    Thank you all ! I slept till 6am today lol I can’t remember the last time I did this ! Up for from 2 to 3 am forever for work. But I actually stayed up like the big boys and watched the 10pm news can’t remember doing that either lol. I’m wired a little tight most say but in time I mite do something a couple days a week. See how I feel in 2021 but for now I’ve got enuff on my plate building the new home and catching up on some riding that I’ve barely done this summer. Thank you again !

    Lots of old farts on the VOG. I just turned 72. Still working, casual part time to put big dents in the days.

    I get that lol I’ve been off 6 days and it’s been cool and drizzling rain off and on since Sunday night. I’m staying with a club Brother till I leave oct 1st. About to loose it by this morning. While he was at work I jumped on his lawn mower and knocked out 5 acres. This is why I had to get out of here. 7 months waiting on 5 good ones if your lucky. Like you I’m quite sure by December I’ll be doing something a couple days a week. My wife laughs she says you’ll never make 60 days lol

    Congrats Mike, Enjoy the weather in Arizona. Lots of old retired farts there too. You can start a lawn mowing service for those that have them. One of the happiest days of my life was the day I retired. My goal was to retire before I died.
    55 years is a long old haul.
    Congrats again.:drive1:

    2000 sq ft 3 bedroom 2 bath 3 car garage and a in the ground pool for the Boss Lady. And I’m not doing any of the work. And that’s a good thing NotaHarley because I know nothing of that stuff. Wish I did. You obviously have some experience with this.

    I spent a little time down there in the early 80,s and that’s exactly how I was taught to roll in the July and August months. I’ve been waiting for this for a long Times, Thanks

    CONGRATULATIONS! It's nice to be able to roll over in the morning, slap the off button on the alarm and roll back over. :cool-99:
