I said she knows how to do just about everybody's position in our department. If she knew mine I would have recommended her for it. :lol:

Congratulations! All good things will begin. You won't know how you managed to get anything done while you worked.

Congratulations, Bill enjoy your well earned retirement! First retirement was a no-brainer, just do the math. Working two more years would have only netted me about $75.00 more per month. Then I would have missed out on two years of direct deposits! Retired and went back to work for the same outfit as a perm. part time. SS was a little different, but Suzy Ormond says get it as soon as you can, as we don't know how long it will last.

Congratulations Bill...and Rosie, I'm sure you'll get used to it!!! :o) Just kidding you two...this is the day we all work for in life, and it's nice to see when a good egg gets to the finish line and crosses it on his own terms!

Okay now southern guys, it's time to turn up the scanners on all our CubDealPilferingDefenseSystems !!! :lol:

I found this old Cub, Forgotten and Forlorn,
With pistons and valves frozen and worn.
Help from my buddies on Farmallcub.com,
And an engine from Ralph, (37’s the one),
Now ole Corky is running and back to life,
Much to the surprise of my dear, dear wife!

Congratulations.

Nice thing about being retired is you can pick and choose when you work and what you want to work on. Bad news is the wife thinks her odd job list of tasks are now your responsibility.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Congratulations, Bill. Very happy for you. Hope you enjoy retirement as much as I do. When you collect all the Cubs in the area, let me know and I will tell you about Cowboy Action Shooting. :D :D

Vince, there aren't many left around here. I just snuck one in from south of Bloomington Illinois. Even Indiana has them hidden nowdays. :lol:

I'm a bit late chiming in on this thread, been gone all week-end.

Bill, even though I knew you had this planned, I was still surprised when I saw your post. Regina & I couldn't be happier for you! As others have said, it's great that you were able to retire on your own terms, it's getting pretty rare these days. Although I know you will, I hope you enjoy retirement as much as we have.
