My Last Post -- Farewell!

I've been running this blog for more than six years now, and I must say I did indeed appreciate all the kind words and comments from various readers over the years.  Thanks!  But the fact is, I've completely run out of new and interesting things to say, and so I've finally decided it's time to say goodbye.  This will be my last blog post.  Frank and David and Al may choose to keep blogging if they like, that's up to them.

Furthermore, I've just gotten bored with the railway preservation field as a whole, and IRM in particular.  It's time to take up some other hobby in my old age.
 Body-building and incredible feats of physical strength might be a good choice.  I'll let you know how it turns out.

Wow...

...and then I realized what day it is. A cruel joke, Mr. Hicks.

You should have opened the bottle of Tums. I got a stomach ache reading your resignation note. And then I, too, realized the date.

Sheesh, don't even joke about that. Your blog is one of the few reasons I have left for getting on the internet.

HEADLINE:
"Professor Hicks Goes Emeritus" (?!?)

would be a much better concept.

Keep up the good work.

Keep up with the feats of strength.
It'll come in handy when Festivus
rolls around.

Randall, you are way way too old to take up pole dancing :)
