Sitting in the same boat (none), all the junk I needed to sell sold (Lots more I could sell will likely go to charity), only the house holding me here. But that looks like the hardest thing to get rid of.

I'm 4 to the third power plus 3 and finally retired. Hopefully to cruise south Florida, keys and Okeechobee, etc. Weather here beats Pittsburgh in the wintertime. Good luck with your new boat!

Don't want to tax them too much, the smell of burned rubber is too pungent.

Re: Confess Now: How Many Here Are Above the Double Nickels ?

I'm dead on the entry number. I reckon I don't feel it yet, especially considering my habit of doing things like hopping over a 7' foot drop to the sidewalk below, just because there are no steps down to it. Afterward, I'm walking into the shop thinking "Ya ain't 25 anymore....".

Been to the site, and will be in Pahokee, at least the first winter.

I read that the wall blocks the lake view and the slips still receive a lot of wave action from the lake. Please tell me your opinion/experience. It sound like a great place to spend a few days perhaps, being relatively brand new and uncrowded.

Re: Confess Now: How Many Here Are Above the Double Nickels ?

Having worked many years in the computer business I started counting my age in hexadecimal when I turned 48. It worked ok for a while but now when I tell someone I'm 3b they just look at me funny.

Re: Confess Now: How Many Here Are Above the Double Nickels ?

Well I tell people that;
I was born in the first half of the last century,
That I'm 30 with 40 years of experience of being 30.
And old enough to know better but reall don't care.
Oh! And that I'm a Monsenior that is am a mon and am a senior.
And set in my Mon'ly ways...
Any questions??
