Congratulations. I have 75 days. I have a hard time imagining the feelings walking out for the last time will generate. Vegas is a great place to begin the journey. Hope you are having blast...and losing a few bucks, we need it.

Thanks for the congratulations everyone!

Spent the first day just getting acclimated and reacquainting myself with my wife after two weeks.

My car is supposed to arrive sometime tomorrow (Friday). On the off chance that it doesn't, I went on line earlier today and ordered groceries from Vons (Safeway) to be delivered tomorrow morning so that we have food in the house.

Still unwinding after a hectic last few days at the office, but looking foreward to many happy years of retirement and living the good life in Las Vegas.
