    Sounds like a great work-life balance to me. All the best in this next phase of life my friend.

    Congrats Leland! Once they turn you loose on the water, remember to leave one or two for the rest of us :eek:

    Ditto all the congrats (although I did get to say it in person on Sunday). Orvis scored a coup when they brought Leland on...already great store in Bellevue became even greater...Leland and the rest of the folks have consistently provided me with fantastic customer service. Thanks to Leland and all of you over there for showing the rest of us how it is done.

    But, Leland, really, leave a few fish! Oh, that's why you sold me the 3 weight...not big enough for your steelies!

    Part time is the way to go Leland. I've found one day a week to be perfect, just enough structure in my life that I know what day it is, if not the month.
    I've got an open seat in the Dauntless for you, just don't call on Mondays, I'm just swamped that day.

    So lets see... You come in late(r), lurk on web sites until your thumbs start to blister, go smoke cigars knee deep in water until it's time to swill scotch.
    I like it. Congratulations Leland. Hope Jason comes to visit soon.
