This is how to start my retirement.

Recommended Posts

I worked my last last night and signed off for the very last time after 25 years.  My God-son Talked me into going fishing this morning on zero sleep and when he pulled up at the park and ride I got the surprise of my life.  His Dad, my best friend of 30 years had flown all the way from Ohio to spend a couple of days with us.  To top it off, I caught a good one. This is how I wanted to start my retirement. I'm the one holding the bass.

First off - Nice Bass & Great Pic !

 Secondly ~ "Congratulations" which is a common response I got when I retired.  

Although I appreciated the support, I didn't completely get the sentiment.

That is, until I lived it for a while.  After which, I can easily understand why it is most appropriate.

I think you are going to love being on "Doug Time".  

 

So Congrats again my friend.

You're certainly earned it.

Congratulations on your retirement and joining the "Every day is Saturday" club! Great way to start off retirement by going 10-8 with your Godson and and your best friend and getting on some fish. Enjoy retirement and continued good fishing Columbia Craw, JB

As others have said, Congrats!

 

Truth be told, I have no idea how I ever found time to work! Lots of naps too.

 

God Bless you, enjoy life!

Congratulations Columbia Craw! I'm going to be at that stage of my life soon and I can't think of anything better than catching fish Monday through Thursday. What a blessed morning you had, a reminder that rich comes In many forms! Enjoy yourself and keep fishing those dis-continued Rebels!
