Hi George, welcome aboard! Your 1st assignment as a new member is to ask some questions, post some pictures, give some opinions, generate enthusiasm and sign up some more new members!
Since you are retired you have plenty of time to get this stuff done! (Just funning with you.)
Seriously George, although I don't speak for anyone other than myself, I'm sure many would agree that we hope you stick around and type up some stuff every now and then to help keep this forum alive. (We recently went over a month with no new entries or responses in the Lounge.)
