Greetings from across the pond! There are a number of retired law enforcement and prison people here, and perhaps a few ex-prisoners as well.

Congrats on your plan! We definitely have a few around here that have been in your shoes.

And hey, speaking of: what's going on with IronMike's chicken ranch--have we heard from him lately?

That good woman is the best part of your retirement plan!

I'm finishing up 30 years on my job as of 12/17/2009. I do not work in law enforcement or a prison. But I do tell everybody "I got life without parole".

Maybe there is some kind of connection here in my working life and why I like old prison movies like:

Cool Hand Luke
The Shaw-shank Redemption

Guess I'm planning my great escape

Thanks lirjo, it looks beautiful and a perfect place to RE.
I once lived in a cottage called "Grasmere"; there is one quite like it on the second website.

Sounds like a fantastic place to kick back and enjoy your days. I'm jealous. Congratulations.

According to the news today, the Lake District got 30 cm of rain in the last day or two--the most in one day ever recorded (pretty impressive when you think about how long they have been keeping records over there). Pretty soggy, that.
