My Last day!!!!

I walked out today into retirement, after many hugs and tears from patients, and am now officially retired. It is a new experience.

Headed to Spain next Friday. I plan to do everything I ever wanted to do since I was eight years old. 54 y/o now and going to catch up on lost times

Welcome to the "other side". Yes, there is life (and a great one) after work.

Numbers is hard

Although rare, it is possible to read something on this forum you don't agree with and simply move on with your life

Retired in 2005 at age 58, no pension

Good for you! Have a great time in Spain! I hope you get to Barcelona and to Montserrat, two of my top favorite places on this earth. Anywhere you go, I'm sure it will be a grand time. Enjoy!

Re: My Last day!!!!


Today marks our one year anniversary in retirement. You're gonna love it. Don't know where the year went. Wife and I retired on the same day. Been enjoying grandkids and leisure time. Spent less than we thought and bought more than we thought we would and have still managed to live on pension alone.
