10 Years Retired

My official retirement date was 10 years ago.

Happy New Year!

I am a geezer, and am going to bed soon.

Have a great new year Khan! We'll be partying hard and I expect to get to as much as 11pm. maybe. Netflix has a 3 minute countdown celebration for the kids that can be played at any time - may avail ourselves of that option.

YAY on the 10 years! We are on year 4, so happy we did it. We are just under 60, and went to bed early too.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! And Happy New Year to you, too.

Also, from your posts, Khan, I don't think you are a geezer! But it's OK to feel like one sometimes. I think we all do. I would have gone to bed early too, except the fireworks out on the street were so loud that they kept me up until 1 AM.

Happy New Year! Fully enjoying my now 6 1/2 years of retirement. Our local tavern had a 4:00 PM ball drop (complete with hats and noise makers) for us geezers.
