    It's with a lot of mixed feelings that I'm going to work today at all! I am so happy to get away from the corporate lifestyle, but finding it very hard to leave the many people that I've known over the years! Some friendships will last forever (yes, with my "sisters" Dorian and Phyllis). I will even miss my gay boys - not to mention a couple of overly handsome boy toys (my eye candy). The hardest part of this is leaving my boss - the greatest boss one could ever ask for. Jim, he reminds me of you - his name is Jim also - A fresh mouthed young snot that I've worked for the past 7 years. You call me bonehead, he calls me doughhead. But I know with both of you, I can come to you with a problem or for advice and you will both drop what you're doing to help out! You are my sons, but I will always think of Jim as my "other" son! As for retirement itself, I think I will now have more time to kick my grandchildren's little butts into shape! Thanks for the good wishes!

    Well, Joan, Congratulations on your retirement. What wonderful words you said about your boss; he should be honored.

    But, the statement I left......Don't bet on it. :happy2:
