Congratulations on your retirement, Dawg! You'll love it, once you get the hang of it.

I try to stay away from inferences to age, but I have to say, I had you pictured as far from retirement age. Enjoy your time doing what you like, and I'm glad you are far, far away from Cruella. lol

Aww, thanks Cheryl! I'm not that old, but I figured i need to enjoy what I've got left! Both my parents died in their 70’s. And when my job is no longer fun and I'm burned out, it's time to go. Looking forward to reconnecting with my clay and my woodworking tools!

Oh, Vit, I just love your perspective! I truly used to love my work. Then along came Cruella and her micromanagement. I have many travel plans, along with my crafts and such. And no more painful Mondays!

You put into words exactly how I felt when I took an early retirement!

I'm so happy for you. My parents weren't very old when they passed either, and I feel so fortunate that I was able to take an early retirement. I still sub now and then but it's on my terms. lol.

One of my teachers told me I must have graduated college when I was 8 years old, as I didn't look old enough to retire. She flattered me!
