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!

Welcome to Tennessee! How far east are you?
Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!
Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.
Welcome back. You mean people retire out of Florida!?!

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.

This land abounds in ruffians and varmints. Their numbers are legion, their evil skills commensurate.
Welcome back, Sir!
Glad to see life is treating you well, and you've escaped the clutches of work and Coral Gables!
