Off for the Rest of His Life

Yesterday my family went to the new local restaurant Diva to celebrate my Dad’s retirement. I haven’t chronicled the story leading up to this because it’s not mine to tell, but I will just say that had I written about it it would have made a compelling human interest story. There was no small amount of stress in the house for the last few years leading up to this, so we’re all glad it’s finally over.

Dad had a wonderful moment yesterday in the butcher’s. Being a friday, the man serving him asked if Dad was off for the weekend. "Actually," Dad replied, "I’m off for the rest of my life."
