sometimes, though, things don't always work out as planned; so, a new plan was laid, a new date set, a secret still to be kept, & finally, the countdown began! (cute idea here that was ready and waiting) The jar was filled with one of Granddaddy's favorite candies ~ Three Musketeers ~ so that he could take one with him each morning to help dream away the days as he counted down.
Happy Retirement, Granddaddy
Finally, a little happiness to mix with alot of sadness on this last day of the month . . . after all these years, we still miss you so much, Gran and Pop!!!
