View Full Version : So I didn't go to work today

Graduated from a bit odd and strange to being officially eccentric last Wednesday.
Went to the bank today and they were really nice to me.
Jane said she was proud of me for the first time in 40 years last week.
Turned 60 on Sunday. I think that officially makes me old like Peter.
Told Friends and out of the loop family about the ascension to eccentric at the birthday party.
Called a contractor to build a walk in in the basement ASAP.
Decided to add a smoking area - WTF gotta be able to indulge. A walk-in without a place to smoke would be like having a Harem without the equipment to take it out for a ride occasionally.
For some odd reason I was happy for Tom but secretly, since I'm competitive, pissed he retired before me.... and envious he gets monthly checks.
Called Larry and he answers from Cuba... WTF - I need to do that.
Chatted with Michael and he reminds me he owes me money - (I love it when he does) So sends me a check for something I couldn't remember, and cigars that would make Eric envious and calling MO to look for more.
Thinking I should get a haircut - kind of looking like JPH.
Julian - I have an appointment today so .. check.

Maybe I'll smoke a cigar today and think about how to spice up the herf a bit this year.

Nice to finally have the time.... got to check on the herf schedules so many cigars and math that means 30 a day based upon that pesky life expectancy thing. :)

Happy birthday Dave, glad things are going well :)

Eccentric is good! Great to hear from you, Dave!

Hope you got that birthday present you're always wanting...

03-07-2017, 10:45 AM
Glad you popped in, Old Man. :)

03-07-2017, 11:06 AM
Dave, there you are..........
You're still not old yet :tu
Oh BTW I think I'll beat you to retirement too.

Nice to have an update Dave, and happy belated birthday.

I didn't go to work today either. I've been forgetting to do that for the last 8 or 9 years. Too busy. Today I'm scheduled to go empty the garage ash tray. Think I'm supposed to take the wife out to dinner tonight at one of the casinos too. Don't know how I ever found the time to work before......

First of all, no one is old like Peter.

Secondly, happy birthday, Dave!

I'm sure your good friend Bobalou is somewhere celebrating your birthday as well! :lr

So good to "see" you, Dave, looking forward to seeing you for reals soon.

While I may have gotten to retirement first, I would say you got there best. :)

03-07-2017, 02:47 PM
Sounds like the eccentric life is starting to treat you right!

03-07-2017, 02:52 PM
Happy Birthday, Dave!:banger:D:tu You're Still Younger Than Me!:r:D So When "DO" You Plan To Retire? Me: I'm Trying To Make 2 More Years When I'll Be 67!:noon

Congratulations on full eccentricities, Dave!

03-07-2017, 03:10 PM
Congrats, Mr Klugs! Looking forward to hanging out at the Shack this year and smoking crusty old cigars with you... hope your birthday month (it's a thing) is spectacular.

03-07-2017, 05:43 PM
Yay! Glad to see you around Dave. Who is keeping an eye on Sam or did he do a similar trick?

More time for cigars is always a good thing.

Congrats on retirement. I hope it treats you as well as you treat it.

Happy birthday Dave, and congratulations on your retirement.

And eccentricity--or even just marching to your own drummer--is a good thing. :ss

HBD big guy! Congrats on retiring and congrats on making it to 60. Sixty, when anal retentive takes on a whole new meaning. Now that you're retired though you can stay in the bathroom as long as you like....��

Hell, I've got suits that are 60 years old! Happy Birthday and enjoy your retirement. I'm on my third and am now teaching college full time.

I'll teach until they carry me out or I go senile and my students rat me out!

03-09-2017, 09:28 AM
So how have the first few days of dinner at 2:30PM been? :D

03-09-2017, 11:29 AM
Happy belated birthday! Sounds like you've got the right amount of eccentricity to keep things interesting.

03-09-2017, 12:58 PM
Welcome to lost in space, Dave!!!
Happy Birthday, too!!! :tu

I can only imagine what the walk-in will look like. No I can't imagine.
