Been retired a looong time. But, for some reason, I still look forward to fridays. Force of habit, I guess.

Last time I checked the calendar, Sunday was the first day of the week.

It will be soon.   Next Monday is my last one at where i've been since 1977.   It's easy to see where things are going when they talk about budget reductions and the only thing IN the budget is headcount.

BTDT Pete early in '09...Friday the 13th in fact...worse part for me that day was telling all my direct reports at that location they were going to be laid off in two weeks...I already knew my fate, but didn't share it with any of them for over  a week and only then when they asked during a staff meeting. They just assumed I wasn't impacted. I pulled every string I could for them to no avail.

 

Later than year, while still on lay-off, I got a phone call (real personal) from Corporate H-R saying my position had been eliminated. I knew then it was time to bail...fortunately I had the needed "points" (service time + age) to retire...turned out to be one of the smarter decisions I've ever made.

 

It's scary when you first do it, but it will get better...trust me. Pulling for you...if I can help in any fashion, don't hesitate to PM me.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
