Congratulations micah68kj! That's exciting news! Being retired myself, I can say you can certainly look forward to it, but be ready, you'll be busier than when you were working.

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

I hear you loud and clear. Wife already has a list waiting for me. Hopefully I can squeeze some travel in between jobs. Want to go back to Alaska for a couple weeks. I'd also like to see my relatives in Europe. Also have a friend in England that keeps emailing me asking when am I coming to visit them? Hopefully I can do all these things.

well it was sort of warm so i went out torearrange the garage so the toro ccr 2000r would have a parking spot. i finally got the starter drive cover for the toro 826 so i installed it. i was missing the top screw that holds the heater box on the toro 521, i found a screw and installed it. it took more time to move foru snowblowers out the garage than it did to rearange the garage or install either part. some pic's i took

Actually, I did this yesterday. I've delivered flowers for a local flower shop on holidays like Valentine's Day. It's a lot of fun, and I look forward to it every year.

The shop is owned by a full time firefighter of 20 years for the City of Moline, IL and his wife. She operates the shop full time. I think they had 12 delivery people yesterday, and I made 32 deliveries myself. Lots of smiles from everybody getting flowers yesterday.

Here's most of the flowers after being put out ready to be loaded up and delivered.


I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.
