Update

To all my Islaholic friends:

I received word that my early retirement has been approved as of today. I am now retired (not retarded, though!) What a relief.

; )

This was due to some health problems. More time (but less pesos) for Isla!

Thanks for all of your prayers! Your concern has been mind-blowing!

Blessings,

Robert (fotodude)

Congratulations, Robert! Control of one's own time is just as valuable as money in my book. Hope you enjoy retirement and get a chance to visit Isla as often as you wish!

Thanks! The health issues won't get better, but hopefully won't get worse (that's the idea.)

Now I need my neurologist to give me a prescription for "Isla Mujeres" STAT.

Congratulations on the early retirement. So sorry it had to be for medical reasons. I dream of early retirement, but alas, I must work to pay for my trips and health insurance for the DH so he can have an early retirement!
