Thanks, everyone, for the birthday wishes! I'll have to admit I'm not having as many work flashbacks as I used to, so retirement is working out. And the start of school, which I always dreaded even as an elementary school kid, is but a distant memory now.

All it means now is the traffic on my road ramps up about triple what it is during the summer. I live on a busy country road that ends near the bus lot of the local elementary school and the middle and high school campuses are only a couple miles up the highway. So we get lots of parent and bus traffic.

Doug, you must have me confused with another Jonathan. The only "plating" I do is collecting Blue Ridge Pottery.  ;)  You and Janet may have seen it at the flea market. See the picture below. Very colorful plates there. My grandmother Sowers had dishes like the yellow and green ones and I still use them and wash them in the dishwasher, like she did. Thanks for the wishes anyway. It's nice to be around.

Also BTW, I got myself a phone for my birthday this year. A BIN ivory 500 from 1-57 for $29.06 just showed up out of the clear blue on eBay. Picture below. It arrived the day before my birthday. It's from Toledo and has a surprise CHerry 2 number card, turned around.

You got a nice one, Jonathan! It looks like there's no fading either...a pretty fast cleanup ahead of you!
