Hi everyone,

Just a line to say that tomorrow is my last day working and am going to join the retiree crew.  I hear tell that it's not a bad club to be in.  I just turned 62 and few weeks ago and have been at the same place of work for over 43 years.  I think that's about enough.  So have a few drinks on me (or doughnuts)

Congratulations, and lucky you!!!

I'll turn 63 next week, but I'll be working for another 4 years likely. I don't mind, but I would be ready to retire anytime, if it were financially feasible for me.

Congrats and welcome to the club.  Been retired for a good number of years and I've got to say it's great when you have things to do.  Most day there's not quite enough time but since I'm on my own time, that works out just fine.  My wife retired early this year and is having a great retirement life.

Lots of time to play your Larrivee now

With the same company since 19?  That’s impressive in itself.  Congrats.

Congratulations, and here's to a long, healthy and happy next phase of life!!! 
My wife and I love retirement. I bought myself a Larrivee mandolin as a retirement present and play it pretty close to every day, and weekly in a committed trio of fellow retirees. keep movin' and don't let the rust settle in!

Thanks all.  It was a harder choice then I would have thought, but I think I'll figure it out and be just fine.
