I have to admit, I was shocked with all the kindness. I have always got along fine with my boss and co-workers, but never expected all this. I wish everyone could experience the kind of day I just had.
Sounds really nice. Good going Dog!

Congratulations on your ER! It sounds like you had a perfect send off. I hope I can experience the same in the not-too-distant future.

Re: One more day...............................

DOG52, congratulations on your RE.
Good luck with your future plans, which I'm sure will involve that little white ball.
It looks like you had a fine send-off too. You seem to have done it right and are reaping the benefits. Enjoy it!

At the risk of sounding like Unclemick, heh heh heh.

Yeah, not much chance State will treat me very well in sports. Wait a minute..........didn't MSU beat Kentucky in the SEC basketball tournament a few weeks ago?
