Thumbs up Thanks for all the Support over the last 11 years - 06-03-2013, 06:23 PM

Hello all, I want to say I have enjoyed all the useful information I have gained here over the last 11 years. But all good things must come to an end, as of 06/01/2013 I no longer own a Pool Room here in Lakewood, Washington. I sold it to some great people who I am certain will take the business to bigger and better places than I had the time, knowledge, or resorces to do myself.

However, I had a great time doing what I always wanted to do and nothing will ever change that. For the fture I am looking forward to retirement, it is important to do this before you get to old to enjoy it and I think being 54 years young is the perfect age.

Thanks again to everyone who gave me advise and information over the years!!!!!!!!

Very Respectfully

So does that mean that you are leaving AZB and taking your little dog too?!!!!

Craig,

You have been an amazing participant on the Forums for many years, and as one set of doors close in order to open others, please stay connected to AZB, well connected.

You have just entered an emotional rollercoaster of sorts, even though a great one in retirement, and AZ will serve as a nice grounding point.

BTW, you will love what the future is about to bring you, and I wish you total happiness. Way to go!

Will Prout

I, too, "retired" at 54, several years ago. Just don't count on doing nothing.
good luck with your future endeavors. Terry Aeschliman
