I am so happy for you. I have watched your count down since joining in 2007! I hope you keep posting now that you are retired. It seems like it was easier to post at work than now.

Congratulations!!!

Congrats!

Now maybe you need to change the avatar from that "dreamy, looking to the future" impression it gives to a "celebrate today!" look?

Although we *do* love that avatar

Enjoy! And don't let anyone tell you to wipe that ear-to-ear smile off your face!

Congratulations. I've really enjoyed your level headed and always useful comments to the great variety of questions/comments that come up. Now that you'll have more time I expect you'll have so much fun in ER we may not see you as much around these parts.

Whee! I've enjoyed reading your final steps and rituals (party, turning things in, etc.) because as a self-employed type, all I did was be working one day and retired the next.
