So true! Part of the adventure is the uncertainty and risk of it all.

I'm looking at next July to retire. '64 and out the door!' I've got to quit checking the calendar every day, it's reminds me of watching the clock in the 5th grade waiting for recess.

Well, today is my last day. I have my exit interview and then I'm done. We're going out to celebrate tomorrow night with a nice dinner and a cocktail or two.

I spent this week getting my projects in order and really tried to be conscientious about not leaving things in disarray. I am leaving on good terms but maybe more importantly, I'm leaving on my terms. Some people have not been that fortunate.

So I'm looking forward to the next adventure. I'm taking the next little while to get a few nagging health issues fixed and then we'll be relocating to the Las Vegas/Henderson area in the spring. That should be great, with no more cold winters, and a lot of things to do.

Newly retired myself. What I love the most, so far, is not dreading Monday morning, which always weighed me down emotionally by Sunday afternoon into the evening. I also love being able to treat a Tuesday night as though it were a Saturday night! If there is something fun to do on any week night I can enjoy it without worrying about waking up at 6 a.m. the next morning! That has been wonderful.

Congrats Camaro5
Enjoy the rest of your life.

I'm in the 1 year more syndrome
Life gave me a hard knock 2 1/2 years ago, took until now to come back.
Flexible plan is to pull the plug 2nd half of 2017.

Company doesn't really know, I'm friends with my boss and I told him, he said he would keep it quiet until I'm ready
Company is changing now, so it's time.
