Default 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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Haven't posted here in ages...I think it is only fitting to do so now. Congrats my friend!

And I can't wait to see how the walk-in turns out.
