Back to the VFW
Anyone who attended the 3rd annual remembers the VFW here in Bennington.
Well Friday night the Company lead by the War Department threw me a surprise Retirement Party at the same place. I'll get some pictures up.
I was completely surprised. Old employees that once worked for us were there. All my guys where there with thier ladys. My brother was even up from Florida. Several of my suppliers where there. A man I was apprentised to when on my first civilian job was there. Old customers and friends, totally unbelieveable. The shop put together volumes of scrapbooks of pictures that I saved forever. I do like to party as you know so it was a super super night to remember.
Of course they gave me a Roast. Where do these people come up with these stories???????ESSAYONS

Congrats retired executive. Did you give yourself a golden parachute?
You do realize that once you cash that first S.S. check, you are a geezer.A Diamond is just a piece of coal, that made good under pressure!
