      Big grin Great job! 23 years is a long time to run without trying. See what happens when you try.

        May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your SPF30, may the rains fall soft upon your sweat-wicking hat, and until you hit the finish line may The Flying Spaghetti Monster hold you in the hollow of His Noodly Appendage.


        Hoping to Run Again :-(

              Great job! Congratulations. BTW, this is starting to get wierd. Just after I read your post on my bragging thread, I read this one and found out you're also in the avionics field. Cool. Me too. For what it's worth, your time at age 47 impresses me a lot more than my time at (almost) 40. I'll keep that in mind for the next seven years.

                Thanks everyone....I really knew you all cared deep down inside Tongue Aaron, Yeah all the best people are in avionics - although an FAA Inspector is kind of on The Dark Side from where I am Wink Cheers, Phil

                    Phil, Yeah, I became an inspector after I got tired of my friends in aviation. Wink

                    De-slacking in progress

                      Nice job Aaron, keep up the great work! Don't do it. I know someone who did something like that, and within a week he'd lost his job, his left ear fell off for no reason, and his dog ran away. As a matter of fact, just reading this post pointing to the other post is probably dangerous. You should create a really big chain email and send it to every addy in your email client, just to help ward off the evil spirits.
                      Well- I read the other post and came to read yours- so if any of the above happens to me... well... you know... btw- fantastic job
