    I'm not a good entertainer, and I'm not very interesting.

    I would like to congratulate you on your retirement.

    Meh...nothing to see in my neck of the woods aside from a couple state parks, and even the good hotel here has subjects of substantial interest to me frequenting it. There is a retired ISP guy in my neck of the woods that I think every cop no matter if you are active or retired should spend 15 minutes talking to....but that's just my take on it.

    If you happen to find your way to the northern half of this state, give a holler. I know of a fantastic range where they have the an amazing rental selection, and great food not too far out. I'd pick up the tab on the rentals, and a few boxes of ammo to boot. Plus I'd like a quick conversation with a brother from a state on a less horrid (perhaps I should say torrid? After all the politics in this state are about to f*** many) trajectory than here. Offer expires when I leave.

    Pro tip: If you happen to find yourself in St. Louis do *not* go south of the little boat museum that's just south of the arch on the river front. Just trust me on this. Also....skip East St. Louis. It's as friendly as the Austin/Englewood neighborhoods after sundown. It's really not much friendlier during daylight in my opinion.

    I can’t give you a compelling reason, but you’re welcome at my house anytime.

    Richmond has a pretty stellar craft beer scene...if you’re into that kinda thing. We can just day-drink and Uber. Before or after we open my gun safes.

    Wow! That is less than an hour from my current work assignment.

    I make killer BBQ, so I am usually disappointed when I go to BBQ joints, but I may have to make an exception and try this place.

    Well crap! I had no idea there were other GTers around here. Are you and @Trench Sweeper free this weekend to meet up and check that place out?

    If you visit Denver I'd like to buy you a beer, and I promise not to put anything in it. Would also be an opportunity for you to say "it's just weed" a lot.

    I'll put you up in Houston for a couple days. There's strip clubs, and fat people. Okay, I might have over-simplified that.. There are lots of female entertainment venues, with some of the hottest girls in the country. There are also LOTS of really nice places to eat. If you are into steaks, we have some really nice steak restaurants-Mastros, and Steak 48 to be counted in that list. Our city usually makes the "fattest cities in America" list each year. We know how to EAT. We also have a water-stained-brown beach just south of us-people call it Galveston which I think translates to "medical waste dump" in native speak. Lots of other things to see and do while here. Nasa Space Center, plenty of museums, Golf (if you are into that), plenty of outdoor recreation, places to hunt year round (different animals in season at different times), both indoor and outdoor ranges, Cockrell Butterfly exhibit, . There's always something to do in Houston at any hour of the day or night. It's a busy place that is short on "beautiful" unless you attend the aforementioned strip clubs.

    You need to come see me so I can show you how an old boring person lives after retirement.

    @TBO is always welcome here.

    And I want to do a ride along with @pgg00 and turn on the lights for a traffic stop.

    Yer welcome to visit me here in "Vacation Land". I don't drink it, but have several bottles of bourbon. If you stop by in late May I'll take you to the Black Fly Festival...always a good time, but bring your own jug of bug dope.

    Not to mention some of the best Mexican food and best seafood in the country nearby.
