Congrats! I’ve quit a few jobs in my time, but don’t envision quitting retirement when it comes.

My dad was an Air Force pilot and retired after 24 years of service at age 49. He lived until age 82 so he was retired for more years than he worked.

Congrats on your retirement!

Retired at 52 while kids were in middle school

Best 10 years of my life

Always thought once they were in college and out of the house I'd go back...

Never did

Enjoy

Life can be short

I was supposed to retire this week (for the 3rd time), but decided to kick it down the road a while since everything seems to be shut down anyways (and the team I lead was crushed with work).

Congrats and good luck! Wishing you a long, healthy and fulfilling retirement.

Sort of, you do have to remember what day to take out the trash.
