Today is my last day of work. I'm retiring.

My wife Kristiina and I are taking a 2 month cruise in our old 38.

If you see EASY RIDER anchored, come by for a few cocktails.

Congrats. It's a good feeling for most. 'Come by for a few cocktails'. That might well draw a response. Will you be in the Comox area? LOL.

Congratulations. Don't be surprised if time flies a bit faster, especially when boating.

Johnny,
Enjoy your new life adventure and everything the non working schedule offers! No reason to cruise faster than hull speed now! :)

I wish you the very best.

I am not sure whether I am retired or not. I have been job hunting but got no takers so far. Maybe, that is a sign from above to leave it all to the younger generation.

Congratulations. I'm in a similar situation to Terry W in that I sold my job last June but haven’t come round to calling myself retired yet although I seem to be acting that way.

I find it a little boring,, Been a self employed canvas man for 40 yrs nothing really changed for me other than I can sleep as much as I want its still flying boating fishing for me, no different lifestyle,
The only thing changed is I cant spend like I used to
