Colonial,  Funny Little Wars,  Praise

The time has come…

… Which sounds a bit ominous, but is, in fact, celebratory.

Throughout their childhood, both my boys would ask me — since I almost never “played” with the little people I painted or the various houses I built for them — why, then, did I have them? My inevitable answer was that I was saving them for when I was retired. Well, after 34 years of teaching kindergarten, as of last Friday, I have officially retired.

The Royal Marines have assembled for a parade in my honor. The Guards ensure appropriate decorum from all in attendance.

 

 

I do, in fact, drive a Jeep Wrangler, though mine is of a slightly older vintage and is red. This one is reserved for parade purposes only.

Next post shall reveal my (finally!) painted Backyard Battalion.
