I think we can safety say that, Winter has arrived! I don’t mind the cold, as you can always put another layer of clothing on. However, when it’s HOT, you can’t take off enough clothing.
I’ve no idea who it was that said, after working for so long and you’re eligible for your "Old Age Pension," they named it retired? When you’re able to get that pension, it means that you’re old enough and TIRED! Gee, being retired then means you were already TIRED and now you're going to be even more TIRED?
Okay, the bottom line to this Tired and Retired stuff, is that I’m not going back to work and will be getting my old age pension, also known as Social Security. When I get this old left foot a moving again, I’m going to be moving it to my kids and grandkids, to-do’s! It will no longer be going up and down the steps of the COOP! Of course, I’m going to miss my Mason Office and Crew. You see for fourteen years, I’ve seen more of them than I have of Z. We are a family and although I’m leaving the office, I’m not DEAD!
I stated a couple of months ago that I wasn’t ready to retire yet. Well, I lied! No ands, ifs, or buts about it. After being confined to the house and at Z’s mercy, I got to thinking about what I wanted to do with the rest of my life? When it’s time to go, it’s time, and don’t pussy foot around it, just LEAVE or if you must say, "RETIRE!"
P.S. Gee, I’ve so much I want to see and do that I don’t know where to start. No, Z, not going to open and close gates! Just not in my RETIREMENT job list of duties!
