Well, I pulled the plug after 28 years, 3 months, and 19 days…
Effective at midnight of 31st of January I will be RETIRED from the United States Navy.
I started my retirement leave (Navy term for vacation) in the middle of December.
Home for the holidays was great. I got into the shop about 6 hours in 2 weeks.
Ended up with a head and chest cold that made breathing sawdust, even through a mask, too uncomfortable.
Started the new year with longing glances out to the garage, while in the house playing with grand-kids and harassing the wife.
Finally got into the garage yesterday, a month after starting the retired life, to work on a consignment project.
And today I get to go in to finish that, and work on a couple of other promised pieces.
Maybe when I get caught up I’ll get more garage time.
