One more day...............................

Yup, one more day to go. Actually I will work 1/2 dozen days in April and a 1/2 dozen others through out the year, but tomorrow is my last day on a full time basis. Suppose to have a lunch cook out for me tomorrow so it should be an interesting day.

I predict a lot of this summer may be at the 19 hole? Hope the wrist holds up to the stress! You would look funny with a straw in the beer!!!

Have a wonderful day tomorrow being roasted and perhaps toasted as well. Get a DD if need be!!!

Congrats - just try to keep that left arm a little straighter. Otherwise, the swing looks pretty smooth.

Congrats. I suspect you planned this date so you could get the best golf weather. Don't get so busy you forget us.

I do plan to take a trip out west later this year. In the mean time, a few quick trips to the coast(Gulf Shores area) and plenty of golf at my club.

Thanks for all the kind remarks.

Good going Dog!

- I envy your exit more than the one I had 5 years ago. My Boss told me my position was changing and I told him I was retiring. - I didn't get to enjoy the exit as long as you, but it was fun to see the look on his face!

Dog! You dawg!

Having been down that same wonderful road a couple of years ago, let me give you a word of advice: Ibuprofen. Take a couple in the morning before you head out for your final day. It will ease the pain in your cheeks from hours and hours of uncontrolled grinning.

Well done Dog. So will you miss getting up every day and dragging yourself into the office?

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

Just a follow up. Today was the 'official' final day. What a nice day it was. Had a real nice cookout for lunch and the office girls brought tons of snacks and deserts to eat. Several nice smaller gifts but the company gave me enough money to buy a new golf cart and fund a cruise to somewhere special.

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.
