Re: Calling it a day

You will be missed--for sure.
Put your feet up--and kick back.
You've earned it. All the best.

Fair--and ODORLESS!--winds to you all!
Enjoy your retirement Peg and thanks for all the great advise.

Re: Calling it a day

Thank you all for the VERY kind words! They make it even more difficult to leave than it already was, 'cuz with RARE exceptions, everyone here is an adult...you have no idea how rare that is today.

Hannah, I wish it were a typo! Otoh, 70 is the new 50 so I'm not over the hill yet!

Sy...when that Crown Head acts up, email me before doing ANYTHING!

As my last "unofficial" act, I'll try to sort out why Glenn thinks he needs to descale his holding tank and what he actually does need to do...and then I'm gonna tiptoe out the back door.

It really has been great!
