A Job Really Well Done

Friday marked a fairly significant day in the life of the Weilands. While I have been documenting my journey learning a craft and finding a career on this very blog, my parents have been closing out their own careers and moving on to a life without alarm clocks.

On February 8th, 2008, my Dad retired from his management position at JCPenney. For my entire life and longer both Mom and Dad have been working at JCPenney, going along my idiotic Christmas wish lists as well as my life changing decisions with love and support, and I couldn't have asked for better parents. Now they can just kick back and relax.

I guess some other things happened in the news on Friday too, but I haven't really been keeping up. Doubt it was anything important.

Happy Retirement Dad. Love you.

I am jealous. I want to retire.

I can't believe I forgot to send your dad a congratulatory email - he's included those countdowns in his emails after all.

In any case, congrats, Don.

Also, I still think you should have gone with the countdown timer chain-piece thingy on your dad we talked about before. I guess this time it would have been flashing 0's or something.

Congratulations Mr. Weezy (Sr.) !

I wish I could retire...then again, I don't have a job. But retirement sounds ridiculously good.

I assume that you meant "YOUR dad" in your comment Johnny?

Unless of course there's something you're not telling me bro...
