    After 11 years in the construction industry, 32 years in the cement industry, and 10 years of baling hay while going to school (square bales, no round bales); tomorrow is my last day to be gainfully employed. Looking forward to doing some travelling, spending time with my cars and motorcycles, and especially spoiling my four grandsons (Ages 12, 5, 3, and 5 months). Spend more time with friends and more time on a motorcycle.The worst thing about retiring is not having the excuse to use that I have to go to work when Patty thinks she needs to have something done.

    X2 Must be nice. Only about 10 more years away. My retirement plan is not working yet, can only match one or two numbers per ticket.

    Retirement is Great, do it as soon as you can and as long as you can. STAY OFF THE COUCH and you will most likely enjoy it longer.

    I am also retired, but feel it's a dam shame that you have to be so old to do it....Regardless, life is good...

    Congratulations Sir!

    Shamrock, congratulation, now you have more time to get that rig out and travel to new destination and then get the dog out on every stop you make. See you in one of those days. Yes you may have to do what Patty wants more often. but if traveling then that is your out.
