Happy New Year . We’re not old lol


PWC1 - love that attitude 😀 I’m helping with onboarding our latest group of college grads, certainly feel a wee bit old with that crew 👍


What aches and pains? Maybe I’m just lucky.

Definitely lucky - over 50 and no aches and pains is fairly unusual (non scientific study amongst my friend group)

I got enough for both of us.

Happy New Year Oldies!

Haha! Hoping mine stay the same as well!
Happy New Year!

Oh yeah but I always use it as a mentor situation where some of the youth rubs off lol

My feet and knees hurt but I don’t have to go to work anymore! Yep
