My Dad's retirement party was today. It was such a bittersweet moment for him. He truly had no intentions of retiring yet. Unfortunately with the atmosphere at Caterpillar these days when he was offered the buyout that had been extended to everyone 55 and older (Dad is 69) it just seemed like the best of the available crappy options. He is considering doing some part time work and as my Mom says she has a honey do list that could choke a horse. The party went remarkably well. There was approximately 75 people in attendance. The most important thing is that Dad was pleased with it.
