No, but he wants to retire!

Now you got me there. When I met him, and while hairy and tending grey, I didn't really think retiring age. Lets chalk this up as 'ageless' in case this comment gets back to him Wink

Will he still volunteer?

That could be it as well; maybe he just wants to be a volunteer helping the train running without having to worry about administration? After all, he has certainly done his share of the administration work!
