    What’s the best thing about retirement (for me)? Not having a boss.

    Even when I’m back working on contract, I have a contract manager, not a boss — even when he’s the same guy who used to be my boss. It’s so much different. (I’m not working at this time and probably won’t be until the middle of next winter.)

    Mike – I have been my own boss for many years now, I ‘m beginning to get used to it.
