Thank you for all your years of service. Congratulations on your retirement.

Don't let the "Honey Do" list wear you out! ;)

Colonel,

The initial "honey do" list is all mine!  I've got to clean our our basement storage room, then my den (and find my guns again), and then convert my daughter's bedroom into my new office. 

Of course, the House CinC expects me to to take care of policing up the house and performing KP, so that will also keep me busy when not performing manual labor.   ;D

The good news is that I can now sleep in until 0700 every morning!!!  That is luxury after waking up at 0430 or so for the last 40 years.  I'll take it.

Congratulations, my friend!  It's quite a change when you finally hang up that uniform once and for all (unless you're like me, and spend the next 16 years of your life doing the same thing as a "civilian"!!!!!).

Enjoy your retirement...it's well-deserved!

Get rid of old stock; Restock; sample for quality on new stock; (resupply new stock as needed . . .)

Thanks Jake.  Actually, I hung up the uniform 11 years ago though I found myself going into harm's way more as a "civilian" than I ever did on active duty.

A hearty Well Done!  Welcome to the ranks of the retired!  Glad that you made it through safely!  I really hope that you can make it to the NCOWS Convention.  Probably the last one in KC.  We will have a mighty fine time.

Plus, there is the annual Whiskey Tasting Friday night after the steak dinner at the Golden OX.  Y'all come on down here!!

Does that mean we'll see you at the NCOWS convention in March?

Books


Books, Dr Bob, and RCJ,

I certainly hope so.  I've been looking into it and will probably book my flight and hotel later today. 

I'll have just returned from Colorado Springs on Tuesday!  I thought of just going direct but I need to be back home for Wed and Thurs, so will probably just fly back out to KC on Friday morning.  However, with a bit of luck I'll arrive in time for the opening ceremonies. 

This is always a busy weekend for me.  I have things I should be doing in Jamestown and in Baltimore.  But I thought it was past time to do something with NCOWS again.
