Congratulations! Which show room is that? Have you & Trombone Al considered a joint appearance?

Well, I've already been taken off guard by how much I enjoy my leisure time so I'd better not make any commitments about what will happen when. But leisure is fun so far.

YES!!! At least as far as working when you don't really have the financial need or desire to do so.

It only gets better when you know you don't have to work any more at all.

On a serious note, I do understand the desire to gradually taper off. I did that myself, by scheduling 4 back-to-back two week vacations with a week in between, during the last three months that I worked. It sure made my transition painless.

Congrats on only working 5 days per month come September. That still leaves you 3 weeks to travel. Sweet!

I think you will find it harder and harder to deal with encroachments to your lifestyle.

Congratulations!
