Default I just quit my job

After 39 years, 2.5 months at the same place, I've fully retired. I'm drawing social security and state retirement. The wife is drawing state retirement and works about 20 hours a week, so the income situation should be OK.

Looking forward to volunteering somewhere (probably the VA) after a few weeks / months off.

I wanted to see our current project thru to the end (1.5 -2 years), but I don't think that I wanted to put in the hours and energy that it would require. And I have the feeling that I was being eased over to the side.

I'm 66 and in good health. Should have many more seasons at the Ray!

having been through it, once you've made up your mind to retire, you'll never go back.
congrats....it's better than you think.

You've been down there too long. It ain't 'cheques' - it's 'checks'. And you're right!

Congrats Wingman. I want a job just like yours--retired! I am not too far off. I turn 60 this year and am eligible for miltary retirement pay a month later. So I'll pay off my house in the next two years and cash it all in. Hopefully things work out. Until then, I am jealous of your situation. Its got to be nice when everyday is a Saturday. Oh wait, its Saturday and Im at work.

I walked away from the all the corp BS May 16, 2012. I never looked back. My brother kept asking me why I didn't get part time work some where? I LOOKED HIM IN THE EYE AND SAID "Do you not understand the concept of being retired?" I WORKED FOR 47 1/2 YEARS. Enough is enough.
