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.
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.
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!
