    Awesome, HB! Congratulations!!

    I look forward to my retirement in about 3 years! I never thought I would be that old!

    Yellowstone was on my bucket list, so another one checked off! Funny thing though, I find myself wanting to visit most places again someday. I hear about things I missed!

    I love, love, love Yellowstone! I've been there twice (once when I was about 3 and then again when I was 12). Parts of Yellowstone look like an alien planet! So happy you got to go. I would love to go again.

    Thanks! You are so right! Gorgeous in areas and downright weird in others.

    Thank you everyone! I am so looking forward to no more month ends, quarter ends & year ends. I missed several concerts because I couldn't leave work the last 3 days of every month. And when Soda is in town, we will not have to plan around my work schedule. Yay!
    Plus I can finally get around to organizing all the Eagles memorabilia from the 70's to now. When we were cleaning out my parents' house a few years back, we came across boxes and boxes in one of the spare bedrooms. My mom apparently did not throw anything away!!
    A couple of them labeled with my name were filled with magazines containing Eagles' articles. I was a huge fan from the beginning. It is like a trip down memory lane. So I am anxious to getting started on that.

    That's awesome, HB!

    Can't wait to see some of that! If you decide to share it with us, that is!

    Brooke - So glad you were able to take that trip. Sounds like a lot of fun and this seems like a good time to do it.

    And HB - Congrats on your upcoming retirement. I didn't think you'd ever really do it! lol

    Make sure you have a retirement plan. A few years ago, I decided to retire, but I didn't realize how important it was to have a long-term plan. After I got through my short-term 'To Do' list, I got bored. So, after a year of retirement, I decided I wanted to go back to work. I accepted a 4 month contract that has turned into 2 years. I have been extending the assignment a quarter at a time. I had made up my mind that I was going to call it quits for good when my contract ended on June 30th this year. But, after the Coronavirus hit, I decided I may as well go ahead and continue to work since I couldn't do too much of anything else. I feel very fortunate in that I can pretty much work on my own terms in a job that I really enjoy. Having said that, I really am planning on calling it quits at the end of this year. Hopefully, I will have a better plan for Retirement II, and the pandemic will be under control so we can enjoy our golden years.
