Could you help me out? I am reading the Cut & Run series and I may have just missed it but I was wondering how old Ty, Nick, Zane, and Kelly are?

I’m glad somebody figured this out and posted it, because I was reading B&C and got stuck when Zane said he had 2 years til retirement because I didn’t think he was old enough.

So, I did a little research and I found this

Birthdays!

Zane Garrett - October 15, 1966
Ty Grady - May 27, 1974
Nick O’Flaherty - January 19, 1974
Elias Sanchez - April 23, 1974 d: October 2008
Kelly Abbott - March 20, 1975
Owen Johns - November 6, 1975
Duruand “Digger” Garrigou - April 3, 1975

Cut & Run starts in October 2008 so, as of the start of the series, Ty is 34 and Zane is 42.

As of the most recent C&R book, Ball & Chain, which takes place Christmas 2011 / January 2012, Ty is 37 (turning 38 in May) and Zane is 45 (turning 46 in October).

The most recent Sidewinder series book, Cross & Crown, takes place in June 2012, which puts Nick and Ty at 38 and Kelly at 37 (with Zane still at 45 turning 46 in October). 

FBI Special Agents may receive the full FERS Basic Benefit if they retire at age 50 with 20 years of federal law enforcement officer service, or at any age with 25 years of such service

So, in T&G Zane says “You realize last month was actually twenty-one years, right?” when they got back from the photoshoot and walked into the surprise party.  

The difference between B&C and T&G is a little more than 6 months (spring/Easter to winter/Christmas) so Zane is still only with the FBI for 21 years.  He’s not going to be 50 until 2016, and if I’m figuring right, he’s actually got 4 years til he’s eligible for retirement.  Am I figuring wrong,  or does the math not quite add up

Your numbers depend on Zane wanting full benefits.  He is a rich man’s son.  He does not need full benefits.  Most agents have to work until full benefits kick in, so they can retire more easily.  Basically, the FBI retirement plan is more guidelines than hard, fast rules for special agents.  People retire for all sorts of reasons, and Zane might want to retire early.  The two years are either Zane’s own personal goal or Zane is just randomly saying a number in the office because everything said in that office is under surveillance.  Zane likes to keep his cards close to his chest.

Besides.  Abi never plays it straight.  She is up to something.

Yeah, I’d considered the full benefits thing, but if he doesn’t care about full benefits, why doesn’t he just retire now so Ty can keep working.  The way he said it implied there was a point to staying those two years, and damned if I can figure out what it is. 

And yeah, I’m sure Abi has a plan and a reason for two years instead of four, but my pigeon brain can’t come up with one lol.

rehfan replied to your post: “How to change the sheets at the Quintal household”:
Do you not have DOORS at the Quintal house? Because it is my experience that most felines are stymied by the average round door handle as they don’t have opposable thumbs.

We have ill-fitting doors with lever handles. Vinnie is big enough that all he has to do is get up on his hind paws and smack the levers, and the doors pop open. It was a terrible day when he figured out he could do this.

ETA: Also, since my bedroom was never intended to be a bedroom (it’s a basement multi-purpose room) there are no locks on the doors.

I live in dread of the day our cat discovers how to use the stupid excuse for doorknobs lever handles on the doors.

There are few better feelings than having absolutely no idea what you’re doing and somehow managing to do a good job of it anyway.
