The sheer pleasure?

I have to say, as practical as I find my Newt, even if I retire I'll still
be using it, just because ...

Try writing with it -- poetry or prose, notes to things or whatever?  Maybe
take up another hobby and use your Newton to keep track of it?

And your wife's idea about the hobby side of things is a good one.

HOW ABOUT ...learning to program for the Newton and getting involved in one
of the projects folks have going here?

But of course, if you really can't stay with it, all the best to you, and
you're welcome to come back when you feel that inevitable pull homewards to

We'll be waiting ...      B-)
