No not my age, - LOL! - but years of service for Manitoba Agriculture (uninterrupted)!!!
OMGG, today at work I just received a "heads up" email to mark my calendar for a long term service award event planned for May 3rd and I'll be there with bells on my toes, so to speak. Even if I have to drive back from Morden's Quilt Show/Aurora's Quilt Retreat planned for that same time!!! No way I'm passing that up - wonder if it's just a certificate, plaque or if we'll all get a gift? Guess I'll have to wait and see.
OH MY!!! It just dawned on me that next year, August 13th, I will have put in 40 years of work - nonstop for child bearing/raising, secondments, leave without pay, etc!!! Yes sir, my years are accumulating and retirement is more and more in the picture and appealing! WOW!!!
OK this calls for some reminiscing! I found one "group" photo of the Motley Crew of the Economics Branch and cropped myself out of it and then the more recent one!
