Hokie Stone from the Virginia Tech quarry for my headstone.  Exactly what I wanted.

Is that a traditional parting gift?

Looks like a fine group of people!

Grey dolomite, is a fitting description for an old fossil like you!

ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!


Hope you don't need it anytime soon!

Drifts, congratulations to you and your young Hokie.  Enjoy the ride; VT is a special place.

No Bossman, the Hokie Stone for a gravestone was an item that I requested, unique wish and gift I suppose.  They never questioned the peculiarity of my request to engrave my own Hokie Stone marker. The Department is a fine group of folks.

Same here Doug.  I hope not to need it for a bit, but I definitely do not fear the end.  I've done about all I can do, considering my depravities of chewing, smoking, drinking, and questionable diet.  Had a recent physical with wonderful blood work results, had my colonoscopy and 6 beautiful polyps removed (photos available on request), and next week I am headed to the skin master to have my itchy nodule treated.   I am ready for whatever.

Off to a bluegrass fest – music, barbeque, corn hole, and stout women with few teeth.

That's perfect.  In 45 years when you need it, they'll all be made of faux stone.

Stalk softly and carry a green stick.


Good on you Muddy. Like others have said - hope you are able to place it in storage and when it's required folks will scratch their head and ask "Where is it? I know it's around here somewhere!"

Congrats on your retirement.  Have fun living out your days as a hermit up in the hills.


Welcome to the world of us ole non-employed farts. Wish you well and a long time to enjoy all you have waited for. Be safe


never let a day go by without telling your children how special they are----make a child smile today and gain a friend for life


Congratulations, dude. Good work!

Way to go Muddy.

I still like you and am happy for you even of you are an asshole


Look at how many people are happy they don't have to work with you anymore!

Congrats mudwall.  Enjoy your free time.  Cool token of appreciation from the campus.
