Couldn't agree more. 56 is the new 26!! (guess how old I am )

Congratulations on pulling the Corporate plug.

So, how did it go?

We hope congratulations for you and envy from those of us who have not pulled the plug yet are still in order.

If there's one thing in my life that's missing; It's the time I spend alone
Sailing on the cool and bright clear waters; There's lots of those friendly people
Showin me ways to go; And I never want to lose your inspiration

2. haven't plucked up the courage ...


3. Haven't squirreled away enough savings

Much as I liked my old job and my employer did ask me about returning for subK, I like my new life too much and it has been 6 months. Not sure what will bring me back to work even on part time basis. Beryl, enjoy your retirement life!
