Re: I Be Retired!

Al, whaddya bet you have at least one nightmare over the next two weeks involving your old business? One of the nice things about retirement is waking up and realizing it was just a bad dream instead of waking up and realizing you didn't dream it! :P

Enjoy!

Felicitations, Al.. welcome to the club!
I thought I might worry about my old business, but I'm amazed at how easily and completely I forgot all about it.

Re: I Be Retired!

Now that your are retired, can we make you a moderator so you can clean up our posts for typos and bad grammar? I find myself getting sloppy and I need help!

Re: I Be Retired!

Congrats Al...now the hardest thing you're going to have to do is pretend to no habla anglais the next time someone finds your home # and calls with a tech support question.

Now, by law, dont you have to change your name to TromboneAlWahoo?

Be careful Al. With all the armed conflicts going on in the world you don't want to take on a name that might create problems for you. 'AlWahoo' sounds like it might be Lesbianese or something.

Re: I Be Retired!

Thanks for all the cards and letters, guys.

I might actually practice less, since I'm no longer tied to the house.

You mean, if I were a moderator I could just fix typos, spelling mistakes, and poorly worded sentences to my heart's content? *Hmmm...
