Maximus, given your signature line, you should look at my post, "Ard Choille, Gregorach!" as a possible retirement home.

Congratulations. I am glad for you. :) :)

Congrats you old bugger, and when you make that trip to Oz make sure you stop a while on the east side before you go to that wasteland Ming lives in. ;)

Many congratulations Maximus! I hope you'll find time to continue your great contributions to the forums. I've enjoyed your insights and had quite a few good laughs from your great sense of humor.

Best regards.

Maximus, congratulations on a great career. I am envious of you as I have 20 years on the job and about 13 more still to do. Wish I could hoist a pint with you and share some war stories or will we have to wait for the book? Enjoy the peace and quiet and playing with knives! Best of luck. pistolpete

Ahh sorry, I was a week out Max. My spies have been dismissed. I hope you enjoy your last day today. Give us some advanced warning if you plan to visit WA and I just may be able to bung on an adventure for you. Also bring your shoes and pedals as I have a spare road bike.

It's a wide open road..............

Ming65,

Cheers, mate; much appreciated.

I'll be setting off in about 90 minutes for the walk in to my last full day at work. Ever. Strange feeling...

Congrats on reaching this milestone in your life - I'm sure your work collegues will miss you but the crims won't.
Savor the moment today, tommorow is the begining of a new journey.

How was the last day Max? Still hung over are you?

A teeny drop of red wine was consumed. Followed by just a whimsy of uisge beatha.

My mate Tom also gave me a bottle of Glenfiddich. I might have to uncork that this evening just to check that all's well with it. Perhaps with a suggestion of Black Bun to accompany it...

Hey...

You can come and work at my university in Staffordshire.

I have a lecturer who just retired as a detective after 30 years and now he's working at the uni.

It's a good thing for us wannabe forensic scientists to have someone with experience in law enforcement.

I don't think my lecturers work that much.

They're mostly at the pub during lunch.

It's really weird seeing them in the morning compared to after lunch.

So what are your plans? Any hobbies you're going to take up?

My father-in-law's regiment, The Scots Greys, charges at Waterloo:

"At around 2pm Major General Ponsonby’s Union Brigade of heavy dragoons (the 1st Royal Dragoons, 2nd Royal Scots Greys and 6th Inniskilling Dragoons) charged D’Erlon’s infantry columns as they reached the British line. The charge built up momentum and the British “Heavies” launched themselves on the French infantry, the Greys shouting “Scotland for ever”.

Sergeant Charles Ewart of the Greys rode at the eagle bearer of the 45th Infantry. He cut down the four escorts and the eagle bearer and bore the eagle away.

As the Duke of Wellington grumblingly complained “the British cavalry never know when to stop charging”.

The Greys adopted the captured French eagle as the regiment’s badge. It is still the badge of the present regiment: the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards."
