    I will tell you guys over the last 6-7 months i think i have had some life changing events in my life.

    The first thing was in feb/march i took my first 10 days off ever(no joke been running a small company since 1987 and have never had a single day off NOT ONE SINGLE DAY! Anyways the wife and i went on a vacation for 10 days (first vacation i have ever had)and came back march 9th to the pandemic in full force. By then my work was way overloaded and i have not had a day to relax sense due to the pandemic and then the riots here in Minnesota was i nice cherry on top :cry: . I lost accounts because the buildings are destroyed and burned to the ground but they will rebuild i am told so thats good(i service primarily large grocery/retail stores). But to get dozens of accounts back to normal has been draining to say the least the last month and a half has been very tough but i do like what i do for work…it just NEVER stops.

    Now as i turn 50 i find myself enjoying family even more and appreciating this community more too! I even appreciate @theloafer more too! My plan was to retire at 55 since i was 18 years old but now due to market im probably looking at 57 or 59 unless things start turning around soon but after all this i am truly a different person and i think i am much more at ease with my life and perhaps turning 50 is not that bad after all!

    Thanks to @thalamus and @outhere for keeping this site moderated and EVERYONE needs to thank them for the great support they provide here. THANK YOU!

    I do plan to get back into VP things more as soon as i can catch a breath and the pandemic is mostly over and work gets a bit less crazy! It has been just CRAZY i can not even begin to tell you but things have to start slowing down soon i would think.

    Thanks for all the birthday wishes guys i know thalamus just loves a good birthday thread LMAO! Surprised he didnt close or delete this thread yet.

    Happy birthday young man!

    A little late from over the pond but i just woke up half an hour ago!

    A big thank you for running this site (thalamus and outhere too)!

    I hope you enjoyed your first ever holiday (my goodness, god bless Germany)!

    Slowing down a bit sounds like a good idea. Life is short!

    Take care!

    Randr! Happy Birthday for you man! :)

    Others said things what i don’t want to repeat. But one thing it’s sure. I would be less without this community.

    I want to thank you everything for you and of course for the moderators like Thalamus.

    Have a nice day.

    Congratulations !! Ha ! Also belonging to the 50+ club, and yes one DOES appreciate family and friends more at this age, things tend to deepen and that’s a good thing !

    Yeah, hope you won’t get burried under work, relaxation is key at our age now ;-)

    That’s why you made such a fuss about my sandwich yesterday.  I would have thought it was sex myself but hey sandwich is good!

    Um, just what kind of ‘sandwich’ are we talking about here??

    Really appreciate your earlier post randr.  I’m sure all of us have been dealing with challenges.  But you spotted the right time and way to have us all here pause and give things some thought.

    Turning 50 was the best thing that ever happened to me btw!
