    Congratulations ...
    I retired the end of June ... 2005

    Two years have just flown by...

    Get up when you want to
    Go where you want to
    Go what you want ... not what the BOSS wants ... it is great.

    ENJOY ... :D

    Congratulations, I am hoping to retire at the end of this year. If had not been for my wife insisting, some years ago, that I get a "real job" with the City of Austin (I worked as a mechanic, on race cars and sold speed equipment) I would probably never have been this close. The only thing you got from most of the places I worked, before becoming a public employee, was a kick in the ass on the way out. (Gov. job is boring as hell and lots of petty BS but has good benefits and retirement)

    Congratulations, I did it three years ago. The only down side to retirement, you can't get a day off.

    Any bets on which two he can handle? LOL
  16. Congratulations!

    I retired four years ago after 26 years in law enforcement...on call 24/7 for most of it...officiated at about 1,500 death scenes.

    I've since learned why retirees always look younger within a year. It's the result of going from living from one bad thing to the next, as is the case in many workplaces, to living from good thing to good thing.

    I tell folks that being retired means you can wake up with diarrhea and know it's still gonna be a good day.
