Hey Folks! I am still here!

drsfefadrsfefa MemberPosts: 397 Member
DRSFEFA still counts.
I still stay in touch with Bue Eyes. She has remarried and is happy.

I haven't had much to say for the last 5 years, and I have been here since 2004. But I am still here and never left. Some updates:

I have been at my Aerospace job for 10 years now.

I lost my Dad this last Monday. You who know me know what a challenging thing that was. Our world is a better place because he was here.

Alopecia. I am a bald man now! Getting older is not for sissies!

I moved again. Farther out, California City. Now I am a full 100 miles+ from Los Angeles, away from the madness!

Life is good.

I hope all my friends here are well too!

:-)

    He wasn't ever gone! I could see him lurking on here from time to time. He was just being quiet.

    Sorry about your dad Drsfefa.

    Having you back and more active on the forum sounds good to me!

    Questions:

    1) How long is your commute to and from work now?
    2) Do you still see Coggeshall frequently?
    3) Do you still have your CCW licence?
    4) Have you put in your order for your new Indian V-twin yet?
    5) Do you still ride your bike every day?

    Enquiring minds want to know..........

    Maintain your cool, brother, and ride safe!

    Great to see you back and posting! That's a good amount of life change, but you seem to be taking it in stride. Very sorry to hear about losing your dad: my condolences to you and your family on that.

    How do you like California City, have friends that have lived there for some time.
    Where are you working?
  • drsfefadrsfefa Member Posts: 397 Member
    So far I am quite happy here. Much nicer place. And I am still at IDG/PPG.

    I think I remember you from the old forum.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.
  • drsfefadrsfefa Member Posts: 397 Member
    Out of the past - it is true, I never left. I do lurk, and am glad to still be here since 2004!

    I sold the Yamaha after a beautiful Harley fell in my lap.

    I waited five years from the Sheriff's letter. Walked through. I finally have my CCW permit back.

    The kids still don't talk to me, but Bue Eyes and I still manage to talk every week or so. Remarried, she is doing just fine, her happiness while it is not my place to say, may be different. So many cant understand why no animosity, I stick by my guns that regardless of changes, you do not throw almost 30 years of life and memories away to be bitter. I appreciate all God has given us.

    My left knee and bad right foot are worse than ever. I now have permanent disability handicap parking. Including the plate for the Harley. That's good for me, but I'd gladly trade it in for the mobility!

    I'll ride her as long as I can:
