Congrats Martha!! Does that mean we can't ask for your legal opinion any more?

What?? You mean you're still "kinda" working ?? That means you are not really retired yet. I will not offer congratulations until you have pulled the plug completely!

Re: September 19, a good day to retire

In my embarrassment, to clarify, if one were to retire, Talk Like a Pirate Day is as good a day as any. But I didn't retire. Still plugging along part time. Very part time. I probably will work about 600 hours this year, doing work I enjoy for clients I like. So work right now is not a bad thing. Right now I am on an extended vacation, but will be back at work in October.

Martha's a semi-retired pirate lawyer, only pillaging a few towns billing a few hours a year now. :
