I am planning to go on some heavy duty bike trips in the future. I first have to get a good touring bike.

MJ,

Sorry/glad to read about your severance/resurrection. You'll do well. DW and I dragged our bikes out of the barn only to find that a mouse had lunched big-time on her seat eek! a rainy Saturday project

Re: Unscheduled retirement

I know that you folks are talking about a different "bike"
than I rode. Still, whenever I see the word "bike"
I get a little twinge. Sure do miss my "biker" days.
Hardest thing I've given up since retirement, probably because it was
purely a function of reaching geezer status. I see older guys (and gals) on "trikes". Can't do it.
I told a guy the other day "No motorcycle, no sex, no
drinking".......................... That's what he has to look forward to.
Anyway, I can still fish

Hmmm. Lets see, what kind of bait could catch a Hard-tail riding mermaid carrying a bottle Jack? A ponderable?

Re: Unscheduled retirement

MJ,

My wife was layoffed after 23 years with one company. She took almost a year off doing things that she likes to do. She now has a contract job that she enjoys. Initially, she was mad but that anger dissipated quickly.

Re: Unscheduled retirement

I was never "laid off", but I was fired a couple of times when I
got crossways with the brass. I realize I am not the easiest
person to work with (or live with) . Anyway, all my life I had this
theory that if someone didn't value me any more and didin't want
me around, I was happy to depart. I feel this way about business
and romance. Thus, I rarely got my heart broken in commerce
or in courtship.
