Gold watches are overrated, anyway.

My retirement reception was tonight at a downtown pub. The local TV news station showed up. People bought me too many drinks. I received fabulous gifts including a pair of gorgeous earrings from my favorite gallery, lovely flowers, a child-size kick board for my "adult swim" sessions, a beer koozie from the library (which is funny enough) and a certificate of recognition from the Society for the Prevention of Mental Health, circa 1980, which I will hang proudly in my home office. I love my Downtown Lawrence peeps. I'll really miss them. Three days to go. Emotions are mixed.

Oh, honey. I think you've just become an Icon. Congratulations. I'm kvelling over here in Sherman Oaks. I'd like a copy of the certificate for my home office, BTW.

Thanks. I love it when you kvell. It's a roller coaster, I tell ya!
