Default Hanging up the boots

Well folks today Iím hanging up the work boots. I been a loyal hardworking employee of southwestern bell/sbc/AT&T for 23 years. It seems like yesterday I began my career, and here I sit 23 years later. my body has been beat up. Two knee surgeries, arthritis in my back, feet, knees, and hands is and has taken a toll on my work duties. My mind says go go go but my body says otherwise. I plan on finding a part time job just to stay busy. I thank God for allowing me to provide for my family. Now I can spend more time at the lease and with my two beautiful granddaughters Thanks for reading. Have a blessed day

I’ve got 25 years in with SWB/AT&T. I’m eligible on November 11th.

If my body will hold up I’m gonna try and go 5 more before I call it quits.

Congratulations sir! And thank you for your service as "da telephone man"! Enjoy your next chapter!!

I'll be joining you officially Dec. 31. I've got 45 years in with the last 16 actually working for my own company which I have now sold back to my partner... I personally had reached a point where work was getting in the way of what I really wanted to do even though I have thoroughly enjoyed my career.
Hope you enjoy retirement so much that you stay excited about it and that the Lord will give you good health for many years so you can enjoy your new lifestyle!!
God Speed sir!
