But by all means, look forward to the freedom, peace and tranquility.
Glad I could tickle your funny bone . I expect the same here. Either case, on the day, I'm outta here!

That is so funny, I retired in Jan, gave my employer 90 days notice because I was so worried about having time for them to hire my replacement and for me to train for 2 mos. It turns out that I was the one that was worried, not them. My replacement came 3 weeks before I left and was on her own.. Oh well
