It's nice to hear from Tony, one of the members who make this place great.

Also, quite an inspirational retirement you're living there Tony - so much for vegetating and feeling at a loose end.

Set a man on fire, he'll be toasty for the rest of his life.

Tony is not the first guy I've known who retired from an executive position and went back to a farm. There is something innately satisfying about working close to the soil.

Tony!!!!!!! What, no forum dedicated to your models? How is your wife? I have thought what I might want to learn if I retired. I'd probably be content to sell lounge chairs on the beach, collect the money, play a little volleyball and get an awesome tan. And go on a few missions trips. Wow, dulcimer and guitar and tractoring, you sure you don't work as hard with all that? Probably more satisfying for sure.

Based on my experience it reminds not of the soil, but the same old bull s**t I had to put up with as an executive. :bull

Sam, interesting you should mention the Porsche Models.

Post by tonyespo »

I have fond memories of my years working at Hendrick Porsche. I still communicate with the guys and gals from time to time. I still look back at the fun I had driving some of the worlds greatest performing cars on the tracks. I look back at attending some of the best dining experiences one could imagine all paid for by Rick Hendrick. I look back to going to managers conferences at top vacation paradises and staying in 5 star hotels. But the top of the list of what I will never forget is the photo shoots with the Porsche models. I still have the photos and I will always have the memories.

I think some resumes or phone calls or whatever is the currently popular means of applying for a job, will be heading for the desk of the HR director at Hendrick Porsche posthaste.

Thanks for the reply,Tony. Good to know all is well with you and you are enjoying your retirement. Like most the others here, I miss your participation. I get on a couple times a day, but don't necessarily post.

I can't wait to retire myself, but I have a bit of time yet..

So great to see you again :D
