    And this is it

    After 39 years, this is it. And this is about how hard I'll be working today too!


    I'll have more time now to go camping and riding. I think I'll blend right in.

    Are you retiring ??? Retirement can be a wonderful time, if you have sufficient health, sufficient wealth, energy and curiosity....it is your time to indulge yourself without so much guilt.... Congratulations...

    My first boss told me that " the same people that loved work will love retirement.....and unfortunately the reverse is also true ".

    I had to quit golf after I retired because I didn't have enough time to be any good at it.

    Yes to all of those things you stated. Except the golf thing. Never really got into pasture pool. Funny, the new Admiral's Global Fleet Headquarters is located very close to a golf course. It looks pretty!

    Today also is my last day. Everyone keeps asking me what I'm going to do. If there is not enough on my list I am shure the wife will add to it.

    When they ask you what you're going to be doing, tell them you can now devote most of your time to your love of painting (not the house) and writing poetry which you do dearly love. I think that might silence them!

    I have found that my admiration for the backcountry has become a obsession..... and I am in the backcountry every day, except when the wind is greater than 35 mph.

    My doctor told me that the best thing you can do for your body and soul is to hike on uneven ground....it isn't calculus but it makes the mind work and can even reverse cognitive decline ….
