Today, it happened. I retired. 👀

Forty-four years ago as as slim trim (read: skinny) 18 year old I joined the Navy. Twenty-four years later, I had my 1st retirement. 🏴‍☠️

Today, I closed the next chapter of my career and had my 2nd retirement. Federal service is behind me as an employer, they are now my benefactor. Keep the checks rolling in! 🏧

What the future holds,eh, who knows. But like the Grateful Dead sang, "What a long strange trip it's been". 🧟‍♀️

The one constant through it all, Wanda. My bride of <cough, cough> 41 years has been here through thick & thin, for richer or for poorer (much more frequent), in sickness & in health, and thru it all, my best friend.👰

Love her to death but if anybody ever needed your prayers, it's her. She gets me every day now. 😱

I am now living the life where every day is a Saturday and Hump Day has no meaning. 🐪 🐫

Congratulations on your second retirement. You're really fortunate to have two of them. I'll never even see one retirement. I will literally have to work till I die. But again, congratulations, that's awesome. Buy more Caniks and enjoy life. :)

Glenn, congratulations my good man. I recently retired after 27 years of Air Force and because I was a good boy I don’t have to work with my VA and retirement checks eclipsing my AD pay. I do have a potential job which may be of benifit to the members here and make my name RED.. but until the handshake happens I will hold onto the good news. I am closer now being In CT and Maine most of my time so let’s make plans to swap war stories and shoot!
