I just read our monthly company newsletter today.
My boss' service anniversary was this weekend - he founded the company(ies) 18 years ago on January 1, 1987. My five year service anniversary is coming up.
18 years ago, I was 12. In January of 1987 I was mid-way through my 7th grade basketball season, acing math and English, bombing civics, and hacking on my new Epson compy 386!
Sheesh. That puts it in perspective.
