When I awoke this morning and looked at the clock it was 6:45 AM but I had planned to get up at 6:00 AM, something happened, either the alarm did not go off or it did and I just slept through it, either way I had to get going. Arriving at about 8:00 AM at the meeting site and already a good group was there but more came as time passed, so I was by no means late. During the meeting Ed announced that names were to be submitted for President and Vice President in the upcoming election, and Gregg happened to sort of raise his arm to stretch but suddenly everyone thought he was throwing his name in the ring. Next thing you know my name is hooked up in there as well since I’m standing right next to him. What irritated me was not being able to come up with any quick comment that might get a laugh, this is what happens when you wake up late and miss breakfast. If you want comedy and laughs -plus Gregg is great on Facebook, you might consider the two of us for those positions, but if you want real leadership I encourage all to stick with Ed and Chuck, with them we are all blessed on a personal level as well as an organization, to say the least. The right person at the helm makes all the difference in what happens to groups like ours.
Everything wraps up at 9:00 AM and we line up in 3 groups for the relatively short ride to the Lake. I am shepherding Doug and Cindy on their third ride with us, which is just a formality as Doug, who has been riding about as long as I have, is an accomplished rider on his mighty red Gold Wing.
I look over and sort of recognize this guy and yes it turns out to be Hans, one of my weekday rider friends. He is ready for a ride at just about any time from what I can figure
