    Congratulations. Perhaps you should call in sick. Seriously, that is a big milestone.

    I recently retired after 31 yrs. Was planning on finding another job for financial reasons but the longer I stay out of the rat race, the more I like it. Work is overrated.
    Enjoy your retirement.

    Congratulations. First year out and it's fantastic. We're on the return loop of a road trip from California to Tennessee at the moment. Life is awesome being retired.

    cool. well done. my boy turned 1yo two weeks ago so we're in for another 17 years. wife and I are on a trajectory to attend his HS graduation (assuming we're still using the same schooling model as today) and retire the next day. I'll be 60...

    I wa forced into early retirement in my early 40s a few years ago by blindness. I hate it. I want to be out in the workplace. Instead i have a few clients, practice music 3 or 4 hours a day and take care of the kids wbu are entering teenager years while wife works stressful job. We both would love to switch places.

    Congratulations.

    I've got too long to actually think about that kind of thing.

    Congrats! Sounds like you're able to retire early - that's becoming more and more rare these days, I believe.

    That grass won’t cut itself.

    Congrats. As I was leaving my last day all I could think of was “Now what?”

    It worked out.

    You ain't kidding. I'm not sure I'll ever retire, although my s/o is 15 years younger than me, so, maybe I can force her to keep going while I stay at home :D

    Congrats and enjoy the gold watch they should give you to keep track of time when you've got plenty of time now.

    I have a coworker who claims that retired people become lethargic, listless, and boring, and just sit around waiting to die.

    Methinks it might have a bit to do with him not having saved a dime into his 50's, but if I happen to be wrong, get ready for that. ;)
