You're just jealous I never included you in the list. Well, you and your retirement attitude suck too!

I don't know about that. Old is just a state of mind, right?

Doug is not older, I don't think. He sure does look young. I am 57.

the thought of having a warm spring day to wax the trailer sounds like a great way to spend a day of retirement. specially, now while I sit at a desk working for a living. I tend to agree with Jim's last few posts.....

and of course there is more to retirment then just enjoying one's self. I have a retirement goals list which includes still trying to make a positive difference in the lives of people (volunteering at a residential treatment program) - as well as travelling.

I just gave Cafe Egg yesterday a good wash, and when it was dry a wax. Good workout, but I have to agree with Jim. When I have time I want to go use Cafe Egg!! But there are still many years of work ahead of me....

Indeed. I'm in New Mexico and haven't started thinking about returning to Florida. I just spoke to my cousin back home; she said nothing is going on there and for me to stay out here as long as I like. Come to think of it, every time I take a trip the people at home encourage me to stay away as long as I can. Hmm....

Went to a marine supply store looking for a good quality wax for our 17B and came away with P-38-Q RV, BOAT & AIRCRAFT WAX.
But as I was walking away one of the staff said to be careful about getting it on the black window trim as it may cause staining or cause it to turn grey, he suggested taping the window trim to protect it. So now I'm rethinking using this product, has anyone used it, and would you recommend it. The idea of taping the windows does not appeal to me.
