Gary Celebrates and Gracie Makes a Life Changing Decision

Today, Gary turns the big


And now, his dream of a PENSION from his former work place of almost 29 years, BETHLEHEM STEEL,  has become reality!  

Pension + 60 = Retirement?

Well,  Maybe semi-retirement.  I have a couple of  years yet and I don't believe he wants to retire 100% without me.  But in the meantime, Gary is a pretty happy camper!!

Dear Mom,

I've worked hard at watching the house all these years and finally, yesterday, I found myself to be quite tired.  Today I am re-tired, so I'm going on the road with Dad.  He says he is re-tired too.  We will send gifts.  

Love, Gracie


  1. Wonderful!!! Now, what are the plans?

  2. It's a great moment. Know the feeling and what a treasure. Here's to many happy years of new horizons.

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. ENJOY! Have fun with your papa GRACIE.

  4. BIG congrat's to Gary!! Woo Hoo!!
    BTW, I think Gracie is onto something. :-)

  5. Hi Gracie and Bobby; Please tell Gary Happy Birthday for us. Retirement is wonderful. We are just heading home tomorrow and start our move to our new house. Glad we got to rest up for two weeks.

  6. Congratulations to Gary and happy retirement. Hope there are lots of fun things planned. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. Happy Birthday, Gary!

    One is never as busy as when one becomes 'retired', take it easy, now, and don't overdo it! :D
