epson Stylus Pro 9880 • Xerox Docucolor 8000 with Fiery • Mutoh ValueJet 1604 • Océ Arizona 250 GT • Océ Arizona 365 GT • Onyx Production House/THRIVE • ManRoland 700 5/c + coat and 2/3 perfect • and a coupla' Heidelbergs and other stuff

Yeah smart thing is to list your house at a low price which encourages a bidding war.

So I'll probably drop dead during my first week of retirement. I think they plan it that way.

Get yourself a couple of fishing rods, a small tinny and go fishing, best way to destress that I know of.
If you don't like my comment, ignore it. If you don't know how to ignore it, message me and I will be only too happy to demonstrate how.

Yeah, not a lot of ice or waves around my parts. If the lake gets choppy above a 9" swell we go home :lmao:

And January for us is 40ºC plus, that's 104º Fahrenheit for you guys.

Water temp around that time of year is 20ºC (68ºF), we spend a fair bit of time both in and out of the boat while sitting in the middle of the lake
