Just to let everyone know that I'm retiring from banking at the end of November. Banking just ain't what it used to be and neither is this old gray compliance officer. smirk

I have to move in with my mother to be there for her and now I'll have more time to do more with my side-line (fun) job, and of course, much more time to be with the grandchildren! laugh

I'll still check in on things at BOL. Everyone here has been such a great support whenever I needed help with problems - both bank-related and personal.

Have fun, y'all, cause I plan to!

And I didn't even get over to see you. I'll be working in GA through the end of Nov so maybe I can still make it!

Best of luck to you. I also am jealous.

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
Okay - you may have to teach me how to weave! I'm ready to retire - mentally - just not financially. Enjoy! I'll miss seeing you at GBA events. Please let us know where you will be traveling so we can stop by and see you occasionally.

Thanks, everyone. This has been a very emotional day. I'd been hinting that I was seriously considering retirement, but I think everyone was totally surprised when it was announced. I think a lot of them are concerned about what work of mine they will have to deal with as a new part of their duties. smirk

Things are happening in such a way that I think this must be my time to retire. I'll be setting up a web site probably after the first of the year. My brother is taking continuing ed courses at Emory University in web design and has offered to design my site for the experience. That will be a great savings for me and something for his portfolio to show future prospects. grin

I've already started going through some of my files. Others I'll leave for them to decide what to keep and what to throw away.

Oh, well. Going to an advertising auction tomorrow and then working on my side business on Sunday to get ready for Stone Mountain the first weekend in November.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

Thanks, everyone! I'm looking forward to it very much.

Only 18 more working days to go (I've got a few vacation days and there are two holidays).

Way, way south.
Congrats!

And it seems that the hardest initials to get behind your name these days are RET.!

I have no idea how most of us are going to retire after the major losses in bank stocks...

I'll be at Stone Mountain Park the first weekend in November. Then two local shows after the first of the year, and Karen (my business partner) and I have to decide what shows we're going to do (now that I'll have the time and she won't have to do them by herself).

Enjoy your retirement but don't work too hard! smile Make sure you get your website link posted here. There are any number of us who'd love to see or maybe even buy your work.

Don't know if I'll ever retire...nor that I really want to yet. I enjoy the interaction and working part-time keeps my mind sharp. Having a great boss means if I ever need time beyond my 1/2 day to do for the grans, I get it.
