I Be Retired!

As of 15 minutes ago, I'm retired! Now I can legally post in the Life After FIRE section.

I just called to have the tech support line disconnected, and now I'm going to go drink some more champagne!

Thanks for all your help in getting my business sold.

Re: I Be Retired!

Or... if you worked at someone else's business, you could show up in shorts and sunglasses, etc., and just chill out in the office while sipping a cool drink...

I feel like there's nothing one can say in a few short sentences that would match the occasion which involved decades of preparation, although no doubt it will take even you, who have lived those years, some serious time for it to fully sink in. Keep posting here!
