Default A new chapter in my life

Well
i was speaking to La Jolla last night on skype, i approached the directors of where i worked and asked them if they would consider me for retirement.
The look on their eyes was pure shock,with nearly 20 years service i decided that i wanted to push forward with my fly tying business and workshops.
It has come to a stage where i can now concentrate on doing the videos, magazine articles and workshops for clubs and the local government.
The company has backed me 100% and as from today i am now retired.
So i am now going to push forward with the demos and workshops.
i might even have time to start my book on Irish patterns at long last.
Going to celebrate tonight with a big glass of Morgans spiced rum.
imxer, fysh, mcnerney and 7 others like this.
