Feb. 28th is officially my last day of employment. The last day I actually worked was Dec. 19th. and I left 1/2 day early then. I had enough vacation and holidays to cover to the end of 2014. Then I took some sick leave and five weeks vaction for 2015 to cover through the end of Feb. So actually I've been "practicing" for 2 & 1/2 months. I think I've got the hang of it now.
I walked in the front door on my 18th birthday and have been with them ever since.
After 45 years, 7 months, and 7 days I've had enough.
I was given a list of parting gifts to choose from, but none of them was a "new truck", so the wife got to choose what she wanted. She is just as deserving as I was since i would never have gotten this far without her. She chose a kitchen-combo, which had a Cuisinart Stand Mixer and a DeLonghi Expresso Maker. I usually choose a mantle clock but ther weren't any different ones available on this list.
I'm thinking I'm gonna like this retirement thing!!!!! Rick
