Enter the Honourable Judge's favourite tavern for a dram of Tittle Tattle. There's an ancient bandit in the corner, but I forget his name...

Tomorrow will be a strange day for me !!

Postby coppinpr » Fri Jan 30, 2015 11:25 pm

At 5pm tomorrow I will retire.
After 50 years in the same job,at the place. Straight from school at 15 and never a day unemployed, one and a half days off sick in all the 50 years, not a single Saturday off other than high days and holidays(even worked the morning of the day I got married). Started as the tea boy and end as the business owner (including the building) Enjoyed pretty much every moment...and not many can say that !!GOODJOB!!
!!><!! (thats me blowing my own trumpet)

Wait a minute.....something fishy here, methinks. I have seen some examples of your machine restorations, Paul. Where did you find the time to do that and run a business?

Congratulations on your retirement, Paul. May it be long and healthy!

Have a good one Paul.
Stay healthy, you don't want all those days of illness catching up with you.

Where will you go each day so that SWMBO doesn't realise you're not working? @&@

You lucky ******d !!GRUMP!!
I am very jealous.
I have years left! :(
My career path has been slightly different. I started at the top getting a B.A. !!ARTIST!!
I have then worked my way to the bottom!
I just hope I get to retirement, the Gov. keep moving the goal posts! !PRAY!!
I have always found the secret to happiness is doing as you are told. ^{}^

Enjoy it! It sounds as though you deserve it. Have a long, happy, healthy retirement.
!!CHEERS!!

Well done that man, your working life is a mirror image of mine. I bought my first business at the age of 27 and worked at it until I retired at 60. The only trouble was after working for 33 years 7 days a week ( newsagent) I felt guilty and bored not doing anything so went and got a part time job and here I am still working 3 days a week 15 years later. I wish you a long and happy retirement and hope you enjoy every minuet of it.
JRA.
