Genesis of a Retirement
Well Deserved Cuppa
Jack retired on Friday.
On Monday the electrician came to put in the fancy new light system in the loft. It was a gift from his work-mates.
On Tuesday Jack put up the table he’d bought from Ikea and moulded some ponds and hills.
Wednesday he put down the grass and the track.
Thursday he put up some houses and little people.
And on Friday he worked out how the signals and the points would work. .
On Saturday he prepared the engines.
On Sunday Jack set the trains going on the tracks. He saw that his creation was good.
