October 16, 2000 -- the day that I started my current job .......
About 3 years ago, my company started having an Employee Anniversary Recognition luncheon to recognize those employees who were celebrating their "5" anniversaries (5, 10, 15, etc). The lunch is at the Crescent Club and is a very nice luncheon. They also have a gift list (with values varying by years of service) that the employee gets to choose their gift from.
So, today, I was appreciated at lunch with 28 other people who had an anniversary this year. It was so very yummy -- and a reminder that I really do work for a great company. I can't imagine having the perks, benefits, flexibility, etc that I have now anywhere else. (I remind myself of that on icky days!)
So, here is a photo of my new glass bowl:
