    Alan, is this the first day of the rest of your life?

    Alan,
    I think today is the beginning of your retirement, and I wanted to say congratulations. Sorry if I have it wrong!

    That's correct. This is actually the last day of a long career and it looks like it's going to be an all day party at work. I'm not sure if the celebrations are for me or for them though.
    Thanks for the good thoughts.

    The day has arrived! Enjoy.

    Ditto, and we know you'll be enjoying every day.
    And I don't know if you're signed up with a pension but I was just mentioning to someone the miracle of having MegaCorp. deposit $ in my checking account on the first of every month even though I officially left work 15 months ago - a nice reminder of the benefits of a successful career!
