Default New Chapter in Life! RETIREMENT!!

Starting retirement this morning sitting on a levee in a ricefield!
Was trying to make 40 years ,but 39 years, 5 months and 8 days is good enough.
Boss came to me yesterday and told me they were consolidating some jobs and wanted me to learn new systems and jobs. Told them thank you for the oppurtunity and job I had, but time for me to go. I may do some odd jobs etc , but will be at my time . More later, it is shooting time!

I am about a year into retirement and loving the freedom. Now when I go to the deer lease, I tell my wife that I will be home sometime in the next couple weeks

Congrats! Yup, looking forward at doing the same. Ideally, i would like to find a 3 day a week job doing some consulting or work for 6 months out of the year. To support my "habits" and health insurance for my wife. Be off during fishing and hunting seasons.

Now you can spend the next 39 years, 5 months and 8 days doing what YOU want.
Congratulations for making it to the finish line. Just stay busy with something.
Wish you all the best. Bless you.
I am very close, quite possible this year.

Congratulations! When I was approaching retirement, I asked an "OLD" retired friend what he had found to be the hardest thing to get used to when he first retired. He said that just remembering what day it was, and he went on to say, "just remember that the "Big" paper comes on Sunday". Good luck and you shouldn't have any trouble finding something to do and staying busy.
