Congratulations!!! I'm coming up on my first retire-a-versary in a month and a half.

But.... I thought the forum rules say one can't have more than one screen name? I'm glad you found a workaround though - W2R is a lot easier.

You can have your screen name changed if there is a good reason for it (such as being called "Want2retire" and having already retired). You can't have more than one screen name at a time, though because the Community Rules say that you just can't have more than one account at a time...

Congratulations in advance for your first retire-a-versary! And stevewc, congratulations in advance for your third! Time sure flies, doesn't it.

That screen name change is good to know - perhaps someday in the long distant future if I wear diapers I'll need to change mine.

W2R,
You are so right.
Time is flying.
I am enjoying my retirement.
The freedom is really nice.
Do any of you all, have dreams ( might be considered nightmares) about things you were responsible for or worried about in your past life? Job related?
I get mad at myself when I awake and realise I don't need to worry about that junk anymore. LOL
Steve

Not very often, but once or twice. I am so glad the dreams are not real.

You retired before I joined this forum. Belated congratulations to you, W2R.

Aw, thanks everyone.

I must admit that I was never a model worker, so maybe I've found my niche in life, at last.

Excellent! Hope there are many more wonderful retirement years in your future.

Or, "pass gas-ski"

Believe it or not, until reading your post a while back explaining your screen name, I thought you were offering a Pabst (Pabst Blueribbon=PB) to everyone and you were of Scandinavian decent...Pabst-4-Uski.

I guess, then I really would have to pee before I ski.

W2R,

Congrats on your retirement anniversary. How about a trip to Pat O'Briens to celebrate with a Hurricane?
