Let me add my congrats, you won't regret it.

Let me be a bit bewildered?

Surely you can quit whenever you want, neither mega-corp nor mega-government owns you.

Well done!

I think Ha might be right about the extra adjustment of returning to the US. I remember doing that twice, and it was a cultural adjustment both times; especially the first time, which was pre-Internet and cell phone.

Looking forward to hearing about your transition.

Rambler, congratulations on your upcoming retirement. And, uh, umm, aren't you too young to retire? What will you do with your time? Aren't you afraid of being bored? Well, I guess it's your life, so Good Luck (and congratulations once again).
