    Good for you, Lois. I absolutely love your comment about being an extreme hobbyist. It's a fine line to walk, isn't it?

    For everyone else, I met Lois a couple years ago and she is one cool cat. Nobody deserves a nice retirement more than her!

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    Awww, retirement!

    Kinda takes all the work out of it ...and puts the fun back into it, don't you think?!
    Now why would anyone want to go and do that?

    (I have turned too many hobbies into "work" myself...)

    Oh well... congrats!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    That's great Lois. I look at it as starting a new chapter of doing what you love to do..."just because"!

    See you this weekend!
