Just Retired!

I'm in my 2nd week of retirement and loving it! I now have the time to do all things I didn't before or was too tired to do after work. Joining irv2 was on the list! Hope to make a lot of new friends here and learn a lot too.

Congratulations and just wait, pretty soon (if you're lucky) you'll have so much to do you'll wonder how you'll find the time to do it all

Hi Patricia,

C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S !!!

Hope you enjoy retirement.

In less than three weeks, I'll celebrate my first anniversary of retirement.

Tomorrow morning, my wife & I will make our turn toward home after enjoying three months on the road in our motorhome (9,500 miles down, 3,100 to go). NEVER had time to do something like this before retirement. It's been GREAT, so far.

Take care,
Stu
