Another group of friends at the shipyard have chosen to retire at the end of this year: Fellow blogger Dan W. finally put down his drafting pencil (okay, computer mouse) and will hit the high seas. Good friend and one time softball team mate Mike W. can now attend all of the spring training games his heart desires. Old Fat Barb (inside joke) can take some time for herself and find a sunny beach.
I'm sure others chose to go out at the end of this year. Maybe someone can add names to this list.
