In just three days, it will be my last day of being a teacher. Final exams are the next two days and then close out on Wednesday. But, unlike other summers in the past, there will be no going back for me.

I am told by retired friends that I will have less time than I have had in the past. It seems they are always busy and time moves faster. I certainly hope this is true, well at least the busy part, and not so much the time flying by part.

What am I going to do is the number one question people have been asking me for the past six-months since I announced my retirement. The first thing is to relax. Maybe I won't lie awake wondering how I am going to get this student to pass, when they do nothing but sit there. At least that problem won't exist for me anymore.

I will still have my hobby of Amateur Radio and the capability of talking around the world. I have three novels that I have neglected for the past year, that are waiting for me to edit them and try to sell to a publisher. I hope to get these done sometime in the near future. I was asked about editing a journal publication, so I will investigate that more.

And of course, I get to drive my wife nuts by being home every day. I am sure she will find something for me to do. There are several repairs around the house that need to be done, so that will keep me busy.

Most of all, I hope to live. With the less stress of fighting students who don't want to do the work and the pressure of having to pass all students gone, I hope to extend my life to a ripe old age (excuse the old cliché).

To all the students I have had in the past, thanks for the memories.
