    I will be unable to access the BOC after two weeks. I am retiring from the Sheriffs dept. 12-14-08, we do not have a computer at home though we may get one in the future. Tkeyhunter (BethAnn) will still be on line and can forward any messages or info to me. Most of you have my cell phone #. If anything I will be fishing much more ! I cannot begin to say how much I appreciate the friendships I have made, the information gained! I would like to thank everyone in the BOC the best website to be found for like minded people. This is really kind of sad but it is not really goodbye just so long! I will see most of you at gatherings.

    We will miss your posts but we know you will keep BethAnn busy posting all those fish you will now have time to pursue. Can't wait to see you and BethAnn at the gatherings. Good Luck on your retirement. I hope you don't end up with to many projects and don't have time to fish. :wink:

    Earl, shop around the local community. You can pick up dial up internet at some places as low as $10 monthly.

    Hoping you find a way to make it back online :wink:

    Earl, hope you enjoy your retirement! Man, I've still got 30 years left! :angry: Hope you can pick up a computer to keep up with the BOC. You should be able to get a decent used one at a cheap price.

    Congrats on your retirement TONTO! Now is the time to fish all you want! Anyhow, I agree with the rest of the bunch. Purchase a computer for home. A used one is very reasonable and should get you by for posting on the BOC! Just have to do some research and a great deal should be easy to come by.

    Hope to see you back aboard in the near future!!:big_smile:
