WAY TO GO RICHARD!!!

Knowing what I know and doing what I do, I don't see retirement in my future. Can't sit still long enough....

Have a great time!

You know, since you posted this morning, I've been thinking about this. And I'm just so thrilled for you! Both of you! A pic to show such joy! (That's me on the right.)

Now, the real hard work comes forward, trying to figure out how to get all the things done, that were put off until retirement.

Rich, give it all you got, and ENJOY..

Well it's over, the work I mean. As I sit here in Verde Valley, looking out at the mountains we just came from after spending a wonderful summer, all we can do is wish you two the best for your retirement. Travel well and have as much fun as we are having. We will see you tomorrow at DD.

We retired end of 2010. Can not believe we are now Nov. We have spent the spring to fall months traveling. Going a week, come home reload and leave again,. To date our biggest expense has been the gas, as we have been boondocking and natl forests. Winterized this week but if the weather clears will take off again. You will totally enjoy your freedom. Go out there and enjoy and flash your lights when you pass another AS on the road. Susan

Let's see now. On the occasion of Richard's retirement, perhaps we should create a list of the tangible benefits of retirement, things easily overlooked or forgotten. (Since memory starts to fade about this same time, it's nice to have things in writing.)

Here's one: At age 62, you can apply for a senior pass from the National Parks Service. (I've got a little less than three months to go before this one.)

CONGRATULATIONS!!

We've been retired just over 4 years, now, and it's like having a whole, new life.

You will love it.

Safe travels,


Maggie

Congrats!

It's a wonderful life -- we're so fortunate to be there.

One of my favorite little things about it is Sunday night.

Best regards,
Debbie
