    Geez, I'll be 72! I think turning 70 was the worst; it's when mortality turns it's ugly head, it happens. However, thanks to clean living and staying away from drugs and Jamesons, I'm doing fine, and still can kick butt!

    I had no retirement plan, but after some terrible employee issues, I was fried. My good friend, Russ Berg, bought the biz, I sold our property, paid everything off, got a motor home and hit it. I have no regrets, did some killer systems. We both had paid into Social Security and the income was doable. So, I'm sitting in 75 degree temp, thanking you for the birthday wishes!

    At what age did you retire?

    My plan is to croak in someone's yard

    Don't laugh. I was at a equitment auction last yr and I asked an excavater I know who was there if the dude retired. He said no, he croaked in a customers yard doing a start up.
