Preparing for Annual Conference

So, I thought I'd have a t-shirt made to wear at Annual Conference this year. On one side, in a posterboard kind of font, I'd have the words
RETIRED UNITED METHODIST CLERGY
On the other side, I would have a statement or slogan relating to that status. Here are the various statements I've been considering:
Getting out
while the getting
is good.


Ask me what
I really think.


I have kept
the faith.


The best is
yet to be.


A priest forever
after the order
of Melchizedek.


Free at last,
free at last.


Ask me about
my grandchildren.


No more meetings.
No more reports.
Now, I can do ministry!


Henceforth,
let no man trouble me,
for I bear in my body
the marks of the Lord Jesus.


Your complaint
has been referred
to a higher authority.
He doesn’t care, either.
Then it occurred to me that I could print these up as iron-on transfers. We could offer them to people at Annual Conference for a small donation to one of the Pathfinder's causes: the NAUMS Bible Fund; the Larry Richert Fund for high adventure scholarships; the Congo Scouting Ministry Fund.

We have a large number of people retiring this year, plus a lot of retirees from previous years who attend Conference. Ya think these would be popular?
