I'm sad this morning. I just found out one of my long time co-workers was forced to retire (he is 67) due to severe memory issues. I guess it's been going on awhile and he's refusing to accept it, realize he is having issues. My boss said it was one of the hardest things she's had to deal with in letting him go. I'm tearing up just thinking about this for him. So so sad.
In other news, Mr Neighbor emailed (they always email each other) that one of his son's dogs (the big, barking one) had to be put down (he is old). Sad for the old dog, but can't say we are going to miss having him next door for half the year, every year.....then Mr. told dh that son and family will be coming mid June for who knows how long because he's supposed to use up a bunch of vacation time (he's military)....UGH UGH UGH! Why can't they spend their vacation time at their vacation cabin near where they live? LOL
But - the good news is he has to (apparently) use it up because they are getting transferred to another part of the country! That is great news for us - less visits, most likely. They won't be able to just drive over here in 7 hours. And that means their move to their property they bought here in this state has been deferred for the time being.
Mostly I'm just sad for my coworker. It's heartbreaking. He'd been with the company 17 years and was kind of an odd duck, but he was our odd duck.
