    Well, if memory serves me correctly, Frank's last day at the firehouse is today. Then he is officially retired. Unlike Brett Favre we expect him to stay retired and utilize his photographic skills as his second career. :smile:

    So, let me be the first to say "Congratulations" Frank on a great and noble career....and may your next journey in life be equally impressive.

  2. Hey Frank congratulations. Welcome to the club. I hope that you enjoy your retirement as much as I have mine. Now get busy with that camera LOL:biggrin:
  3. Yes, a very happy retirement to you!!! As a recently retired medic, I promise you will not miss hearing the tones at 0115, and then again at 0205, and yet again at 0300. Nor will you miss shoveling out hydrants in the winter!! :biggrin: :biggrin:

    I guess he retired on a Thursday, June 19th so by now he is 'happily retired' and pursuing what he always wanted to do.
  6. Wow, he's retired? He needs to update his avatar. It shows him as a young guy. :rolleyes: 
  7. Congrats Frank! I still have 17 years to go, but it wouldn't make a difference. As a scientist out of idealism I would most likely continue to do the same after retirement, maybe with a few changes in amount of time used.
