Thread: thebeck is signing off
I have really enjoyed sharing our love for perfume for the past six years. I've decided to retire from working, and will be on a fixed income. I won't be buying samples or bottles any more. I do have more than a lifetime supply of some seriously good scents.
My disposable income will now be alotted to travel.
Goodbye, and keep up the good work.
thebeck - Ken
The best of luck to you. Take care.
Enjoy your retirement, Ken. I am sure you will be impressing all the locals while wearing scents like Puredistance M from your fine collection on your travels.
Wishing you all the best...

Though if you travel, you are bound to sniff lots of scents that you may have an urge to comment upon back here. It's darn hard to pass by interesting shops.
Best of luck in your new chapter!
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
Best of luck in your retirement and travels.

Adios Ken. The journey has been more enjoyable having had you along for the ride.

safe travels ...
I've trademarked the color bleu
Good for you. I'm sure I'll reach this point too where I'm ready for the next chapter and chasing the next great fragrance will be less of a priority.
Thank you for all of your input ken. And may you experience wonderful travels.
Best wishes to you in this new chapter of your life. It's been a pleasure to share this space with you.
You'll be back
But best of luck until you are.
I hope every day brings more happiness than the last. Enjoy your travels and please do check in from time to time.
I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?
Congratulations on your retirement, and good luck in the future!
