Congrats Ret. I was surprised that on both my retirements how I left no discernible ripples in the workforce pond. Within hours it was like I never existed. My ego was pinged but I came to realize that I'm not so important after all. It was a good thing for my soul. Now I look back and can't imagine being obligated to appear at some work place every day. Activities seem to multiply without my intervention. The good news is that these activities are ones I WANT to do.
Every time I start talking about the "old" days I think to myself "big deal, what have you done lately?". It puts my feet back on the ground.
Congrats, make it stick this time....

Congrats Ret...This time retire for good. Enjoy life and be safe.....
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means, that you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you......
Congrats and best wishes.
If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.
