The last time someone made a post like the opening poster I said as a joke "bite me" followed by a . I actually got a warning from a mod, my first ever after 100,000 message board posts. Said it was a personal attack. Seriously. So even though the OP and I have talked offline and are a bit friendly I'll resist the urge.

See you in Tennessee some day my friend.

DaveinMtAiry: Hang in there. I just got chewed up by a poster who referred to me in a most unflattering way. I guess there are those who have a bad day now and then.

I understand the meaning behind what you wrote to that other person that got you in some trouble; I personally see nothing wrong with it. : )

Congratulations on retirement. My best advice is not to spend all your free time on message boards patting yourself on the back like a few I have come across. I am betting you have all kinds of plans for retirement. Enjoy!!

Oh I'm not upset but thanks, and I did see the shot you took which was way worse than an internet slap on the wrist. But it was really weird, not sure if it was reported or if the mod took it upon him/herself to do this. Thought it was really obvious that it was a joke. I sent a note to the mod, never got a response. But alas they are volunteers so I will no longer make a big deal out of it.

Joke? I didn't interpret it that way. Interesting how others read what is written here.

Best to leave sleeping dogs lie, don't you think?

Congratulations. 18 more months and that Guard check starts rolling in. And with 10 years active, it will provide a significant amount of income. I was a slacker. I only did six years active and a little under 26 years in the Air Guard, including three rotations in Afghanistan. Going into the Guard after my active duty time was up was one of the smartest things I ever did. You are set for life.

I retired at 59 and believe me it's not too young. Once you retire, life goes by really fast. If you can afford to not work, stop looking for a job and enjoy your life. You are finally FREE.
Make the most of it.
