    Congrats! If you don't mind me asking, what have you got in mind to do with all your spare time now?

    Congratulations on your well deserved retirement. 45 years at the same job is unheard of today, and enjoying it is even rarer !

    Congratulations! I retired almost 3 years ago at 55 with 37 1/2 years working for the Army, started at 18 right out of high school. Had people tell me the usual stuff like "You are too young to retire!" "You are going to be bored, don't do it" This turned out to be nonsense, I met my best friend there and we have been together for many years and both of us are retired now and busier than ever. It would be easy to keep working but sometimes you have to know when to get off the ride. Now I have the time to work on my Road Runner.....

    Good LucK and Enjoy

      That is a bad ass Charger!

      Enjoy your retirement.

      By my calculations I can retire in 5.5 years when I get my 30 years in with my present employer (at age 57) and I don't really plan to work 30 years and one day.

      I did tell them I'd train my replacement, though.

      I've heard people say "I wouldn't know what to do if I retired at that early age".

      Trust me I've got plenty I can do, and on my own schedule, not on someone else's.

          There is always something to do or needs fixing. I don't go to it, it comes to me. Today I'm going shopping and look for stuff I don't need, I love it, but it requires money to have a free new life style.

            Good for you. Enjoy. I always think about retiring. After all the chemicals I sprayed managing commercial vineyards I hope I live long enough to do so...
