    My wife is a bit skeptical that I will be successful this time.

    We should all be so luck, most employers can't wait to get the old farts out the door.
    Not that you are an old fart...

    Wives can be like that, but in the end I'm sure she knows you have her best intensions at heart.

    Congratulations on a great safari and upcoming retirement.

    @tarbe Tim, you have proven yourself on cape buffalo, but how are you on the elusive mime?

    As a follow-on to this post, we finally closed the transaction I was leading. As a result, I officially retired on November 15th. I’m now busy tuning rifles and planning for the next hunt. Let the games begin!
