Congratulations.

I'm jealous...never held one job that long and most jobs I had never had pensions of any kind (much less health insurance). It's SS for me at 62 - 4 1/2 more years. I almost just gave myself a heart attack.

I hope your wife does not get too sick of you. I'll be praying for her.

I have to get another job, but not soon. Probably do some work as long as it's cash in a few months. I have two kids in college and they will be needing a little cash....

Other than watching the History Channel and food Network, I will be playing a whole lot of guitar, reading and doing crossword puzzles....

And of course a few trips to Macon, Wanee, Gadsden and other various and sundry places...

Probably be chasing a skirt or three too

You mean AUGUST 1st, right? Last time I talked to you, you were on vacation. Now you'll be on permanent vacation.

Congrats, Road Dawg. Now we can get our band together.

33 years with the same employer. That is unheard of these days. Something I couldn't do unless I worked with my present employer until I am 76. I may not be able to retire before then...

Congratulations to you. I'm seriously jealous.

I look good in a skirt...

I thought it was August 5th, however when I called the job on Monday thinking I needed to come in they said "no" and they would keep sending me paychecks....

Wow, after 33 years with the same company, you are to be commended. Build them guitar chops, sleep late, watch the tube, listen to music....do what you please for a while, you have certainly earned it. Congrats, enjoy, chill and best wishes....

Cangrats John! I'm green with envy! Hope I get to do the same someday! Hope you get to enjoy yourself and do the things you always wanted to do, but work kept getting in the way! Maybe now you'll get your days and nights straightened out! Play all night!!!!!!
