The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

The i's and t's. . .

Dear Ones,

It's Official. . .

the i's have all been dotted. . .and the t's have all been crossed. . .

                                        "Mr. Ed" has retired!!!




Nearly seventeen years ago, "Mr. Ed" began working for the Kansas Department of Transportation in South East Kansas! Ten years ago, he transferred to the K.D.O.T. Hillside Shop in North Wichita. Today was officially his last day!




He was honored with a delicious and divinely decorated cake by one of his co~workers!
Donna made a work of art and of heart!






Making this day even more memorable, he was showered with a clock, cards and gifts!



Surrounded by family. . .










co~workers present and past. . .








all made this celebration a culmination of years of service come to a well  deserved end!




Supportive family by his side, we all look forward to spending much more time together! For now, "Mr. Ed" has one of the best gifts of all. . .the gift of time!



Happy Retirement. . . "Mr. Ed"!


Until next time. . .

Congratulations to both of you.
No more of those cold winter nights out on the road! I hope the people you left behind do as good a job as you did.
Maybe this winter will give you time to get ready for fishing this spring.
Best of luck to you-all.
