Congratulations Ted. You'll find retirement more exhausting than a job. I retired a year ago. I get up in the morning with nothing to do, go to bed at night with only half of it done. How to keep up with everything wears you ragged. How did we ever get things done when working?
Enjoy yourself, you deserve it. Thank you for your 30 years of service.

Thirty years is a long time at any one job I know because I retired 4.5 years ago after thirty years.

Retirement is the most rewarding time I've experienced and highly recommend it.


I wish you a long & happy journey.

Thanks guys. Just turned 49 in October. Started young. It feels so strange to me already. Not quiet sure where to start. It's 4:02 A.M. here and I just can't sleep. And no I haven't worked 3rd shift in 28 years. But I guess the best thing with that is I can sleep in when I finally do doze off because I don't have to worry about working today which would've been my day to start at 7:00 A.M. Switching from 12 hour days to 0. Oh well I already feel a big relief lifted.

I have been told that it takes some people a period of time to "adjust" to retirement mode. I wasn't one of those people. My wife retired in June of 2012 after teaching 38 years, and didn't hit retirement realization until she didn't have to go back in the fall. But at some point, all work related stress dissipates. Whenever I'm asked "how's retirement," my usual answer is "it's not over-rated one bit!"

Congrats Ted. I retired 2+ years ago after 40+ years in LE mostly as a game warden. Enjoying it to. Busy as ever. Enjoying my FBglass camper. I am a member in a Lions Club, & other community organizations. Then there's hunting & fishing too.

Smile Congratulations

And thank you for your service.
My uncle was on the Milwaukee PD (WI), and our son-in-law retires in January from Kent PD (WA).
I retired 23 Aug 2002, from The Boeing Company, and the time has just flown!
First, every day seems like a Saturday. (Maybe not for you because you probably worked a lot of Saturdays.)
Then you begin to wonder how you ever found time to work all those years!

Maybe you can make the Quatzsite gathering in February?

Thank you but my Scamp is hibernating in my Shelter Logic shelter. Winter weather has arrived in ND. Very little snow yet though. Time for ice fishing!

Congratulations Ted! Just got back from deer hunting and saw this. I hope the next 30 years are as exciting as the last 30 for you. Enjoy life. You deserve it.

Have fun, enjoy! And for goodness sake don't do so much that retirement is more hectic than the job! My wife recently retired and has more obligations on her calendar than she did when she was working.

I swear I'm going to need to tie her to the back bumper of the scamp to get her to take a real vacation. She does seem to be having fun but still....!

Thanks to all of you. I keep trying to plan stuff around my job and then realize I'm retired. Just will take a little time to stop thinking that way. I swear after all these years helping people it's hard to think about myself. I'll figure it out and at least I don't have to work the cold winter coming up. I really like that.

When you get around to reading, after all you now have the time to do so, you might like this book The Joy of NOT Working; a book for the retired, unemployed, and overworked by Ernie J. Zelinski. The other one I like is Master Class; living longer, stronger, and happier by Peter Spiers (sponsored by Road Scholar). Enjoy!
