    Exclamation Well, I feel like I'm "new" here!

    Well, I FEEL like I'm "NEW" just because it's been sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo long since I last visited. So much has happened in my life not the least of which is my RETIREMENT from being a Social Studies educator in the fourth largest school district in the nation. My wife popped smoke and retired from her teaching position as well. Between us we had a total of (gulp) 74 years teaching experience with the heavy end of that (44 years) landing on her. I've been an NRA Instructor for 31 years now, as well. So now, I can enjoy life and feel safe in our new home in East Tennessee!
    Former Army Infantry Captain; 31 yrs as an NRA Certified Instructor; NRA Patriot Benefactor Life; Avid practitioner of the martial art: KLIK-PAO. IDPA, USPSA, STEEL CHALLENGE competitor. RETIRED Social Studies Educator as of 12/7/2018

    Welcome to Tennessee! How far east are you?
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    Today's educational arena is a nice place to be FROM. I fully understand that 'accomplishment.'
    Congrats on the retirement and move!
    Enjoy the forum.
