This is my first post although I have browsed the board several times. There definitely is a wealth of knowledge to be had reading the posts.
I just recently "pulled the trigger" and notified my supervisor that I will be retiring at the end of the first quarter. I am 52 and have worked for a major telecommunications firm for the last 23 years. We've been through so many mergers over the last 10 years I've lost count! Needless to say every time we merge with another corporation it has been a nightmare and I am ready to go.
Hobbies include backpacking, and general aviation. I fly a Mooney and travel up and down the East coast as time permits. I look forward to spending more time enjoying my hobbies as well as my grandchildren. I also look forward to participating in this forum and learning alot about life in the ER lane.
