November 2 -- Party Day

God gave us a beautiful Sunday afternoon for an open house to celebrate DH's retirement. He enjoyed the company of 30+ family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers, and now has claimed this lounge chair on the deck as his own. Even the deer came out of the woods to join the celebration.

Emily made a yummy buffalo spicy chicken dip. It was great with chicken & celery sticks.

Bethany brought stuffed mushrooms. I'll have to get her recipe and post it too!

Quips about Retirement:

Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save. ~Will Rogers, Autobiography, 1949

When men reach their sixties and retire, they go to pieces. Women go right on cooking. ~Gail Sheehy

Don't underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering. ~Pooh's Little Instruction Book, inspired by A.A. Milne
