My Diploma..............

#1 Post by .45colt » Thu Jun 13, 2019 11:33 pm

I finally made it. A degree in Hard Knocks............A Butcher Workman...... got My pension after working for 46 years and 9 months.....saw the retail meat business go from hours of back breaking labor to being run by mostly bosses who have no idea what it takes to get meat cut and in the counter for sale. Free at Last. Thank You Lord for the strength. My Wife is a Saint to have put up with Me being gone 9 to11 hours a day working a variable schedule. I'm one of the Lucky ones who have made it this far. now every day is a vacation day. :D

I just turned 54, and have 18 more to go. At 72 I can get full retirement from social security. My Walgreens fund is slowly losing every year. I cannot count on it.

Congrats! I'm coming on 12 years since I started my new career as a 'Gentleman at Leisure' and I can say that I've enjoyed every minute of it.
