Desmo My man! Nothing... Everything!

How are you, and all my friends on this site? Hint, that's almost everybody with a few obvious exceptions.

Looks like I missed a little thread drama, dang it. Thanks to those that know me and defended my dubious honor.

My current work has changed for the better. New position of my making. AND 32 hour weeks, every Friday off. It's okay to hate me a little bit. I think my wife does on that one.

Finally, when and where is the rally? The FJR is in need of some miles and I need to rid myself of some vacation time.

See post 560. Stranger than fiction.

In for the long story.

A delightful thread indeed. I enjoyed being reminded of why I chose to stay on active duty a few more years, after qualifying for retirement. The extra money in the pension meant I didn't have to go to work, after retiring from the military.

I do have a question about the slang. Just how fast is this "maching" supposed to be? Since 60 mph is only around 80 feet per second, 600 mph would be about the speed of a .45 ACP bullet from a 4" barrel, which is still quite a bit slower than the speed of sound.

regards,
Joe
