Day one of a new adventure

Hi. I'd like to re-introduce myself. I'm 59 & today is day one of retirement. I've been a passive member of this forum on & off for a few years. I apoligize for being a lurker but hope to contribute more now that I have more time. Thanks to all on this forum. The knowledge I've received from reading the various posts have been priceless. Thanks again.

Bison, congrats and welcome! I too was a lurker for quite a while - felt a bit guilty, but what I have learned is that with the folks on this forum, there is no judgement or guilt, only love and support. They are truly a wonderful bunch that you and I now get to be a part of! I retired exactly one month ago!
