Congratulations Bucket.  You will have lots more time to hunt up those rocks now.Happy Fossicking in your retirement.   Look forward to saying hi at Powelltown too.
Happy Fossicking from Chookie

Geology Rocks, I really dig it.
My rocks are gneiss, don’t take them for granite.

Good on you Bucket. Enjoy your last day which I hope is a big party not to forget.
Your new life is ahead of you now and I'm sure some of the skills you've picked up will be useful in ferreting out some great minerals.
Happy Days beers

Congratulations on retiring,

That is one of the job types my daughter is still trying to chase, Woofa.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.
