  3. Well that is sad. Some in my life work have since disappeared but great to see those still around. To me that is life what else is there friendship.
  4. Well 50 years as an architect to the day. One or two rough days but loved the rest. Meeting people. Common thought that architects sit at a drawing board all day. Now off to see client. Meet planning Officers. Argument, loved them, with building inspectors. See plumber. Meet with electrician. Visit 2 or 3 building sites a day. Air con man consultation. Meeting Structural Engineer. Boring meet with Quantity Surveyor. The a bit of design work on the drawing board. Yes great working life. Always worked as a team & had great results with help from all of the team. Miss the comradeship.
  5. Like it. Did not think of retirement as an end to part of my life. Just change with more opportunities for other things. Also even now at approaching 84 |I like to keep the brain working at it's mamximum. Although not having an activity which earns money i have revelled in learning to cook. That has brought a great interest into my life. Not sure that goes for my wife !!!!!!! Laurie
