The TILE! The TILE!
Just a quick update tonight.. I'm making progress on the south side of the room. I had to go get more tile today, and it has to acclimate to its new environment for about 48 hours. So I'll have to work on some other bits and pieces over the weekend - and there are plenty of those to deal with!
Today was kind of an emotional day. This was my last official day of work - I am now retired! When I walked in to our tiny office at the hospital, my work buddy, Ron (in the blue shirt), had put up the banner in the lower picture. After turning in my company laptop, phone, and badge, we had a nice retirement lunch with a few of the other guys. It's kind of a bittersweet moment, but the feeling of freedom is so wonderful!
Thanks to all of you who have sitemailed / emailed, me and for the wonderful dedications! I really miss you all, and working on the T.N.A. story. I'm keeping track of all the gallery notifications, (400 some-odd as of tonight), and will be getting caught up once this renovation is done. Hopefully things will speed up a bit now that I have more time to work on it! LOL
Like many of you, I'm sure hoping the best for Dan with the situation in Puerto Rico.
Thanks for dropping by, and for all your support and friendship!

Ha, ha at first with your title and dual shots you look so much younger after getting laid. Yeah at our age the knee pads help alot.
Congrats on the big retirement bro, well deserved I say. Have a Tina & Tenacious image done, just not sure when I'll post it. They hope your not also retiring from the T.N.A. Thanks for the update on your progress. Now time too go get laid somewhere.
I'm coming out of another few-month leave to congratulate you, and wish you all the best with this continuing repair that you've been tackling for several weeks. One can really see the difference here, Rod---as I went through the pics since the big storm, your basement is really starting to look finished! (And yeah, I knew, from the ebot, that you were talking about your tiles---re "getting laid"---not some babe from TNA Headquarters.) I can see, though, that you do have more to do; and if you're doing it alone, it takes time and effort. I have to tell you: Accd'g to your site, you're 6 months older than me, which that means we're pretty much the same age; and if I were on that floor crawling and kneeling, I'd still be there---I mean 6 days later---in fact, I'd have taken up permanent residence in that position, because the odds of my actually 'getting up' would be stratospherically low. You got agile muscles, sir! But it looks really good---all the best with it! (Tara and Bill will be seeing you soon---will they get to see the finished product? It'd be great to see a pic of it from one of them. Stay tuned, ladies and gentlemen---Rod could have his basement-christening with 2 RR friends...)
As for retirement, it must be bittersweet indeed, because, for all the things you were so tired of, you still must've made real friends there, and they were your daily companions at one time or another, each day. So departing for good is a big deal. I wish you so much good stuff, Rod---freedom, stretching out, all the time you want to create, explore, photograph and whatever strikes your and jo's fancy. I imagine you'll need to decompress first, but by year's end, I'll be the new year couldn't have come at a better time! (Besides: I've known few people who's retirement was marked by such upturning stuff: 2 surgeries, 1 for Jo, all kinds of frustrations at work, and that huge storm and this labor. I hope I haven't forgotten anything...If you wanted to 'mark' your retirement, you really did it in style!) Well I hope it's all leisure and creativity and joy when you finish this room. I didn't do any dedis for this---though I mentioned you in a recent upload (where I mentioned several people who were struggling): But you have a birthday coming up, and I won't forget that. (And don't worry about getting to all my uploads---truly, you can start from fresh! You earned that after the year you had...) All the best to you, Rod: It's only gonna be better and better from here on out. Love the pics. I wish you speed and completion with your home!
Congratulations on your retirement Rod, now let the fun begin. You will be busier than ever but I hope you take some time out just to wind down from work. Lovely that your work friends gave you a good sendoff too. I need to go and catch up on your postings as haven't been here for so long but hopefully will be here more often now. Your tiling is coming along nicely and looks to be straight and true. This looks as though it will be a great place for creating. :)
..... nice "floor-play" for coming attractions, and best wishes for you to achieve a good balance during your retiring years. I certainly hope the girls will stop by Pyongyang and slap some sense into the phrogg :) , and I look forward to a continuation of your adventure.
Sorry Rod, sometimes my mind does indeed go to places it probably shouldn't (G4 with bucket of ice water). Nice to see Lair 2.0 coming along well. (Betty with bucket of ice water) Enjoy your retirement, I'm sure the Girls are ready for it!
