Quarter Century
« on: December 31, 2018, 09:59:58 PM »
Today I completed a quarter century of blissful retirement! It was absolutely the best of the three plus quarter centuries I have lived through. With my current state of health I doubt that I will add much to the total but that isy OK. I have had a fabulous life and if I had it to do over I would not change a thing.

This month was also the tenth anniversary of my joining the CZ Forum. It has been the icing on the cake. There is not a greater group of people on the web than this group. Thanks to all that have helped me enjoy the past ten years.

I'm also retired and "living the dream". Congrats to you, sir !

The only difference in our thinking is that I'm sure there must be a "greater group" of people out there....

...but that group simply hasn't allowed me to join !  But, until my engraved invitation arrives, you're very correct. This is a great group of people.

Joe....first thought that came to mind when I read you post was.... what wonderful positive sentiment you expressed to start off the New Year. Thank you for that......it made my day (and it's early!). Congrats on your quarter century, and I hope that 'health' thing doesn't get in the way of you enjoying many more years. Coincidentally, today is 'day 1' of my own 'retirement'.....of course, I don't know yet what that word means, but I'll figure it out someday....maybe :-)
