Assistance Appreciated - Retirement Themed Comics

I would appreciate your assistance. One of our Administrative Assistants is retiring from MegaCorp, and I am looking for either links to or pictures of retirement-related comics. I usually look at for my w*rk-related comics, but I did not see anything.

An alternative would be some witty retirement-related sayings or quotes.

This Administrative Assistant has been one of the 'good guys', even though she is female. She's joined some of us in our crusade to make the w*rk environment at least tolerable. She will be missed.

Thanks in advance.

PS: Since this is w*rk-related, I am looking for something that I can send via company e-mail that won't send me to my early retirement post-haste - or do I?

Well, Helen; shall we just go home?

Is that link for the ER song around here still? It goes something like this: "This is a song about my old job, and all the things I miss about it..." And that's the end.

EDIT: Ah, here it is:

REWahoo and BigMoneyJim,

Thanks for replying, those links were helpful yesterday. I completely forgot to ask the Board before having to go into w*rk yesterday morning, which was the Administrative Assistant's last day.

Judging from the first page of toons, retirement isn't considered a humorous topic. The general theme seemed to be "unwilling retirement" (i.e. downsizing or being kicked out). I don't think anyone in that position would find a cartoon about it very funny!

(I was hoping for themes along the lines of "So long, sucker--here's what you can do with this loathsome task you just gave me.")
