    Default Retirement Day - gdg

    Well....today is THE day.

    Will is retiring.


    31 years with the various "grandfathered" phone companies. He's only 50 years old so he'll still need to work! He wants to start his own installation/service company so there will be a lot of changes going on in our lives.

    So, a new chapter begins.........

    Wish us luck!!

    LOL...I already told him that he's not "really retiring" and not to expect to have me support him!!! I think after a week or so of being home and having to do all the "honey-does" around here, he'll be begging to go to work or get started on his own business!!!

    Working on the list of "honey-does"....

    Will is a sweetheart! Congratulations and I hope (if he has any energy left after the honey-do list) that he has great success with his business.

    Congratulations on the Retirement! And still plenty young to get started in something else. That is the way to do it! Good luck and enjoy!!
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.
