I stay happily involved as Pastor Emeritus of the church I served as senior pastor for many years. I am invited to assist with weddings, baby dedications, etc. and, sadly, many funerals. I make occasional hospital calls and have begun teaching seminary extension courses. My Burgman, named St. Peregrine (aka Perry), is my transportation when weather permits.

Retired 5½ years ago from the computer industry when I was offered money and a pensiono take early retirement. I think I took about 80 nanoseconds to decide to leave when the offer was made, the job was crap, remote support for a very large number of brain dead silly servants, most of whom had the manners of a dead aardvark. Hated the job and was thinking of leaving anyway.

Nowadays, when people ask what work I do, I simply reply "Work, oh that's what poor people do to get money isn't it".

Skint but happy.

Cheers,

I started work in 1948 as apprentice auto mechanic in England, came to Canada in 1951, got my journeymans ticket.
Also got journeyman partsmans ticket after a few years and spent most of my working life in the auto business.
I eventually retired on my 65th birthday in 1996, I figured 48 years was long enough. I have a wife(#2), 3 daughters and
3 grandchildren, a K7 AN400 and a model railway that I spend time working on, and am looking forward to my
80th birthday in a couple of months.
Stay safe out there

I'm a manager at a mining machinery factory.

I ride just about every day that the roads are safe. Ten miles each way.

It always makes me feel like I did a little more that day than just get up and go to work.

After 3 months on my part time job as a delivery driver for Pep Boys, I am starting to realize the many benefits that were not so obvious at first. See if you can guess some.

I just tried PMing Duster too to see if I got the same error. It may be localized to your account. Let me know if you get the error again and we'll do some troubleshooting.

I was a high school teacher for the last 6 years. Now, I am in law school and I work part-time for a firm that only defends those accused of marijuana crimes (usually cases where the defendant has a medical marijuana card, but still gets arrested). There, I write motions, interview clients and witnesses, attend conferences, and co-chair at trials.

currently no w4 type job, I am primary caregiver for both parents with " forgetful problem" it makes life interesting. Retired Marine in a previous life. if it was fixed we broke it, if it was broke we fixed it, if we didn't know, we painted it . and before anyone says thanks for service, let me say the teachers deserve more thanks than the Marines, we had a way of dealing with problems quickly and efficiently , teachers very rarely are allowed to rip off a students head and p%ss down their necks, and still they come to work day after day

I retired from the US Navy with 32 years of Active and Reserve duty in 1993. I am a veteran of Cuban Missile Blockade, Vietnam, Desert Shield, and Desert Storm service. As a Fire Control Technician, I operated and repaired electronics equipment in Gun and Missile systems. After I was a Senior Chief Petty Officer (E8), I was commissioned as a Chief Warrant Officer (W2). I was serving in the Military Sealift Command when I retired as a CWO4 (W4). I worked in federal civil service writing tech manuals and maintenance procedures until I retired there, too. I worked for the county assessor's office for a while until I decided that was enough. I volunteer my time providing military honors with other veterans at military funerals ( www.militaryhonors.blogspot.com ). I also ride with the Patriot Guard Riders. My pickup truck sits in the drive way with cob webs on it (14 mpg). I ride my burg most every day (48 mpg) and have lots of grins and giggles. cvw

I just retired from the hairy world of pet grooming after 20 years. Not sure what the good Lord has in mind for me now.
