This afternoon we stopped at our good friend Greg's place of work. Well, it used to be his place of work but he retired and the insurance office staff gave him a fond farewell open house. Now I could really call him a "Luck Stiff" for being able to retire. But he's worked long and hard his whole life. He's contributed to our community in a big way by a being on city council, school board, many other "boards" throughout the town. He goes to our Church and has served in every leadership position you can imagine. But at 68 he and his lovely wife Gayle are going on a mission for the Church. He was planning on working a couple of more years, just part-time, but when he was asked to serve he and his wife didn't hesitate to say "Yes!". So off they will go and we wish them all the best. I know for a fact that "Luck" has nothing to do with his success in business, personal life, church life, or community life...the harder you work, the luckier you get...that's all there is to it. Congrats Greg! We will miss you!! (Plus he was our insurance agent and we'll miss that too!)

This was really cool....I want candy bars when I retire with my name on them!
This was just a small portion of the food served. The conversation Jack and I had about the spread tells me how well my hubby knows the real me. ME: "Jack, the food looks really good, are you going to have some?" JACK: "Oh? It does look good". ME: "Seriously Honey, you should go and get some food...get a nice big plate full." JACK: (His eyes get squinty and he looks really carefully at me)"Why? What are we having for dinner?" ME: "Ummmm....whatever is in that buffet line." Yep, I'm a Lucky Stiff being married to such a smart guy!
