Retirement
« on: June 11, 2014, 03:29:27 AM »
I called the company that handles my retirement package and told them I wanted to start drawing my pension.
The lady asked if I wanted the package sent through the mail (which could take up to 28 days to get) or if I would like it e-mailed to me.
I selected e-mail; she then informed me that e-mail might also take 28 days to get to me. She was telling the truth! ::)

Wow are that surely is snail mail.

OH retirement.  It scared me for about 24 hours then I got over it and haven't looked back.  Enjoy yours Scott.  BTW:  Still checking for shirts.  Someday you will get a package but not yet.

Guys I havenít fully retired yet. Another company is buying us so come August they said that we can re-apply for our positions. Iím just getting my ducks in a row.

On another note I am fixing to have the house resided so I called my Grandson and told him that I would be keeping the boat at his house for a couple of weeks while the work was being done. His answer; sure as long as I can use it! Heís 15 yrs old but heís got everything figured out already.

Dane I do appreciate you looking.
Jack, my Worm Shack hat is looking awfully ragged.
Carter; I have never seen a man smile so much! ;D

Scott it is not an inconvenience for me to look as every time I venture into Springfield the outlet is one of my stops and the shirts are right next to the front door.  This year they over bought on small and xtra small.  They have hundreds of them.

About the only thing that will bother me is the winter and staying inside. I am not much on cold weather!
I donít think that I will ever fully retire; might just work for Loweís (part time) in the electrical department. Had a friend that worked for them after he retired and he loved it.

Scott, getting your ducks in a row is a never ending thing. Ha ha. Good for you. I retired in 03 and only worked mowing for 3 seasons since then. Most folks who retire seem to bee too busy to go back to work.  It sounds like your grandson knows how to line up his ducks too. Since I arrived here in Portland, TN I am very , very happy to be here. I much prefer the cooler weather to the hot muggy stuff of Florida. I didn't leave anything there. I hope things go well for you with the siding project.
