Good on ya, Locker. Everyone needs to post their first climb in "retirement." Keep up the therapy and lay off the parkour.

Well, here's proof of truth, a posse of pedagogues posing, my LAST graduation ceremony. After 20 plus of these, I'm SO done. I'm the short guy flying in the back:

Can he fly?  Just wait until that next lead.  Yes, meat can fly.

Hey, Fritz--spot on, though as a community college instructor I was more of a glorified high school teacher in many ways, which was fine. Somebody has to crack them heads.

@Moose: You kill.

Had to add a couple days as I am being asked to give the commencement address for graduation- I'm pretty excited about this.
Otherwise 6/10 is the cut off.
Got selected for Jury duty so it is not the usual month of May
Looking forward to a really long summer/winter break

Wow....looks like we will be adding several new acolytes to the fold! Welcome and always remember that "work" is the bad four letter word.

OK, so Moose and Donini want to brag about how long they've been retired.

Hah! Slackers! I got both of 'em beat.

I haven't worked for money since August 2004 when I sold my ranch, put all the possessions into a purchased Zircon placed on my family land outside Mancos Colorado, and began to travel the world with wife Kathy - "before it was too late" for her (9 years older than me).

I thought I was just taking a sabbatical from work, but after Kathy died of lung cancer in 2007, I realized I didn't need to go back to work so, I've been retired now for 12.75 years plus! 4,600 days plus.

P.S. The Zircon still sits, contents undisturbed since 2004. I haven't needed the stuff ever since. Now my daughter gets to deal with the Zircon after I die - in about 30 years.
