Generally do retirees, I guess that you've seen, interact with the Forest Products Lab after they've retired? Or do they sort of separate?

RM

It depends. I mean, I, I'm one of the, one of the few that come back a lot. I mean, I'm here almost every day. Now, I don't get in here at seven o'clock in the morning and leave at three like John Zerbe, but I, I get in, you know, ten, eleven o'clock and stay for a couple hours and then have something else to do, which reminds me, ok. And I have something else to do, then I just go do that. So, yeah, a few people do a little bit. I'm probably one that comes in a lot more than a lot, than most people do. Most people, you know, the first year, two years, they might come in, mess around a little bit, finish up some stuff and then, you know, that's it, and you never see them. And other people, well of course, just when they leave, they leave, they never come back. I think especially people who don't have a career here, or their career is, you know, part of the Forest Products Lab. Mine was and is, so, I come back.
