The theme of the party for the 5 who are retiring was "Oh the Places You'll Go" and the books were there to sign for each retiree.This is Miss P and Peggy. They have taught and coached together for a long time. In fact Miss P could have retired last year, but she waited for them to be able to retire together. Debbie is Peggy's partner in crime at school and in Katy. When I walked in Peggy yells out, this is Nancy, she is my partner in crime!!! Then when Dena came in Peggy yells out, this is my Sunday School teacher.
After the reception Peggy, Bill and Jaime took us on a tour of the school and Peggy's wonderful office off the dressing room. Nothing like the smell of sweat, tennis shoes and damp towels to bring back a lot of good memories of playing volleyball in high school.
Then we all ate at Hasta la Pasta and Bill, yes Bill, regaled us with some really funny stories. He was on a roll. Bill and Peggy headed home and Dena and I headed to the Katy Mills Mall. I had a coupon for Polo and Roy has been asking me to buy him some new dress slacks. Only found one pair but I found some Ralph Lauren sheets deeply discounted and difficult to pass up.
I will have to post later on other happenings from the weekend, but wanted to share Peggy's great happiness and joy to be retiring from work, but continue living a fun and full life. I am so happy to share my friend with you tonight.
