I took the corporate lovely parting gift almost 7 years ago. I did 1/2 time consulting for about 5 years (mostly saying don't do that, I tried it and it hurt), but things have slowed down for the last year. I think this year will be the year I take down the shingle.

Now that DW has her new knee - today was her last day of Physical Therapy, we can get out a lot more than we did last year...once winter decides to let go. I'm thinking first trip this year will be to New Mexico to go to Trinity Site on April 6 and bum around NM for a week or so.

I didn’t plan to retire for another 5 years but the company decided otherwise. Thought about “starting over” but at 62 decided to just make the best of it and embrace the new lifestyle. Bought a bicycle and lost 40 lbs. bought the MH and never looked back. It reminds me of my college days - except I have a car, money, a steady girl, no schedule and no exams. What’s not to like?

The day I retired for the first time, I burned every tie I had too many to count.. only have two now for weddings and other occasions

Congrats to all of you that have retired!! My wife & I have truly enjoying retirement. I like working with my hands fixing up stuff that needs it. I tore our Kirby vacuum apart and fixed the switch & installed a new impeller fan. She sucks the carpets off the floor now! LOL

I knew an Air Force Chief Master Sergeant who invited friends over the day he retired. He took his alarm clock and put it inside a shoe box with a pair of his uniform pants, shirt, and his spit-shined shoes, went to the back yard where he had a hole dug and held a formal funeral service. He went back in the house and took a nap.

Congratulations.

I am a few more work days away. I will be 60 this year and is time for DW and I to have fun. I am a bit nervous about it. I guess after 40 years of working.

Congrats on your retirement. Now you will really be busy. Welcome to FL and check out the state park campgrounds as they are really nice and if you are senior enough; a really good deal.
Happy trails
