So, hows retirement treating you? [big grin]

  Hi Jim,


 Still tying up some loose ends so "retirement" is a little ways away.

Bob, I wish you all the best! Other than the jig saw and a guide rail, I got all my Festool stuff from you, first while we were in Chicago and continuing when we retired to Mississippi.  Haven't bought much in past 3 years; have gone the way of some of the older FOG guys and have been looking at Blue tools.  I always appreciated your honesty!

As I recall you had an avatar posted for a while with you holding a K80.  Hope you get to use that a lot in retirement!  Old age and football knees don't allow me to do much trap or sporting clays anymore.  Shoot while you can!


Best Wishes

 Thanks for the kind words and your support throughout the years. A K80? Nah, never had one.

I knew it! I knew that some day you would run out of bubble wrap!

Bob, I, as all who have written, (I only just got to this party and I have not gotten past the second reply yet), i feel happy for you. You were the one who alerted me to the Fog way back when we were on Yahoo. When i lost track, you steared me to the new site. I have bought many tools from you with no more than a phone call and a mental handshake of the promise both ways. I have never met you in person, probably never will, but I feel that you have been a good friend, as we all do. I wish you the best of luck and I hope you get to use a few of the Festoys I am sure you have lying around. Enjoy your family.

 Now that's funny, Wayne!  I feel the same way too and have always enjoyed your keen wit and way with words here on the FOG.

Thanks again!

 As an aside, I will be selling some of the used tools in my shop in the near future - don't need 3 Carvex jigsaws anymore. ;)
