    Well, the end of my year is right here now...

    I hope now to get all my loose ends tied up on the 2007 contracts, and hopefully have statisfied all obligations. In any event I will be officially done, and financially done even if I do get caught still out there in the new year.... except working out collections somehow on some deliquency...

    Anyways, getting to my whole point here... there is a question I have for you guys as fellow forum members....

    I may or may not be totally 100% out of the business, all things considered... only time will tell. But in any event, in my other thread (my last month) many asked that I try to still hang around and post to answer questions, etc.

    So my question to everyone is....

    What is proper etiquette for me now?

    There has been a lot of discussion on here about this sort of thing in recent times and also a lot of partially related discussion as well.... just all sorts of stuff about what should be in your signature line, profile, etc...

    So do you guys thing I should add something in my signature line area to 'disclose' my new 'status'.....???

    If so, then what sort of wording seems proper to add?

    What do I put?.... Sold out?... Sell-out (lol)?... Retired?.... Fake Retired?... WHAT?

    I'm open to suggestion and I have no issue in doing this so that my future posts are considered in better context, etc... but I think the line should be dated for those who use the search feature and read old stuff....

    Hi Envy: I don't believe I would change anything in your signature . You still like those 3-products. And the tombstone is still correct -- Lesco is never going to be what it was before Deere took them over.

    I don't think it is necessary to make a statement in your signature about your status eg: retired, semi-retired etc.

    We appreciated your input , your knowledge and you have my respect . For a young man you have gained a lot of know how and I am certain you can back up and prove any subject you put in writing.

    Sorry to change the topic a bit, but why are you getting out of the business?
    Are you really retiring or just switching careers?

    I don't think you need to disclose anything. You still have lot's to impart and LS is a fine place to hang out. There are lots of retired lawn jockeys that hang out here.
