    Re: Ms Wyyysoccer

    Doc, you ask what I had been up to. I can say I am up to to many pounds for a fellow almost 76 years young. I do like to eat and take full advantage of my wife's good cooking. I play golf two or three times a week (weather permitting this time of the year)

    I am still active as a member of the county EDC and TDA boards. We just landed a new industry for the county that will provide 300 jobs in an area badly hurt by the loss of textile jobs.

    I try to meet with the locals at the drug store two or three times a week for a cup of coffee and good conversation.

    I spend more time on this computer than I should. I have always enjoyed photography as a hobby. Now with digital photography I have a whole new concept to play with. Also spend a great deal of time on "ham" radio talking to people all over the world.


    DOC! thanks for asking and again it is good to have you back on the board.

    • RW:

      Good to hear you have been kickin. Keep that wife of yours young now, don't forget her...

      I stopped being on this computer thing so much - turns your mind to mush. I volunteer and spend lots of time with people. I was spending too much time on the money thing - I mean - when we die - it ain't coming with us you know?

      God has big plans for us in heaven - that I know.

      Merry christmas to you, your family, readum, denna, fan, and even stock although i disagree with him.

      • Can't take it with you!!!! Come on Doc, surely you have heard of traveler's checks.

      • Thanks Doc, It is really good to see you back posting. I too, don't post a lot but read almost every day. I have learned much over the last few years on this board, mostly about people and a little about investing. I am not a savey investor, but think BB&T is a good company with good management and a good longterm future. Doc, I wish for you and the other 3+ years posters on this board, a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy Prosperious New Year. We all have different good ideas on what is best for us by way of investments and also on what makes a good investment. The key (IMHO) to shareing these "good ideas" is in doing it in a way that we do not offend each other.

        Best Wishes to all!

        Long on BB&T


      • You're right about the money thing. At our age you figure that out. I still have fun trying to see if I can make money in the market, but only with "fun money" so I don't get too serious about it.

        Since various grand persons coming in over the next day or so, I won't be trading and I don't plan to be on the computer much either. Besides, they'll all be playing games, etc. and one will have to "telecommute" in order to be here, so I probably won't be able to get to it any way. In any event, I wish to you all, wisdom, happiness, and above all, peace. Merry Christmas to everyone.



    • Time is a problem when you retire. I believe retirement dramatically speeds up time. Remember when you were 6 and summer lasted forever, now summer is gone in a flash. The older we get the faster time travels. The only way I know to slow it down is to find some tasks that are totally boring and engulf yourself in it. This seems to make the day longer.
