Enjoy your newfound freedom ad the adventures of retiring and moving.
Bad on them for trying to stress you out in your last week after you'd graciously given so much notice - and good for you to say NO WAY!

Congrats OP!

The best part of retirement is not having to go to work and all that implies! May Myrtle Beach be all that you hope for be so!

So that's what the MB stands for in your User Name. I always wondered. NOW it makes sense.

Congratulations, wishing you safe travel, enjoy your new life!

I already have a place in MB and can't wait to permanently punch out of my job and move there full time in T-4 years. I hope your move and retirement transition goes well for you.

Congratulations!

After 41 years of working that last day was one of the happiest I've ever experienced and I liked my job(s).
