40 Years

This past weekend I went to a Two Wacky Women Retreat in Laguna Woods, Ca. These are fun and relaxing quilting retreats put on by two friends of mine, Robin and Marilyn, please take time to check out their website .

In past posts I have written that when I go away on these retreats my husband, Carlos, more than likely will have a surprise waiting for me when I get home. Well, this weekend was no different, not only did I go on retreat but on Thursday, 5/20/10, I reached 40 years working for the same company. That's hard to do these days...but I did it!!!

Carlos knows how much I love clocks, not sure why I do but I do and have many in my home, some that work and some don't. This one is so cute, it will play a melody on the hour. You can set it to 6 Classic or 6 Hymn, or 6 Christmas. It has a light sensor, so will shut off automatically at night. It's just beautiful!!!!

Not sure this time, if it was that I was on retreat or the 40 years of services, but love my gift. I'm going on another retreat in July...what will my next surprise be???

Thank you Carlos, I love you and my clock!!!


  1. What a treat - a wonderful gift from your husband and a wonderful retreat with my sister and Marilyn. What did you work on at the retreat?

  2. Very special indeed Pam. You lucky girl you. And, congratulations on 40 years at the same place of employment. You are so right, very unusual.

  3. I think this makes up for the previous paint change :) It's really nice...lucky girl, lucky guy.
