Retired at Last!

Hans got some unexpected great news this week. He is one of 12 people who will retire at the end of August!

About 6 weeks ago his company said they want to restructure the management positions and if anyone wants to retire early, they have a nice compensation package set up. This has been Hans' dream for years - to retire with a package. Immediately he said, "Pick me! Pick me!" He didn't think they would since he has let it be known he is thinking about retirement and why wouldn't they just wait him out? However, to his great delight, he found out August 21 that he is one of 12 lucky people and his last day will be August 31!

Life is grand.
