Congratulations to my dad who enjoyed his first official day of retirement today – I don’t think the weekend counts since he wouldn’t normally be working on a weekend anyway. Also he would not be working in the summer holidays either, so I guess his retirement could really start in September.
My dad has been working my whole life. I am sure that supporting a family of 6 on one income is no small feat, and he did it. At age 64, he has retired from teaching grades 3 and 4 at Oaklands Elementary for well over 2 decades. Before that, he was supporting the family on a substitute teacher income. I don’t know how that is even possible. He deserves a bit of a rest, though I am sure he will not be idle for very long, if at all.
congrats to Mr. Greenwell!! Retirement has suited my parents rather well – my dad retired 3 years ago, and my mom 1 year ago.
Maybe he’s secretly a millionaire and, um, it’s a secret. Like maybe it’s a witness protection thing! Yeeaaaah, like maybe he gave a D to a student whose Dad was in the mob and the Dad was gonna whack him so they um, like, had to hide him and pretend like he wasn’t a millionaire but deposited money in his bank account every month so that he could assume the humble mantle of a school teacher and blend in better.
Or maybe he’s just frugal.
(I like my story better because it involves the mob and heavy Italian accents.)
Happy retirement, Davin’s Dad!
Congrats to Davin’s dad, the head of a pretty cool family.
Congratulations Mr Greenwell!
Hurray! Congrats to your Dad! He sounds like he really DESERVES it! 🙂
