Congrats to you! What great timing on the severance! I was hoping I might be given an early out option this year due to budget cuts but it's looking like I'll have to work the last four months in order to earn my pension. I'll join you soon, but for now please live it up for both of us okay?

Congratulations on your retirement. I retired September 2014 at 56 and haven't looked back after the 4 month adjustment period. Stay busy and healthy.

Nice. And I thought I got lucky getting 6 months severance pay....
"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)
