The Not Working Retired
Wow, it's a red letter week with me posting twice! I mentioned to Jack that it seems like we have been on a dead run since Fall began. I wish it was because I was doing some fabulous things, but really it's just been normal stuff...like work...and...work...and work at home...and OK, we did play hooky last weekend and enjoyed our Saturday adventures. But I wanted to tell about another activity I enjoyed. Last Friday I went to a retirement party for one of my co-workers (who just happens to also be a neighbor!). Elaine has worked at our hospital for 45yrs as a dedicated RN. Samaritan Hospital used to have a nursing school attached to it. Elaine graduated from there and has worked with SamHO ever since. She's one of those people that never gets angry. Well, I've never seen her angry anyway! She always has a smile on her face, a quiet demeanor, a class act. A good nurse. She and her hubby are moving to Florida and the house is up for sale. I wish her tons of happiness, sunshine and no snow for once in her life! Here are a few pics from the evening.
stole wore it when he wasn't working!) We only had the smiley face part framed..anyway I forgot to snap a pic of it..dang it! He loved that too, but really the crazy cake stole the show....I could tell a funny story about it, but I'm going to refrain....Anyway, I hope both these folks enjoy retirement...I hope they have as many years of retirement as they had working to get to this point. Also, I'm jealous.......
