Hey man I hear ya and trust when I say I do smell the roses along the way, for I know every day is not promised. Thank you for your service brother and we'll always be there when you need a shoulder. But you know that. Besides, we see our retirees like an old fire engine, just because you creak and moan and rusty around the edges don't mean you're ready for the scrap yard. We just spit shine ya and throw you in the parade. Be well my friend and God Bless.

Dude! It's been a minute! Just kidding. I know how things can get. Just glad you can make it back on. Yeah, things are going great. We are having Thunder Beach this weekend. It's something like Bike week in Daytona, but with better beaches. We will get MUCH action this weekend with those guys in town, but it's all good! I hope you have a great weekend brother and stay safe out there.
