Doctor is happy with my blood work which means Ellen and I are elated.Thanking all CLUB BROTHERS for prayers etc.

National VP and I are in some discussions about National Meeting sorry to say we have a problem due to Corona Virus.We aren't kids anymore so being bullet proof has wore thin. We are old FIGHTERS with health problems and we will have to weigh all the factors in.We do have time before we pull the plug.This is a very serious situation not to be taken light of.Follow guide lines and stay safe

Thanks to all for stepping up when asked to do so.Remember to POST so we know your status.

a great morning Boss Skinner, officers, patched members, Doc Gonzo, fellow prospects & support
Hoping this day finds everyone in great health.
finding out staying in during this crisis isn't all that bad, it's like being on vacation,or retired, hey wait a minute I am retired, oh well, living the dream.
gonna try and get the scooter to the bike shop today to get the new tires put on, temp is around 40 right now at 9am, supposed to get to about 52, we'll see, but 61 tomorrow and rain.
so far none of my friends or family have contracted the covid-19, so glad. been watching a ton of movies and I should be doing unfinished work I have and I keep putting it off, got that retired attitude, you know, I'll get it tomorrow, no rush, lol
BTW I got my prospect patches but don't know when I'll be able to get my vest to the cleaners to get them sewn on, soon I hope.
Take care all, stay healthy, see ya on the flipside

Greetings Patch holders, Support, Prospects and Lookers interested in who we are.
Ya'll be keeping the Faith in the midst of all this uncertainty, we been thru much worse being the Nam Vets we are, hunkering down and putting up a winning fight we've done before.
Here in Idaho we can still get out and ride and do the necessities as needed keeping our distance to help protect each other from this virus going around.
My prayers for each of us stay healthy and safe as we endure this time, and none of this keeps us from our Regional and Natl Runs this year. We got Prospects in waiting. Proud of each one showing your metal to join our Brotherhood.
Let's keep in touch and encouragement extended as we fight this head on.
On the bright side "PT postponed till further notice." Lol
Stay Healthy

Greetings All!

Just a quick HOWDY ALL,

up in MI visiting Lori.

Figure Friday I'll drive (ya, I'm cagin' it this time) down and meet up with Wall Street. Monday I'm headed to Zoot's, probably overnight there then on to Digger's to say hi to them, then head for home.

Hopefully they won't have stopped interstate travel by then, if they do, I'll have to retreat back to Lori's and hole up till it's over I guess.

Anyway, that's what's happening in my AO.

Peace out

are closed til Apr. 1st.
Rain and rain again, so knees in the breeze is out.

Good Morning, Boss Skinner, Officers, patched members, fellow prospects & support
Hope this entry finds everyone in great health,
Got a call from Grumpy yesterday, first time talking to him and it was a pleasure for sure. for those of you who don't have and need my phone number, (412)613-1349, know that I don't answer numbers that I don't recognize, so make sure you leave a message.
Just want to shout out to Doc Gonzo, I understand you were under the weather a little last week, hope that's past and your up and at em.
As for me I'm finally feeling pretty damn good, now to keep that damn pandemic away from my doors would be awesome, being retired is great but especially great when you don't have to face the likes of a demon like covid-19.
got two new tires for my scoot, they came out of Philly UPS which freaked me out a little, several case of covid-19 were found there, we'll see, I bought Metzlers this time, I had Shimkos this last time and I was impressed with the millage, 5k plus on the front and 4k plus on the rear, hoping the Metzlers will out perform the Shimkos.
Don't know about all of you out your way, but the bald headed eagle Governor Of Pa. Tom Wolf (in cheaps clothing) ordered that all bars, restaurants and nonessential business's closed for two weeks, I don't think this is long enough or will prevent a bigger outbreak. craziness, people are hoarding everything, hey if I have to I'll do what the bears do..
Oh well I've said enough, you all take care and be safe, be talking to you soon

GREETINGS Brothers, Supports, Prospects and friends as yet unknown

just a couple lines from my AO let y'all know I'm still kicking.

Headed up to Michigan (cage) today to see an old friend who caught the big C and spend some time with my Daughter.

Black Betty still in shop, or in shop again, I forget which. Wrench thinks he's about got the speedo/odometer mystery figured out. Here's hoping. It's always something I guess don't matter if it's an old bike or new.

Not much else new' missed a beautiful day to ride yesterday, even had a ride planned out, but no sleep the night before left me too tired to try to ride. Then rained buckets last night, still raining today.

Well that's all for now folks, ride 'em like you stole em; hope to see all of you at National

Hello to all.
Well the Corona virus has struck . They have rescheduled my honor flight to next September . I guess taking a bunch of old guys' to the cesspool of Washington didn't sound like a good ideal right now. It should still be there this fall.
It is getting warmer every day. I rode to work today and hope to all week.
It is great to see every one posting . Keeps us up to date on each other. LLRB TWIN

Hello Boss Skinner, Officers, patched members, fellow prospect and support,
Hoping this entry finds you all in great health & wealth. Feeling 95% better, just a sinus infection the settled in the left side of my face, but getting along well. Took a little ride with some friends who I worked with in the P.O. to the Greendance winery in Mount Pleasant, Pa for some wind and Vino therapy, felt great motoring down the road and the wine was well worth the trip, D-9 and I had Raspberry wine, good stuff.
Hoping the weather starts to kick some butt so D-9 and I can take a trip down to Beckley W.V. to meet up with Doc Gonzo, BTW great hearing from you Doc.
Not much to report except my grandchild will be making his/hers grand entry in about 80 days, getting excited..
well stay healthy, keep those hands washed and away from your face and we'll beat this virus, god love you all...peace

Salutations all!

First, let me send personal prayers to all those with health issues! THRILLED to see Prez doing so well! Now the rest of you sickies get to feeling better as well!

I had some kind of bug on Friday that had me down, but am already on the mend from it. Poor Doc!..I felt so badly for him seeing me sick and not being able to doing anything about it. Not sure which is worse... a sick medic or a corpsman unable to help! 🙂 Public apologies to my guy.. hopefully I wasn't too much of a beeaatch! 🙂

Ordering garden seeds today...woohooo!!! Let the planting season begin!

Politicians in charge of clock time stole an hour of sleep from me again last night...good news is I'll get it back in November!

Will start working on a project for National next weekend.. yay!

That's it for now..


Singer out!

Well, 2020 is going to be another year for more personal firsts. Seems the Abused body is getting to need some more parts added. First: 2/27 Dr Swann, Springfield,MO 3/2 Dr Duncan, Springfield,MO 4/2 Dr Fintel, Chicago,IL hopefully I get out of Chicago within a couple of weeks. Then back to the Springfield Doctors on 5/6, Pre Surgery class, with cutting on the 5/26 with removal of stitches on 6/10. So Im most likely will be with walking sticks and pickup. So that's the schedule, God willing.
