23 Years

Today, I celebrated 23 years at my job! I was 19 when I started there as a secretary, then promoted to Director of Administration, and then Vice President a few years ago.

We went to Red Lob*ster for lunch and my co-workers gave me these cards and some cold, hard cash!

This card plays "The Best" by Tina Turner. Very cool!

My sister made this card for my Mom to give to me. Mom came in to volunteer 21 years ago and we hired her as our Director of Membership Services. She retired in June, came back to help us out when the girl I hired to take Mom's place quit in November, and just retired again yesterday!

It was a fun celebration! No one thought to bring a camera. =( But I'll have the memories with me.

Show and Tell Friday

It's been a while since I participated in Kelli's Show and Tell Friday.
I've been cleaning out and organzing and came across these books from my childhood that Mom saved for me!
The first is a Noah's Ark book.
It was given to me by my second cousins, Steve and Dennis, for Christmas 1966. I was a year and 5 days old! Steve and Dennis have three other siblings - Renee', Leslee, and Eric - all older than me. I wonder if they got me something else for Christmas that year?! LOL The book is in good shape!

These 3 books are still in good shape, too. I'm so glad to have all of them. I need to figure out a way to display them and any additional books I may 'find' as I'm cleaning out and organizing!

Thanks for looking at my Show and Tell! Be sure to head over to Kelli's to see all the other participants' Show and Tell goodies!
