I am 62 and have been working since age 14, but my first day of practice as a Physician Assistant was Feb 2nd, 1977. I retired from the Army in 1994, but continued in private practice. After almost 35 years of practice, I will retire on Jan 20th. I have 11 working days left (Holidays and one vacation day excepted)! My wife retired in June, and we have plans to travel (some on the bike, some not), and experience the freedom we have always desired. I plan to play a lot more golf, and I am considering getting back into sailing, which I did for many years. I am both excited and apprehensive, as has been the case anytime there was a major change in my life. Ain't life grand?
