    I've loved keeping the old girl running. She's been there since 1956 and has a few good years left in her still - but unfortunately it'll need to be with another operator.

    The online business is just booming now for us and the 2 days a week devoted to the movie game was just costing me too much lost online income.

    What it did do was allow both me and the wife to work FULLTIME on our online travel business with little to no income for the first 2 years, and then it has supplemented us through a steady (if rather quick) growth period. We now have 3 employees (travel agents) and I'm soon be looking for a young and hungry assistant to help me with my side of things.

    But I'm rather shattered that I won't be "the guy who owns the drive in" anymore. I won't be able to answer "projectionist" when someone asks me what I do for a living. I suppose I've got to answer "dirty fucking spammer" or something like that now.

    I'm in Australia actually.

    And we've got 13 in the country.

    I was the furthest north (tropical) in the country.
