  • Hello to all - I'm here and free at last

    Free at last, free at last. Dear Lord - I am free at last.

    Hello to all on this new board. Tomorrow I turn in my key card, employee badge and enter the realm of retirement. I have had many fine examples go before me, and many others to follow. I will try to do them proud.

    Now if I can just get through the 500 boxes sitting in the garage and house before the Queen yells "OFF WITH HIS HEAD"!

    A question for all you previously retired types - my 58th birthday isn't for a couple of weeks - is it too soon to celebrate?

      Best wishes and have to admit being a little envious. I am 61 with 4 more years to go. Glad you were able to work it out

          I guess years of eating at Taco Bell instead of Red Lobster finally paid off. Remphoto - I do empathize with you, and wish you the best.

            What took you so long? No, not about retiring, I already know about that. You "retired" Navy guys always get lost and have a hard time with directions unless it includes a port of call. Thanks for clearing up that little issue of my demise. LOL Great to see ya, and welcome to you as well Remphoto.

                  Hi Jerry:

                  May you enjoy the life of leisure. Now in those hills of Tenn, you may have to get an old aquarium and fill it with salt water, just so you do not get too homesick. Lol!

                  Those Navy Chiefs, they used to get upset with us. Where is all the ice cream and steaks? I bet those UDT guys hi-jacked the bomb elevator again. Lol.

                  Someone rigged up a fake bomb and dropped it down the marine gangway to their sleeping quarters, I bet it was those UDT guys again.

                  Enjoy your retirement. Be careful in those thar' hills.

                        Thanks for all the pleasurable reading of the comments - even yours Kit :p. And yeah - welcome to the land of fixed income. Actually pretty much no income for awhile - intend on living off some savings for a few years to keep from hitting the investments too early. BUT IT'S ALL GOOD - woke up this morning and the only thing I had to work on was a couple hundred moving boxes - but - no customer phone calls. No requests for emergency calibrations or troubleshooting. Hardest part of the day was finding the u-haul dealer to return the trailer.

                        And Mr. Parsons - look forward to having some civil discussions with you again down the road - they were enjoyable, mised the banter.

                              Jerry - Congrats again on your much deserved retirement. The longer you go the better it gets. Like some ol' Navy guy said a few years ago "Damn the torpedoes - Full steam ahead!" So get you arse in gear and get those damn Boxes i.e. Torpedoes taken care of. Take care my friend, will get down to your part of the world some time and will even buy you lunch, dinner, breakfast - whatever.

                                Jerry,
                                Welcome to the world no pay checks. Your hardest job now is learning how to stretch your meager funds to last a month instead of two weeks.

                                The next hardest job is learning how to do nothing. After 10 years I can usually get that done by noon, the rest of the day I just rest.
