    Maybe it's just me, but I sense an ulterior motive here.

    Congrats, Wayne. May the next couple of weeks go smoothly and swiftly.

    Congratulations Wayne!

    I agree with Vaughn, somehow it seems a little tooooo convenient that he's moving soooo close to Jeff...I don't know.

    Most retired folks move south don't they?

    We are both excited! Yes you guys are right, he has more and better tools than I do, so I'm looking forward to that too...
