Finally retired!
Fri, 03-29-2013 - 11:56pm

I started counting at 39 months, and here it was today:  my first day of retirement.  I worked for GE Aviation, a high stress position with people I truly enjoyed working with, great benefits from GE, and a continual challenge.  I don't think it has completely sunk in that I'm never going back!

Now I will have more time to spend with Comet as he eases over the bridge and start cleaning up my yard from a long, hard winter. 


Oh say, can you see?

It was one year ago, today, for me.  It is an incredible sense of freedom.
