Tomorrow is Mr. Purron's last day of work...

...after nearly 34 years on the job! Here we go. I'm so proud of him especially after attending his official send off plus the lunch his coworkers arranged. He's feeling good

(yeah, it's one you have to double click on to see on you tube...worth it though)

Congratulations!

Now that you'll both be retired, just tell him to stay out of your face and y'all will get along just fine!

Congratulations Purron. Now you can both get away from it all more often. Do that soon or you may want to have separate vacations!

Don't worry. DH and I are still in love

Brief history:
- married at 19 years of age
- put each other through college
- lived below our means and saved up
- worked hard at good paying careers
- did tons of volunteer service in the community together
- retired before 56
- looking forward to the future

Not rocket science. Work, live and love life to the fullest while recycling dryer sheets
