**No Gold Watch For Me, Thank You!**

Coins-United States | Kepi

Hi everyone! It's been a crazy few months for me, as I have been working and getting ready for RETIREMENT! ; ) It's amazing how much there is to do... Documents, forms, endless phone calls, etc... And then finally I get to walk into my boss's office and say "I'm outta here. 8/31/2020"!!! As a retirement gift, my Husband presented me with this beautiful 2020 $50 Gold Buffalo Coin, graded by NGC MS70 . As some of you know I love buffalo themed coinage so what could have been more perfect! No gold watch for me... haha ; )

Great job Kepi ! Congrats on retirement. I've been retired about 5 years now and am waiting on my better half. She still has about 5 years to go. Nice looking coin also! You're lucky to have such a nice better half!

That's a heck of a lot better than a gold watch! Congrats on being able to finally being able to turn in the keys.... Can't happen soon enough for me, but I got two more years to go or so.

Please, please, don't tell my wife. I treat her like the Queen she is, but....I've never gotten her a "Gold Watch". lol. Kepi that is just sweet! I remember Mar 2017, my last day, yep, all the promises you make yourself, well, I kept most of em. Looking forward to seeing you on blogs more as well and take care of that husband, as my grandfather would say "That feller's a keeper". Later!

That is wonderful Kepi, I still remember the last day of February 2018 when I left work forever. The months before, I had been about as useless as a human can be but it still felt bittersweet when it happened. Your Hubby sounds like a peach of a guy, make sure he takes you to the next big coin show in Sin City. BTW, we expect much blogging from you in the future, you know longer have that pesky job to interrupt your blogging momentum. Finally, enjoy your retirement, you have earned it!!!!
