Default I am back but they had to drag me.

They had to drag me into work this morning. I did NOT want to come in. As you quessed it, I am not retired as of yet. We had a blast in Reno and IF I had quit on Saturday night, wellllll. You know how that goes. . We really enjoyed ourselves and made lots of memories. he flight out and back was almost perfect. We DID leave Reno in a snow storm. That was a little nerve racking. We saw all of the wild fires in the panhandle of Texas and that was quite a site, Not pretty at all but amazing. It feels good to be home and safe. Now we are planning our next outing in April.

Have a good day and please stay safe.
bigjohn out.

Several of you are asking if I won any $$$$$, I refuse to answer that on the grounds of the IRS ..I did not win enough to retire but we did not do too bad. I ain't giving up though.
