    Well folks.. the day has come. This morning I sat down at the title company and sold my pizza business and the property it occupies. It was not long after the 19th anniversary of our first day in business. As the Grateful Dead said; "What a long strange trip it has been".

    No doubt, I will spend less time here as my day to day has less and less to do with pizza. I am not saying good-bye and I am sure I will chime in but I am also sure I will not be around as much.

    The buyer is a great guy. I know he has spent quite a bit of time on the TT. I am not sure if he has a handle yet, but I hope that he jumps in and benefits from all the helpful folks around here.

    That's it for today. My wife and I are going out for a nice dinner and it will not be pizza.

    I've read your posts here for years, amd I've always been impressed with your depth of knowledge. The technical stuff that is so important in this business is something that you seem to have researched in order to make the right decisions, but it's your business sense and experience that I've valued most. Thanks, and the best of everything to you going forward.

    Thanks for all the kind words.

    Amazing to sit at home in the evening and not wonder if the phone is going to ring.

    You can find it on the Rockiesbroker link in my Sig. Please do call or stop if you are wandering in this part of the world! But not if oven is broken, the cars are parked on the sidewalk, employees came to work in sandals, new driver did not show up, computer isn't working, assistant manager is drunk or the power is out. Haha
