Working on it.
That's EXACTLY what my partner did at my university. His was a research equipment development and support engineer. They "forced" him out w/ involuntary retirement then found out how tough it was to find a replacement. He works about 15 hrs/week at a higher pay rate than before he retired... with full benefits!
Terry, it's just as good as you imagine it to be. Give it a try if you are given the opportunity.
