List of stuff to use in greetings

I love coming up with cheesy greeting to put in cards. Life goes so quick but it is still a good idea to put together a nice greeting in a card or email and send it to someone you love. Here are some retirement wishes items I have now:

  • Retirement is like a never-ending weekend party except that you can’t drink, can’t hook up and can’t stay up all night even if you want to. So in short, it is boring. Congratulations.
  • A life without the daily traffic jams and mounts of paper work. Welcome to that rosy life my friend. Happy retirement!
  • Best wishes for a relaxing and happy retirement.
  • From now on you do not have to put off the things that you have been craving to do. Welcome to the time of your freedom. Happy Retirement!
