My husband retired more than 7 years ago, but in Dec 08, he went back to work part time as a host on the Frontrunner, a heavy rail commuter train. His schedule often gets him home at 2:00 AM. I always leave a note for him before I go to bed, sometimes with a little treat, and he leaves me a note when he comes in. I find it in the morning with two pieces of chocolate. This morning's note was extra cute....you can see he added two mints so the candies looked like eyes, and he drew a nose and mouth to make a little smiling face. Left click to see it better.
