I go for an interview Monday. I don't want to say too much right now - I don't know how it is going to work out?

Have a good trip to Philadelphia! How long are you going to extend your B/D celebrations (the whole month)?
Good luck and prayers sent your way this am! I soooooooooooo wish I could squeeze out the whole month but hubby finally put his foot down yesterday!

Thanks for asking!
MY comments for this one would result in an infraction!

I just can't get it all the way in.
Dagnamit...can't saying anything about this post without getting to trouble either! Sheesh!

In Stroudsburg there is one and they do have some outdoor equipment set aside for people that need parts. I would think that the S/WB areas would have better pickings?

Good luck with your safety switch - they can drive you nuts.
Ok now I am just channeling my father!

Thanks! But remember; I'm retired so I don't really know if I should celebrate one way or another?

What's this? B/D finally over? You can try again next week!

What is all of this no comment thing? Do we have to move this thread to politics and controversies? Just kidding! Have a great day!

It went pretty good today. I will not know until they finish all the interviews - but I feel good (regardless of the outcome). I keep flipping a coin - to retire or to work? If the stock market was doing better; the choice would be easier!
