Judy’s Retirement Dinner


Judy’s Retirement Dinner

You are close to leaving when you attend your “retirement dinner”. Last night was Judy’s turn. She is only a couple of days from ending her banking career. Judy had a great time sharing the evening with her SunTrust family. Even I was  invited!  All the ladies from Judy’s branch were in attendance as well as former employees and other SunTrust colleagues. Jackson’s On Lake Sinclair, was the venue for the festivities.

I gave Judy the option of writing this entry but she declined. She doesn’t like to be the center of attention normally. I think she enjoyed it last night a little bit though, mostly because she was with people who are very special to her. I have known most of them as long as Judy and I too know they are special ladies.

Note: As we were walking to the car the “Meandering Maddox’s” Nikon camera came loose from the carrying strap and fell four feet to the pavement with a thud! I only said damn once. Surprisingly, the only damage sustained was the battery door came off. I snapped it back on and the camera worked fine. That was a close one!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.


  1. Very nice! What a thoughtful gift of the license plate! Glad you camera is ok. I'd be lost without mine!

  2. What a nice retirement dinner they gave Judy. Sure glad the camera wasn't damaged, that would not have been a good way to start off your new life.

    I see the retirement clock is down to 9 hours!!!!!

    We got a nice little surprise in the mail yesterday. I didn't have a clue what it was, even reading the "21" on the cd (duh), but as soon as we put it in the cd player and I heard Adele, I knew exactly who sent it! Thank you so much!

  3. Congrats to Judy! Just found your blog thanks to Karen and Al. Enjoy retirement and workcamping! The wife and I can't wait to be down that path as well.
