After 2 ½ years of retirement I can honestly say that it is something everyone should try some day! In short, I am loving it, but getting here was not easy. I retired from the department on January 1, 2020. My wife Lyn and I planned to return to our New England roots and build a reproduction early 1800s Greek Revival house in the town of West Bath, Maine, which is located about 50 miles up the coast from the city of Portland. Ground was broken in October of 2019 and construction started on schedule.
