    Happy New Year

    Just wanted to wish everyone here a Healthy, Happy New Year.

    And: wooohooo

    Today I walked out of work and drove home for the last time. I am now officially retired as of midnight. What a great New Year. My 2010 has 52 weeks of 6 Saturdays and 1 Sunday per week.

    Happy New Year, and Happy New Occupation, Bernie. Now you're really gonna be busy. (After you catch up on your sleep, of course.)

    Happy New Year to you Bernie I can only imagine how good it feel to be out of your job. With all the new rules and crap that is going with it, has sucked all the fun out of aviation. It used to be a nice way to make a living.

    Thanks everyone. I truly hope each has a great new year.

    Jay you are right about the politics. The stress of working 26 yrs and then the last 7 as a supervisor just tripled the stress. It just got to where it wasn't fun going to work anymore.

    Tony I think with my clock repair shop plus woodturning I will stay pretty busy. Oh and a little golf won't hurt. I have been told that now that I am retired after a month or two I will wonder how I had time to have a job and work.

    Vaughn I might sleep in till maybe 6:30 or maybe 7 am instead of getting up at 4:30. Oh and my son said on facebook that dad after 4 decades of working that he now has a new boss, "MOM" with a 42 yr honey-do list.

    Happy New Life, Bernie! You are young enough to enjoy YEARS of doing nothing. I retired 11 years ago, donít do anything and donít have enough time to do it. Good luck on sleeping past 4:30. That may be your greatest difficulty of your adjustment.
