    :confused: This is embarrassing. Did nobody tell you Thanksgiving was cancelled? :( Sorry to be the one to tell you.


    If New Years is cancelled does that mean 2020 will keep on going? :rollfinger:

    This Thanksgiving is special. In all probability it will be my last. But @IM12STPN and @Teflon Mike ran down here a week and a half back from Michigan to have lunch with me. Considering that 1 had an 11 hour RT drive, and picked the other up on the way to finish a 3.5 hour RT run, I was sincerely humbled. Yeah the radiation etc. took a lot of my hair lol, but my daughter drove me to meet them at a restaurant where we were able to chat and laugh and remember the rides we did over the years. Gotta tell you, I love these guys like brothers. I have 1 final treatment coming up in 2 weeks that will hopefully allow me and the kids to make it back to the UP this Spring or early Summer. And if so, I would love to see these clowns again!

    I can't ride anymore but I am glad to have met some stand up folks on this site. And have been honored to have ridden with some of the best human beings bar none.

    I get to leave this life on my terms so to speak, at the top of my game. My kid and her mom both have homes fully paid for and money to take them into the next few decades, after which my 2 beautiful grand daughters will take it from there. I left home at 15 and never looked back. Made my way moving furniture, cooking, than military at 17. Been on every continent and every state, and in more countries than I can remember.

    Mountains, deserts, tropics, islands, submarines, helicopters, carriers, fighter jets. Skydiving, racing, Skiing, martial arts, and have had the pleasure of being introduced to so many people of all walks of life and cultures. I retired in early September on top of my career just before my 58th B Day and have a son who is a self made millionaire, a daughter in EMT and nursing, both who could not make a father more proud. I know some of you may not believe in God or an afterlife, but I do and look forward to meeting my 2 kids who passed in this life and 1 grandson. 2 shortly after birth within 3 days, and 1 who was a 16 year old beauty.

    So this Thanksgiving is extremely special for me. I look forward to spending time with my little brood. They have been strong and at my side since this hit last year and have been here for me 24/7.

    Here are the pics from our lunch..Dean, Mike...love you guys. The laughs and in depth talks and the freedom riding we did was a very important memory for me. You are both 2 fine men and it has been a great honor to have known you both. God bless you all on this day, and look back and see how many blessings you have all had to be so thankful for. My kind regards. Kurbs

    P.S.- @jwfuchs1 - 1 off color comment on my kid and I'll come back and haunt the [email protected] out of you!
