Jon: Sorry, I must be old and confused!
Mike: Thanks! I originally got bounced out of Corporate America at 48 years old in 2012. I consulted for 4 years (loved the work, hated the lifestyle), and went into "semi-retirement" in mid-2016, basically managing the investment properties I had bought along the way. Pandemic hit, and I sold the bigger one in March of 2020. The smaller one just got to be a pain in the ass, and the wife wanted to unload it. Sold it May of 2021, and am trying to be officially retired!
Got back into golf, and did that until it got cold in October. Opened the case on my acoustic, and have been playing it an hour or so 3-4 times per week since. I am starting to feel the tough spots on my fingers again, and can feel my grip on the strings improving. I do feel like I am starting over, but it is coming back more quickly than when I learned it the first time!
I see the board is quieter than it was a decade+ ago. I guess us Deadheads are all starting to get old. Bummer man.
Mama Mama many worlds I've come since I first left home.
