Old soldiers never die - they just fade away!

Last Update: February 04, 2021

So said, General Douglas McArthur.

  • Lotta truth in that!
  • Here's an old pilot... A tired old pilot.
  • An old pilot who has been on Wealthy Affiliate for 2 years.
  • One who has written over 650 blogs... Had nearly 9,000 followers...
  • Yes, has written over 25 books on Amazon...
  • Has been to over 40% of the world.
One who chose to serve...
  • His country... His religion... His friends...
  • With dignity... Pride...Without complaints...
  • But, one who is tired, who wants to write another book.

I'm so thankful for WA...
  • Met some wonderful friends from all over the world.
  • Have helped some people by encouraging them...
  • Ruffled a few feathers by some who did not appreciate my writing...
  • WA has offered me great training... wonderful opportunities...
  • Am I unhappy with WA? Absolutely NOT...
  • Do I encourage people to join and stay with WA?
  • Without any doubt... I will continue to encourage people.
Quitting? Absolutely not!
  • Just easing out over the next few months...
  • Won't be here as much, but will continue to publish occasionally.
  • Not going to be answering every post... so don't feel bad.

I love this quote by Katherine Ellison:

"You have to be able to slow down enough to switch your focus away from all the ways things could be better, to know how good they already are."

Doesn't get any better!

Hi Joe,

I can attest, I have enjoyed your blogs and looked to them for inspiration and motivation. I commend you and thank you for your efforts!

Haven't heard from you for a bit so I came to check-in. I wish you the best of luck in writing your new book!

I will do a little searching on Amazon for your writings.

Best wishes to you!

Hi Joe, you are a power pack of motivation, I missed your blog so had to come searching.

Best wishes with the authoring of your next book.

We all only have so much time and energy, the best bet is to invest it where the return is maximized.

Take care, your input will be missed.

I have truly enjoyed our friendship on this platform.
I have always been a big fan of your posts.
And enjoyed all the support and encouragement I received from you.

One of the first person I followed because your name was Joe - my father and brothers were named Joe, so for me there was that unspoken connection between us.

Fly high my friend!
Let us know the title of your new book, so we could look for it when it's in Bookstores.

I really hate to see you go.
Take care, stay safe & be well.

All the best to you, Joe.
Barbara 😊😊😊

Always look forward to your posts Joe. They kind of go well with my morning coffee. Short and to the point--Cut out all the flowery paragraphs. I will still look for your posts and enjoy reading them even more when they do show up. Sometimes, it is said, less is more. Enjoy your life, my friend, and keep ruffling those feathers.
