Bob and Lee McLaird are technically retired, but they aren't letting that stop them.
For them, retirement means just "tired again" and they're proving that in a big way.
Between remodeling their new house and actively participating in their church, the married couple of 39 years are enrolled in an Early American Horror class at BGSU.
"If I could afford it, I would have been a professional student," said Bob, 70. "I'm not working toward a degree - I'm just having fun."
However, earning degrees is nothing new to the couple.
Lee has undergraduate degrees in Library Science and English and a Master's degree in Library Science from the University of South Dakota.

ROSSFORD - After a group interview of applicants, the City Council voted 5-1 to have former school board president Joseph "Moe" Minarcin join their ranks Monday.
Minarcin was one of five residents seeing to fill the vacancy created by the Thanksgiving Day death of Chuck Duricek, who had just been elected to a third term in November.
Among those seeking the seat on city council were Duricek's widow, Pam Domalski-Duricek and the two losing candidates from the November council election, Robert Densic and Dennis Foy. Densic came in fifth in the six-candidate race for four sets in November.
Retired Dana Corporation president and chief operating officer William Carroll was the fifth candidate.
Council interviewed the panel of applicants for about 90 minutes, covering a range of topics including nuisance properties, development of the Crossroads area of town, revitalizing downtown and the role of grants in city finances.
While many of the questions elicited similar responses from the candidates - all thought economic development was the most important issue facing the city - there were some pointed queries.
Councilman Jerry Staczek asked Carroll if he thought his position with the Toledo Lucas County Port Authority posed a conflict of interest.

PEMBERVILLE - The spirit of Christmas is alive inside many houses in Wood County, but perhaps none more so than Denise Carpenter's home on Devil's Hole Road.
Carpenter is admittedly more than a little bit crazy about Christmas villages, to the extent that she has allowed the fanciful creations to fill much of her historic farmhouse.
"I have just about every kind of village," from Department 56 on down, "but they're all period pieces from the horse-and-buggy era."
She got started with the hobby more than 30 years ago, when she and her husband "moved into this 100-year-old farmhouse."
Carpenter, who was born and raised in Dunbridge, noted that she's never lived more than a four-mile radius from where she does today.

TONTOGANY – Four Wood County school districts will be among seven to share in a $855,000 state grant to improve technology use in the classroom.
The grant was celebrated this morning with an event held in the Otsego Schools auditorium.
“I’m here just to congratulate and celebrate,” said Ohio Schools Superintendent Richard Ross, during his remarks.
Otsego, Perrysburg, Eastwood, Rossford, Springfield, Maumee and Anthony Wayne districts filed a joint application to the state’s Straight A Innovation Fund for a grant to replace traditional textbooks with electronic resources that the districts will design jointly.
The Ohio Controlling Board met Monday afternoon and approved the application by a unanimous vote.
The grant amounts to a total of $855,583.
“This is a customized proposal that’s been brought by the folks in these school districts,” said Ross.
