The awaited day arrived

Retired today after 47 years of full time employment. Wife and I have the house on the market in Fresno, CA and will relocate to a home base in the Portland metro area. Sept-April in Surprise, AZ area. Not wishing our life away anxious to begin this new chapter. It would take a lot to wipe the smile off our faces!

Congrats on your retirement, hope you have many years of travel enjoyment. Being retired and doing what you want, when you want and how you want is priceless.

I also just retired, Dec. 30, after 35 years with the State of California.
We sold our house in Napa and moved to Washington. Couldn't take California politics anymore and I'm a native.
Have 5 acres on a Puget Sound island.
We also will be traveling during the winter months.
