Joining class of '16 after all!

Just got word yesterday, Megacorp is offering early out. My last day is 11/18. OK, I'm 63, so it's not real early, but I'll take it. I was planning to wait until January and see if they made another offer, so the timing on this one is pretty good. Merry Christmas to me! DW retired in May and has become an amateur travel agent, so I guess we'll be on the road for awhile. Thanks for all the great advice I've found here.

Great Timing !!!

You know, every once in a while, you square one up and drive it like a boss. Step back, admire it........and do a bat flip. You got it !!!

Good for you. This should make the season even brighter for you.

It is great to go out with some extra jingle in the pocket.

That's awesome!

Did they offer any incentive/enticement/package? If so - Merry Christmas indeed.
