Hey... I voted in that poll! I went with the majority.... he has his priorities in order. :) Second choice would have been that it'll never last... I think both are true.<P>I was going to post on here to tell everyone about the poll but when I went back to get the info for the post it was already over. Sorry guys!N

I would have to agree with the poll. As I said in my previous posting, I feel Garth is doing the right thing. He should put family first. We will all miss him, but still. We all need to respect, admire, and follow Garth's ways. I am not saying everyone should quit their job, but put more time into their family. You never know when a family member may not be around to enjoy that time with. Remember this esspecially during this holiday time.<P>KevinN

I'm a little disappointed that more people didn't vote that he had his priorities in order. How can anyone expect Garth to choose the fans over his precious little girls? N

I don't think he should retire totally, I think he should say he is taking a leave of absence or something like that and still make new albums here and there but thats it.N

Ok.. what does "it will never last" mean? <P>Meaning, he will never retire?<P>TommyN

Yep it means he can never retire I think. Some don't think he will, I don' think he will neither and if he does it will not be for long. :)N
