By coincidence one of the units I previously worked with was having a meeting at that time and many of them stopped by as well. It was a really nice send-off.

Very few people "retired" from where I worked. Most just moved on to something else. Technically, I didn't retire either - I quit and move on to nothing else.

If something cannot endure laughter.... it cannot endure.
Patience is the art of concealing your impatience.
Slow and steady wins the race.
