Bill Wolett Has Decided To Join The Retirees
Bill decided to join the space program and on Monday 12 February 1968 he did... Joining McDonnell Douglas Aircraft right after the buyout of Douglas Aircraft. 49 1/2 years later, we are here! They were exciting times!
Did You Know? - It was Monday, Bill signed on the dotted line, under the sign of Aquarius. The US president was Lyndon B. Johnson (Democratic). Famous people born on this day include Todd Fanning in Saskatoon and Chynna Phillips in Los Angeles.
In that special week of February people in US were listening to Love Is Blue (L'Amour Est Bleu) by Paul Mauriat and His Orchestra.
In UK The Mighty Quinn by Manfred Mann was in the top 5 hits. Five Million Years to Earth, directed by Roy Ward Baker, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1968 while The Confessions Of Nat Turner by William Styron was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. If you liked video games you were probably playing Hamurabi.

This group is always ahead of schedule... When it comes to eating!
We know why it is called a widow maker!
(Smoked bacon, hand-battered onion rings, avocado, double-thick Cheddar, mayo and red relish)
"We, on the other hand, ordered smaller items"
All smiles... Hate to see Bill depart the building
You can tell who retired already by the smile
on her face (and the white arrow)
Great stories are told of retirement adventures
Having fun with friends
Only a few more years!
What does he know?
Oh dear... These two together?
Loads of smiles... Happy for Bill!
"M-m-m-m-m-m... You're not going to be there next week?"
Sounds like an early morning office-raid is being planned!
Robin hates to see Bill leave the building
"I finally can do this!"
Things are taking a serious turn!
Thank you Chuck Gam for sponsoring the retirement party
Chuck gave a nice short tribute to Bill
"Wow! I was there almost 13,000 days! Maybe I should stay"
Everybody is amazed...
Most were not born when Bill joined McDonnell Douglas
Bill gave us a few short words
"Bill is so right!"
"Remember, I will be watching you!"
Everybody looks a little worried!
Heck of a party
Oh dear... Food is getting packed up... Must be working people
Thank you for putting this all together!
Remembering when... Sue has been retired ten years!
"It's easy once you get past day one!"
Saying goodbye... See you at work!
Hold on! Someone used the four letter word.... "WORK!"
"Really.... We have to go back to work?... Bummer!"
"You were just kidding, right?"
Parting is such sweet sorrow
