    I'm retiring also. It took me 2 years to get used to the idea but now I know it's time.

    Thirty eight years and what's surprising is I'm still learning this job.

    I've been asked to teach tech classes and maybe that will be enough along with everything I've been putting off for years. Like fishing, photography, home projects, wilderness stuff. going to Scotland, my HD, etc.

    Would I do it all over again? I'm not much for making plans.
    Any advice? Ya, try planning your life.

    The whole trick is not to get lazy. Get your list of things to do and do them.

    Na, I'd do something else as I know how this turned out so if I had to do it all over I'd get bored.
    I joked one day with my wife that " You should have seen what happened on Oprah today" Not a good idea as she works all day.

    Holy crap! I'm in wholesale sales. If this is what I have to look forward to in retirement, I'm never gonna retire.
