When’s the open house? Great place, congratulations. Looks like a slice of heaven. Just remember that it rains more in that part of heaven than W Seattle.

Perhaps you will get to work on some of your own projects?

Projects have been slow moving for sure. Going to try to slow the workload down a bit, hopefully.

Save them to you desktop, rotate them (even if they look up-right) until they are up-right, save them and post.

Bonne Chance with retirement.

JW, I always read what you write and appreciate the wisdom. I also wonder about that squirrel logo, but when I see it I know to read what ever you have posted. Good to see you are shortening your commute time, I also work from home and the advantages are plenty. I look at it this way: deleting a 30 min commute, each way, free's up an hour a day, good on ya.

Congrats on a new phase in your life/career, John. I'll come up and visit the new place soon. Thank you for your years of institutional knowledge about our cars, your generosity, wisdom, and advice. Truly appreciate everything you have done for me and the community. Cheers!

Others have likely said the same, but when I see a JW reaponse to a query, I always feel that thread should be promptly sealed by the Moderators...case-closed, there's your answer.

John,

Commuting through Greenwood every day I'd fantasize about going to work in a small specialty garage; instead of where I was heading. Passing through Greenwood will loose a little of its extra charm without you.

All the best.

With that lawn, I see a Porsche tractor (turbo ?) in your future.
Beautiful place. I'm jealous living in an asphalt jungle.

I too, read every JW post with great appreciation !
Enjoy
