Congratulations to Joe


Today, Mark and I would just like to say congratulations to Joe (Speedy to many of you) on his retirement.  In his blog, he said he was num and really didn’t know how he felt today.  Well, let me tell you, that after all these years of having been friends with his guy, he is downright excited and jumping for joy.  He just doesn’t know it yet. LOL

Mark and Joe were suppose to have retired together in 2001, but due to unforeseen  circumstances, Joe wasn’t able to follow through with his retirement at that time.  Well, the long awaited time has finally arrived and we are so excited for him.  Now, as I noted in the comment section of his blog….it is now time to “let the good times roll”. 

Life is short and it is now time to take the scenic route!  So Joe, when you catch your breath and realize that life has now dealt you the card you have waited on for so long, we are waiting for you to join the rest of us that wander aimlessly along the highways and byways looking for a new adventure around the next bend in the road.

Again, congratulations, and welcome to the world of the unemployed!  We love you and Sherri and thanks for the many years of friendship we have shared and we look forward to making and sharing many more memories with you both.


Mark and Dortha

We sure miss you guys was so good hearing from you yesterday. Sherri is working this morning but we are having dinner tonight with all of the crew that works with her. Take care and stay safe. Hope you knee is getting better.
