TO all Patch holders , Prospects and support members.

I have to agree with every one on the heat , 110 today took all of the fun out of my ride . But I am a slow learner I will be out there tomorrow. Hope everyone is well and safe.

Greetings Boss Skinner, patched members, fellow prospects & support,

great to see Brothers getting riding time.Sounds like lots of hot weather all over.Grumpy,Zoot and I did a little over 200 miles with the Korean War ride,plus they did more riding here,sure was hot but very rewarding to get to lead the ride.

Greetings, Boss Skinner, Patched Members, fellow Prospects & Support. It's just as if, the gates of Hell opened and swallowed my AO. Too hot to ride, without burning alive. Not too bad after the sun goes down but still hard on this old body. Still I try to catch some wind as often as I can. Being one of the newest prospects it saddens me that this year 2020 Put the kibosh on Nationals. Looking on the high side, we still have the year 2021 to make up for the loss. I have a feeling, deep in my heart, that this coming year, National's are going to be fantastic. I can't wait to meet, my great new family. My sincerest love,to you all. Thumper over and out. NVFFNV.

Greetings to all patched members, fellow prospects & support. Had a Great time with Grumpy and Doc Gonzo in Fort Wayne Indiana. Looking forward to meeting the rest of the team. The connection with these men was extremely rewarding for me. It felt to me, like instant friendship. The excitement of belonging to this group is almost overwhelming, it's been a long lonely road. Just had to vent and share my thoughts with someone. Until we meet face-to-face LLRBF-NVFFNV.

GREAT TO HEAR FROM YOU WITH ALL YOUR ENTHUSIASM. WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET. ALL OF US NAM VETS ARE ON THE SAME PAGE LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING YOU AND OTHERS WHEN I GET THE RELEASE FROM CANCER DOCTOR.

Greetings to all Brothers, Supports, Prospects & Well-wisher!!

Just got back from some much needed wind therapy. Quick run up to IL to welcome in a new Prospect, Thumper. Didn't get to spend a whole lot of time with him and Brother Grumpy, but from I see, he's a keeper! Very enthusiastic about being a Member.

Weather was perfect for the ride both ways. Betty ran like a top, really diggin' that Baker 6-speed tranny. Think the idiots must have taken a couple of days off. Didn't seem to be any one the roads LOL, if there were, there weren't where ever I was, so it's all good. It's amazing what a few hundred miles of wind will do for your soul.

Other than that, all's good in my AO. Singer is still on temp assignment, but really looking forward to retiring next month.
Going to have to be a little re-budgeting, but it'll all work out. Always does.

Just lettin' everyone know I'm alive and kickin'

Hello, Boss Skinner, patched members, fellow prospects & support..
it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, the sun is shining, it's 72 at 12:45 pm and I'm ready for a ride anywhere in the burgh..
Talked to Grumpy and Doc Gonzo yesterday, they were going to ride up to Ill. to patch in prospect Thumper, I wish I could have made the ride, but due to not having a sitter for Wilson, and having to attend a very important meeting at my American Legion post 538 Fort Black, I'd be there in a heart beat. sad to say the meeting is to determine whether or not we should keep out post running, we consist of guys my age and a couple of young guys who are all the members of our VFW, we have little to no income and the bills keep growing, it was a great hangout for me, because a few of my classmates are members and I get to see them often, the main reason people come is for sports and cheap drinks and only on the weekends, our post reached the grand ole age of 100 in 2019..
Hey boss I relayed to Doc that D9 ( Daneen ) and I will be at the national next year..
not much going on my AO, looking forward to our 4th of July weekend for two reason, 1. we get to spend quality time with good friends and 2. I will wear my cut to let other NamVet bikes about our brotherhood..
well until my next entry, peace, love and good will to you all

BROTHERS,SUPPORT AND PROSPECTS;

My rant for the time being is I hate not being able to make those PATCH IN CEREMONIES.My riding days are still in the future because I have no idea how the radiation is going to effect me and nobody else can say for sure either.I have made some short runs<one with LAAM ,was longest so far.Legs and feet can't seem to get the rhythm right just yet.Strength there is not yet back and that can be a real problem when you put legs out to hold you up.
On a up note thanks out to all for stepping up and taking care of BUSINESS.
Happy FATHERS day stay safe we have a large bar-be -que planned at daughters house.

Greetings to all Patch Holders, Prospects and Friends of the club. Had a talk with Grumpy this morning on the landline. Going to meet up for sit down next week. Looking forward to it. Everything in my AO looking good, nothing to report at this time. The weather is warm and the wind is blowing soft and Thunder is ready to roll. This is Thumper, over and out. NVFFNV.

Greetings; to our President, and all regional Presidents, Prospects, and supporters. Today is a good day, because yesterday I became a member of the NAM VETS! Steamer rode 500 miles to present my patches and certificate of membership. And I have to also say, about Steamers bike, I think he must have had a smile on his face for every mile he covered because the look and sound of his wheel would make a rock grin.
The respect I've been shown by addressing me as, "Mr." Hands is appreciated, but unwarranted. Just, "
Hands" is fine, thank you very much.
I am hard pressed to say how I really feel as a result of your congratulatory welcoming in this brotherhood of Nam Vets. In the Marine Corps. in the 60's I was one of six guys, Snake, Fritz, Habu, Spider, Pete, and Hands. We were called, the Animals. I got a Summary Court Martial for coming in 20 mins late in the Philippines, (Cinderella Liberty). The animals made a court martial pool for $.50 a chance on the various combinations of punishments from a summary court. We were tight. Those thoughts and feelings returned because of you guys. Thanks... Hands.

Greeting Boss Skinner, patched members, fellow prospects, & support,
Hoping this entry finds all in excellent health.
what the heck is going on with this weather here, 90's three days and then 70's for 5, raining today no humidity and the next week looks like all rain. Hope it clears up before the 4th weekend, friends and I are riding north of Pittsburgh to stay the weekend at the "Caboose Motel", it's all caboose's that were converted into motel rooms and are painted the color of the line they once were attached to.
My grandson Rocky Ace is growing like a weed, he's 9lbs 5ozs now, some babies are born at that weight. he hates baths and lets you know it, lol sounds like some old people.
new bike is running great, got hirise bars on it so far, Kerker slipons are next on the list and that will be next month.
going to order from Custom Engraving ltd a new custom derby cover with the 101st screaming eagle on it, the one from my 2012 is to small and won't fit, if anyone is interested in it we can swap or barter for a part..
well that about dose it for now, so until my next entry, god bless you all, stay safe and healthy, keep the shinny side up
