LOL. I'm planning to retire this Autumn, too. In our profession, we are not eligible to work the operations after age 56. I'll have 32 years of service at my retirement. That's enough for me - time for a new chapter. There was an article in our agency newsletter not long ago about an agency employee that retired at 47 years of service! I cannot in any universe imagine working at my job another 15 years.Too old at 60! what is the world coming to. That seems a bit much to a 73 year old but then again I did retire at 60!
