PostSubject: I'm Retiring   Tue Oct 27, 2009 12:25 am

It's time to leave the Post Office and get out of Illinois.I've sold my house and
found a place in Northern Virginia where I intend to live "Happily ever after".
Leaving on my terms,not fired,laid off,or excessed.Kind of nice for a change.I will
be off line for a while at the end of November when we move.
I can't imagine my good fortune in getting to this point in life,I will always expect
to see a little sign on the front door that says "Checkout Time is 11:00AM". Laughing








Behind the house,2000 acre lake,no motors....I have to paddle a canoe. Shocked

But...

Will the Mrs. allow smoking in that lovely new house?

The deck makes me think you'd better buy some sweaters. Twisted Evil

I smoke in my house.She likes Latakia,says it smells like a campfire.She only
gets choked when I light up in the car.If anybody[especially her mother] complains,
they can go sit outside on the deck. Mad

That looks wonderful, congratulations! You don't have to kneel in a canoe, you can get a flat bottomed pram with a nice comfortable chair and row around all day Very Happy

Congratulations Steve. That is a beautiful place. Interestingly enough when you used the phrase "Happily Ever After" it was de ja vu "all over again" as Yogi would say as that is the name that my wife gave our property here in East Tennessee. She made a sign that is posted at the entrance that reads" Welcome to Happily EverAfter". It certainly is for us. Best wishes for a well deserved and blessed retirement.

I'm very happy for you. Pherhaps I can visit your ranch some day when work slows down. We can sip ice tea and smoke tobacco.

I have 16 years until I retire; I don't even see the end. But with the new addition to my family, I would want to work until I knew he could go off on his own.

Congratulations on your upcoming retirement! My next door neighbor gave me some good advice before I retired but I thought he was joking. He told me to get everything done that needed to be done before I retired because there wouldn't be enough time to get it done afterwards. I'll pass it along to you so you can tell others..."I told you so!" Laughing

Congratulations Winslow. I trust that you will find Dixie as welcoming and rewarding a place to call home as you could imagine. Your place looks somewhat similar to my own environment, I pray you find as much peace there as I find here!
