    Default Retired At Last!!

    After a few months of semi retirement, I done the deal Wednesday and left for good! It's time to go fishing at last!
    One downer, my doctor thinks I may be developing Parkinson's Disease. Got the shakes in my hands. Not all that concerned, people can live for years with it, and I still have tests to run. But if anybody wants to take an old war horse fishing, bust me out a pm..

    Have a happy and healthy retirement.
    Hopefully your health concerns will only be concerns, and no more.
    Leave a few fish for the rest of us.

    Congratulations on your retirement. It’s great not having to go to work on a Monday morning or any morning for that matter. Plus now you can fish when you want and avoid the crowds.

    Enjoy yourself and make the most out of it. You won’t regret it.

    Congrats Jerry! Sounds like the forecast is 100% chance of ripped lips for the LMB!

    I just noticed the NEWS. Congratulations! Seems strange doesn't it? But you (we all can) "get used to it"; not going to work. Soon you will understand retires when they say, "How did I ever have time to work?"
    Now when your buds ask, "What do you do now with all of your "free time"?", best answer is to say "NOTHING, I do nothing".
    Trying to explain how a retiree can be so busy & work so hard while seemingly accomplishing so little(as in my case) is impossible.
    ENJOY
