    It`s been a while since I have been on line here. Finally, after 30 yrs. of busting my :censored2:, sweating like Paul Newman in Cool Hand Luke, dodging raindrops, trudging through snow drifts, dealing with irate drivers and listening to the daily dribble coming from my management team`s mouths, I am retired. My last day of work was in early April and I have enjoyed my first full summer as a regular person. What a great summer it was. I honestly had a hard time remembering what day it was and still do right now! It`s fantastic! Here is one for ya. I am actually for the first time in 30 yrs, doing my Christmas shopping for everyone and loving it. I am going to have a real Christmas. WOW!!! I still can`t believe it. I am done!! Please stay safe and unified everyone and have a very, very Merry Christmas.
