Annie Milner retires after 85 years at Dayton’s. You’ve got to read this story. This woman just retired from Dayton’s the local department store that eventually became the Target Corporation after 85 years of employment. No, not at 85, 85 years with the company! She’s decided to pack it in at 101. I didn’t think that happened anymore. I’m amazed that they let her stay. I guess it’s a tribute to the company. She sounds like she had a great time. It reminds me of a story I heard not long ago about a farmer who decided to stop bailing his own hay because he didn’t want to invest in those new fangled bailing machines that make the big round bails. Didn’t like the payoff time. He was 103!
I personally will retire about 2 seconds after I can financially swing it. Which will probably be sometime after my 100th birthday, given my current financial state.

  1. to me, it’s interesting to see anyone’s “ramblings” no matter how old or young they are. there’s no limit to writing if you’re spirited at heart

    Thanks for your comments. I appreciate it.

  2. i can’t imagine living to 85, let alone working for 85 years.  maybe she loved it, but i kind of feel sorry for her.  got to wonder if she had much of a life outside of work.

  3. I’m already retired. I have no money or anything, but I’m not techincally working.  Oh, or is that unemployed? Whatever.

  4. Well then everything evens out, doesn’t it?  God, you really have to love what you’re doing to stick around that long.  I mean, I love what I do, but you won’t catch me doing it even into my 60s!
