Thanks mbdoc,

On behalf of all of us pretend wrench-turners out here, let me tell you that we couldn't have kept our old MB's going without your help. For every post you responded to, I'll bet you helped a hundred people. I wish you the best.

Whenever you can enjoy what you've earned, you enjoy it all the more.

Relax and have fun!

Need some clarification. Retired from what? From where you work? From being a mod here? From this forum completely?

Thanks for helping me out with some sensitive information off-forum a few years ago. Your advice was appreciated and right-on, as it happened. We need a few more guys like you here. Take care.

So now that you've "hung it up" what are you gonna do for aggravation?

One of the instructors at the Montvale Learning and Performance Center retired a few years ago (remember DK?), and got bored pretty quickly. He took a job as a new car delivery specialist at a BMW dealership!!! Are you gonna switch teams too???
