Retired as of today

Well I have changed jobs to being a part time truck drive. It is a small truck, 1 ton dually that does not require a CDL. The job is to move the boss from place to place as it is determined at the time of decision. After 41 years of combined federal service it is time to retire.
We are looking at plans and will probably snow bird in Fla near Eustis.
Ann is getting stronger from her treatments so all is well.
Cheers,

John, Congratulations! Hope you can handle the new job it's a tough one but I think you can do it!!!! Glad to
hear Ann is doing better and hopefully we will see you a the NE Rally next year. We've wintered twice in Umatilla which is just about 4 miles north of Eustis. It's a nice area and has alot of community events. Check out the towns website.

Regards,
Betty and Steve

At a point in time, even Chesty Puller had to lay it down. Enjoy what lies ahead.

John,

Congratulations on your retirement! I still have some time to go before I can do it for good. I'm still trying to go down under one more time. Enjoy retirement!

Take Care,

Congrats!! Ann and John. Now the real work begins. No spare time. To get a job done, you have to spend one day planning, one hour the next day doing it, and then taking a day off to rest up, before even thinking about the next task at hand. It is a busy time and Barb and I wish you the very best and hope you enjoy Florida.
