No more mailman

My father retires as a United State Postal Carrier today. This circle postcard is the last in a series of 15 cards I sent him on the last fifteen days of work. I am extremely proud of his hard work and determination. I am very excited to see what the next chapter of his life will be.

It is a hard time to be retiring (retiring early in fact) as the economy is still slumping and work is harder and harder to find. Yet, when you are done doing a job... you are done doing a job. My dad has earned his retirement. Granted, he plans to get a part-time job in the future.

This blog post to commemorate and honor his hard work and congratulate him on a job well done.
