Presuming you have enough money to see you out, sure. I'm currently working with an 80-year-old who did "retire-rehire" because she couldn't make it on her pension check (in all fairness, she's supporting a number of grandchildren) and a 68-year-old who retired after 25 years with a national company only to discover that his projected pension benefits were cut in half. So, unless I win the lottery, I'm assuming I'm in the workplace for the long haul.

That's what's happening to more and more people, I think. I'm lucky that I'm a wealthy author.

Well, duh. Of course, we're fortunate in that we're taking in more money since Jackie retired than when she was working, hard as that is to believe.

I retired in 2012...and immediately started accepting part-time teaching gigs. Not for the money (you have no idea how poorly p-t teaching pays--well, I'm sure Bill knows, as he probably hired p-t people back in his department chair days). I do it because I'm crazy.

I hope it pays better than when I was hiring. I was almost embarrassed to offer people the jobs.
