For those of you interested Only in TRAVEL, I (Jack) wrote the blog between MARCH 2010 and October 2010 during our travels west. We saw the most beautiful places and had the best time in our big truck and little trailer. See Blog Archive below.

Quick Blog About an Important Milestone

My eldest son, John, retired after over 35 years at Kimberly Clark. Then, within a month, he and his wife, Lisa, bought a new home and sold their old home. These two don't fool around when it comes to getting things done!!

I can't believe how fast life goes by. It seems like yesterday that he was born. I am so proud of him, and so happy that he found the love of his life and has three beautiful daughters. Retirement will be good for John because he has so many hobbies and interests. He's so likable that the house surveyor offered him a job, if he wanted to work. Lisa has two years to go, as a teacher, then on to more beautiful times, together. They are a one of a kind couple. Sorry. Had to brag a bit.

Just a few pictures to mark this wonderful time in their lives. The last one, in my eyes, tells the story of their life together=happiness. I'm so grateful.

This picture and the next are at our little retirement celebration dinner together as a family. Unfortunately, I was the photographer and didn't get great pictures, but we all had a wonderful time.

This picture says it all!


  1. Love those little boy pictures. Congrats on your retirement, John. It's a great life. A very happy couple.

  2. Looks like the Photographer has a lot to be proud of as well. A great looking Couple. May they have many happy years together in Retirement.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. What a handsome couple both then and now. They should love this post. Happy Retirement John. Who doesn't love retirement?


Thank you for visiting. Have a great day.
