Retirement at 9pm tonight

After 36+ years as an educator just turning 60 yrs. old I am hanging up my pencil tonight for the last time. After class, staff members will be taking me out to celebrate. Nearing the last weeks, people have been jealous and envious of my position. I realize I've put the time in and it is now time to enjoy the newfound freedom. It will feel surreal but I realize it is real. It is time to celebrate!!

Congrats Shust. Did you have summers off in your "former" job? If so it will be even sweeter on the first day of school next fall, when you don't have to report for work. How do you plan to celebrate?
