    hey kave, it's been awhile my friend. congratulations on your upcoming retirement, the agency will miss your leadership and contribution to the mission i'm sure, but don't let that stop ya. i found a place to take a mugshot picture for you with some tsptalk stuff or something, but i am waiting for full spring and the flowers to come out.

    on a side note, i have taken up the frustrating game of golf and am starting a logo'd golf ball collection of places we play, or other cool balls we get. i wonder if you would be interested in making a golf ball display rack out of some of that reclaimed tobacco barn wood that you do? i still use the vape stand that you made daily to store and organize my ecig supplies, way cool and excellent craftsmanship, it makes me smile. here is the basics, 14"x3.5"x15", holds 25 balls, a golf ball is 1.68" in diameter, i don't want a fancy felt backing just all wood. let me know if this is something you would be interested in taking on and shoot me a price, no hurry.

    Burrocrat, Thanks for the kind words my friend! I have enjoyed my work over my career but it's bout time to be put out to pasture, like a highly decorated race horse!

    On another note, I'd love to put something like this together for you. I've got plenty of the reclaimed barn wood for a project such as this. I'll start working on it in a week or so. I'm doing a battery replacement build on our RV right now that will tie me up for another week or so. I'll get back to you!

    Well, I signed my retirement package yesterday! That was my birthday present to myself!

    I've never been one that really enjoyed "Retirement Receptions". My thoughts are if you polled 100 people, and if honest, 90 would tell they really don't enjoy those things. Secondly, it puts a ton of work of someone and finally it costs someone $ and we didn't want to burden anyone right here at Christmas. So my wife, my soul mate, and I talked about it and we decided to feed my staff today as our way of saying THANK YOU. Tomorrow is my last day in the office. With the holiday and NWD, I will be on leave 3 days next week. My official retirement date is December 31.

    So I leave my work family with these final words:
    I am truly a Blessed Man! Serving my fellow man and working with all of the past and present FSA family has been a life experience I will always treasure. After 31 years, the time has come for me to pursue other life opportunities. Or as I told my committee, “it’s time for me to hoe a different row”.

    My philosophyhas been simple:

    1) Honesty Always
    2) Family First Always
    3) How an incident is handled is usually more important than the incident itself
    4) Take care of the people who take care of you
    5) Help others along the way
    6)And every day, be fair to the farmer and fair to the program

    So, I part with this simple thought:


    Whether we realize it or not, we affect people every day, always try to make it a positive effect.

    Probably the next time I post on TSPTalk I will be "RETIRED"


    Merry Christmas to all you fine folks here!

    Best Wishes,
    Kave

    Moved to G Fund. Locking in some profits today. Primarily sat in the L- Income for the most of 2019. TSP Personal Investment Performance (PIP) for the past 12 months ending 11/30/2019 is
