Well retirement day has come and gone. My last day at work was Friday,8-24-12. We had a great day, did some interesting and challanging surgery and everything went well. It was a great day to end on. My only regret is that I won't have anymore frequent contact with my staff, who have in great part made it possible for me to acheive my goals here and now to move on to new goals. Being able to work with them was a great source of satisfaction and pleasure for me. They made what we do a lot of fun.
Now I will have more time to work on this blog and also get ready for our next big adventure. We are heavily into rehabbing our new house in Anna Maria Island. That it going well and we hope to have it done by the end of September and then we can begin the task of getting our St. Pete home ready for sale.
We also are hauling Allegria out of the water next week to begin the final phase of getting her ready for our cruise. We plan to be out of the water for around a month, and I will plan to document what we are doing as well as what we already have done in future posts.
