Thank you one and all for your kind words and support during this significant life change. WHAHOO! What a feeling! One week down and not much to show for it...retirement is great! Still feels like vacation but without the constant work movie going on in your head in the backround.
On a more serious note....a former cell mate sent me an email advising that one more senior manager has bailed and went to work for the competition. The department is truly in deep doo doo with 60% of the key department mangement gone and no replacements in sight. Sure am glad I am not there holding the bag anymore. I feel for those left behind but I also enjoy viewing this mess from a distance.
Work? I don't have time to work....I'm retired.
WoW....what an outpouring of positive vibes...I really appreciate it.
My boss was here all day yesterday and kept me here until after 6PM last night.
He is gone today and my "exit" interview is scheduled in a couple of hours. I am erasing the final group of files from the PC and deleting emails. The boxes are loaded on the cart and are ready to move to the car.
As Audrey1 noted: I have changed my tag line and also my avatar. The little guy is now sporting a smile, has a new shirt (ER) and has had the corporate screw removed. He is a happy camper now.
More to follow...........
That's great! Let's hope that is it and there's no turning back. Have fun with your RV adventure.
