Congratulations!Do at least some of the stuff you always meant to take care of.Then make plans to come see us at the beach.Neither the chores nor we are going to go away!
NO WAY!!!! That's awesome. Well, of course you need to come to italy a lot...duh.
Heard about the semi-retirement.That's a good way to ease into a very different life-style. We will still be here! (Maybe you can do a stop-over on the way to Italy.) :)
