Re-tire-ment: The withdrawal from ones occupation


That's what the Saint did.. He withdrew:) Offer we couldn't refuse.. We expected it next September but this works for us too. The only thing unsettling was that we has only returned from 2 weeks in Hawaii 48 hours before! And we were not expecting to come home to this.

We had some things we had to put in place and make sure we were all on the same page but all n all it worked out and the Firemen put on a very nice party for him!

The Saint will miss his partner Timmy and hope Timmy can keep his sweet spirit up.

I was so relieved that all our family could be here! It was nice to have all the kids and grand kids and a sister and a brother show up:)

Now we are ready for the rest of our life to begin !

The beautiful weather was an extra special bonus!

This next week I will begin my Journal on Hawaii! I could not get it started with all the other confusion setting in.

Easter was lovely and cooking out was great and all and all it's been a good week!


  1. What a fun day! Happy retirement!

  2. A wonderful week of memories:)

  3. Looks like you had all had a good turn out for the party and can't shake your finger at good weather this time of year!

  4. Speaking from experience, you two are going to LOVE retirement! Congratulations!
