mike’s last day of work


Tomorrow Mike will be a free man… at least free from work. Paid work, that is. He’s got lots of plans for work around the house and yard, but he’ll be free to take a break any time he wants to, eat when he’s hungry (not on an arbitrary schedule), watch TV if he so chooses. Freedom will be very sweet after more than 38 years of doing four clock rings a day and being at the mercy of managers who…. well, I won’t go there.

Today saw the last time he’d pack up his lunch, walk through the gate,

get into the car and head down the 14 (for work, that is).

It’s been a long haul.

He said he’d be singing “Take This Job and Shove It” on the way there and “18 Wheels and a Dozen Roses” on the way home.
