Wow - Got serious about my retirement goals. Passed the Basic and Core Courses this afternoon, within 7 hours of telling the boss I was retiring! As soon as my ticket arrives in my email I will be joining league play. When I retired from my principle occupation in 2000, it was with mixed emotions; I was too young to fully retire, yet I had options to continue working in different fields. After 10 years with four different technology companies I am now content to declare myself fully retired. No more work. OK, let's say that I will work short contracts or spot duty if requested and on my terms.
Now to start playing serious poker.
