Lavender

Last year my friend Todd stopped by my desk and offered a hearty handshake, as I celebrated 40 years of work in the same building. He asked me simply, "How did you do it?" That got me to thinking. How did I do it? At my retirement party Saturday night, I offered up some pearls of wisdom accumulated over the last 41 and 1/2 years of work. Over the next week or so, I'll pass along some of my Top 25. Let's start here:
I introduced it this way...
Welcome change.
Evolve.
Be flexible.
Adapt. 
Adapt.
Adapt.

How long will it take you to figure what I'm bidding farewell to?
Hints included everyday. 
hehehehehehehehe!

ps. BC in the Lou, annie's mom, Creech and of course Elenka cannot guess. They know.
Go ahead and GUESS!

  9. I guess English teacher...high school, but maybe middle school? I picture that after school, or before you wander around Portland taking photos, before going back to the country. You did mention you worked for the Portland Press Herald once, I believe. And you obviously love literature & like to write..Oh, & you & Elenka have seemed to have the great vacations that teachers have. Easy peasy?
