Coconut:

There is a term that applies to your position on this Forum, but I forgot it.  I'll look it up in one of my textbooks and get back.

Just curious:  I'm assuming you are retired and that's why you have way too much time on your hands (   :155: ).  By chance were you a teacher?  ( But please, no offense if you weren't  ).

For what it's worth from a Newbie, thank you once again for your contributions to this Form.

There are probably several Terms
that could be used to describe me !  :745:

I was compulsorily retired from my main “Public Service” career
after 30 years service in July 2013.

I have never been a “Teacher” as such, but I did complete some
Teaching related courses, and was my Unit’s “Training Officer”
( amongst other roles on that Department ) for a while.

These days I have a little part time ( 3 days a week )
driving job - it keeps me active, and pays for things like
my Trophy / Holidays, and anything else I need,
without having to stretch the Pension too far !

Not that I’m at work for a couple of weeks after some
unintentional gymnastics on the Ice last week,
which left me with a sprained ankle !  :138:  :087:

I sort of retired from married life the year after in 2014 ( she left ! ),
which is another reason for my excess of “spare time” !

Cheers :821:

I consider him our Guru, and I can tell you from personal experience you would never meet a more kind hearted person.  Back to topic now.

Coconut:

Thanks for that personal info.

BTW, I've been a re-tread for the last 37 years ( number 1 left me too ).  It's not an easy thing to go through, hope you are doing better, now.

For sure, it helps to have a motorcycle to ride !!
