(NGC) just like that, BAM.......
« on: October 05, 2022, 12:39:08 PM »
I am retired, y'all!
An overnight sensation after 45 years. 
I will be leaving the Rat Race (Seattle) next Monday, drifting toward The Winter Palace in Arkansas.
John Shurke, Mike Taylor, Wes Stevens, Dusty; there is a new Norge in the neighborhood.
I plan to make my first Louisiana event next month.
Hope to see a bunch of y'all there.

Congratulations Bill! I'm sure you'll make the most of it. I couldn't stay away from our Cidery so I am greeting visitors 3 days a week. Plus sampling product of coarse.
Cheers

Congratulations!!

I've been retired since Sept 2021 and have loved every minute of it. You will too!
Best time ever...

Even nicer that our neighbors Tony and Ellie (79 and 81!!) invited me to ride with them and have shown me some of the great roads around here. Sometimes I can even keep up with them!!!

Ride safe and often,

Jeff

No chance at all! But I see that you may be at the Cajun rally. I will quite likely see you there.

Thank for all your good wishes. It is pretty exciting, but also a bit scary.
I have gotten my nephew an internship as a surveyor where I have worked for the last 20 years.He will be living in my house here and keeping the hobos out.
I am leaving Seattle on Monday for my Winter Palace in Arkansas. I plan to take 5 days.
Am still struggling to resolve Cookie's estate but think I can resolve it long distance thru the magic of the internet
Expect to see me at many more Midwest and southern events.
It is good to be retired and have a motorcycle.

Yep.  Im planning on doing the Cajun rally.  Id really like to see you there.  We can eat good food.  I guess we have to swap lies.   

Take care Bill
