New chapter in life

My wife and I work for the same company. She has 27 years here, I have 24. Yesterday we turned in our retirement notices. She is 59, I am 62. We bought a house last month in a little town in West Virginia. Ellamore, population (before we get there) of 399. Last Thursday we listed our home for sale. We expected it to take some time to sell based on the price range it was in. It sold Saturday 😳!
We can only hope we have saved enough money to make this work. God I hope so!
Hunting, fishing, motorcycle, helping my dad and sister and enjoying time with my bride is all I want now.
Wish us luck please! April 21st will be our last day at work.

Congrats! Enjoy the good life!
If you're like most retirees I know, the work hasn't begun yet.

That's great news, Dave. I wish you two the very best, you earned it, you more than paid your dues in that high stress job. I see a summer time destination in my future...if you don't mind.
