    There are a few people on here I would like to meet up with. You are one of them, but coming to Oregon isn't in the cards. I have met a lot of people from this site and have fished with a bunch when I lived in Washington. I had a good time with all. And there are some power drinkers out there.

    Happy Birthday, Jim. You are an inspiration. After surviving cancer, heart attack, and quintuple bypass I am confident I'll make it to enjoy fishing as long as you have. Fish on!

    Happy b-day. I hope I can say I went fishing on my 79th! I only have 49 more years to go to see if it happens.

    My dad was an old man when he was my age. I don't feel any different now that I did when I was 64. I'm just a bit slower than when I was when I retired. A few more aches and pains. my get up and go has slowed down. But other than what was said I feel good for an Old Man.

    You know some of those retirees might have kept on working just to have insurance and finally retired when they couldn't do the job any longer.

    Happy Birthday OMJ and many more.

    If you retired at Boeing and you were hourly, your insurance quit at age 65. If you were salary, it march's on. At least it was that way when I retired. I retired at 64. I couldn't take the bull shit anymore. And there was a lot of it being slinged around. They wanted you to take schooling for just about everything you did. I got kicked out of the last class I had for pointing things out to the teacher that were wrong. So much for dumb teachers.
