Retiring

Hey Guys! Been a long, long time!

Well...I'm going to be retiring here very soon from folding. Probably when I break the 7 mil mark. Need to take a break, give my electric bill a break, and focus on some other things in my life. I've been folding since 2002 and feel like I made a pretty good contribution to the cause and the team. Still a really hard decision to make.

I wish all you guys well! It has been great being on the team with everyone. Great job!

I'm taking the summer off myself. Electric rates are too high and with the air conditioning load....well, that was too much. I'll probably pick back up in late Oct. or early Nov.

Thanks for your your many contributions to the cause!!

Re: Retiring

I echo the others thanks.
Although I understand the need(s) to take a break, It doesn't have to be permanent.
Hope to you see all back in the fold soon.
