May 4, 2021 - Retired!
41 11/12 years with Siemens. Had a full health checkup before I pulled the trigger and everything was perfect. Almost 64 and don't have a single prescription, never stayed in a hospital (well, birth !) - I feel lucky and decided to retire while everything was good, covid was winding down and summer was just about to start. My wife (Jackie) stopped working a few years ago - and we survived a year of me working from

School Stories, Teachers Who Inspired You:

My physics teacher - I cant remember his name, seemed very old, but had a good way of teaching things hands on. Shooting the monkey out of the tree (actually a coffee can), using a laser in the hallway with mirrors, Hologram. Some cool stuff, for the early 70s.

Chemistry class. The two guys next to me mixed sugar and sulfuric acid in a beaker. Don't try this at home!. It created a giant carbon "snake" growing out the beaker, so one of the guys put it out the window on the ledge. But that was also the smoking area (outside) and the "narc" came in and told the teacher.

A science class I was in, woman teacher. The room had a bunch of taxidermy animals around the room. I put a stuffed squirrel into a girls large purse while she was in the bathroom. She screamed out in the middle of class and the teacher just glared at me...

Patty - good to see you check in!!
I was in Lake Geneva this summer and thought about driving up there with your Dad, and he had a special old Jaguar in the garage up there.. Am I remembering that right?
Hope you are doing well.
Doug
