 Banana Chili

As in, officially retired.  Technically not off the rolls until the end of next week; but today was my last day at work.  Gladness, some sadness, gained about 5 pounds this week from all the lunch dates; I'll keep in touch with a lot of folks.  

I showed up today wearing not the usual suit & tie, but a loud Hawaiian shirt.   Bigsmile

Congrats man- enjoy it!  At this point I still love what I do, and it will be a sad day when I throw in the towel.   There's a teacher at school going through this right now.  42 years in the classroom.   Thumbsup

Yeah, but are you going to stay retired?  I retired in 09 and am working more now than when I was the fuzz.  Enjoy.

Thanks all.  I've got at least a couple more months to devote to renovating my house.  I figger while the housing market's down I'll put some dosh into making it a bit more liveable for me and whoever else cares to shack up with a skinhead motorcycle-riding slacker    Bigsmile .   We have some regional motorcycle events to attend in the spring & summer (including the STN National); then in late August if no one else's retired I'll probably do a solo jaunt out west, look up some friends in CA, and scope out some Lebensraum in Montana.  Still thinking of raising goats as a sideline/hobby.    As for work, in the DC area I always have the option of doing consulting with one of the established firms.  My former employers tried to extract a promise from me to come back in that capacity in a couple months.  But seriously - I don't want to, and my number crunching suggests I shouldn't have to.  Still have some riding to do - next year we'd like to visit Iceland, and after that Europe or Australia.

Have a good time being retired!  I will still be slaving away for the next 2.5-3 decades, but I'm saving 15% toward the day.

Congratulations Scratch.  Well done.   Thumbsup

I'm with the others.  I'm at least 15 years away from even "semi-retirement" and trying my best to sock in 15% into the old 401k.  Nowhere near my overall goal financially because I enjoy spending $$.

Do you have any advice for us "slaves"?

Great!  I told the waitress that part of my retirement plan was to spend more time at local eateries annoying the staff.   My coffee tasted funny.
