Yeah! I'll drink a martini in your honor. I'm lucky enough to work for a huge place that has a large variety whenever I've needed a change. I don't think at this point I would have the stones to do a full on change like that. Happy trails to you

Now go enjoy your time off. I don't think anyone in Foo would disagree that you deserve it.

Hey, KD, great idea! I'll also have a dry martini, with an onion.

Snowy, congrats! Try to get out and enjoy a nice ride to celebrate this turning point in your life. Notice the extra vibrancy of the colors around you, the way you feel when riding your bike, the euphoria....

Love it! Love life!

You lucky bugger. I have well over 30 to go. Still at least I should be able to buy lots more bikes during that time.
