Today is a milestone in my life?
Today, June 20th is my 60th birthday and my 5th year of retirement from the Walt Disney Company.
Looking back, It is hard to believe that I am now 60 years old. Were has all the time gone?
Let's see, high school from 1966 thru 1970, 18 years old. U.S.Army from 19 thru 21. College from 21 thru 26. Working at Lucky supermarkets from 21 thru 29. C.H.P. academy 29 to 30. Married from 30 to 54. Disneyland from 29 to 55. Retirement from 55 to 60. There it is, my life up to this day. Wow.
OK now about my retirement. Today 5 years ago was my last day at Disneyland Club 33. Can remember when I started that first day. Mark Twain as an attraction host,then to the Shooting Gallery,Tree House and finally Jungle Cruise, all in the first year. (12-12-81 to 4-4-82). Then I was transferred to Club 33 as a busboy,lead, then bartender.(4-5-82 to 6-20-07). On my last day, most of the Cast Members of Club 33 and management gave me a going away party at Club 33. Was given a Club 33 plate signed by most of my fellow Cast Members,cake and ice cream and crystal Micky Mouse Ears. At exactly 5:33 p.m. my then wonderful girlfriend and I walked out of Club 33 holding hands.
Then on July 25th, 2007, I left Mr Stox (14 years as a night bartender) and moved to Pleasant Hill, California on August 1st, to be with my girlfriend and her two amazing kids. Sorry to report, by July of 2008, this was a done deal. I decided to stay in Pleasant Hill,Ca. and as of this writing,I am still here on my 60th birthday.
Life is what you make of it.....Dr Lee 60 and having fun(an single,nice)
