Gentlemen (and ladies) - as Mark Twain once said ..... "The rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated!". I'm alive and doing very well in SW Florida, and within a week now, I hope to see most of you in Cherokee for a bit of a reunion. Wes, thanks for trying to keep Uncle Fuzzy's Charity Ride alive in my absence. As you know, it's mostly an excuse to spend a couple days with terrific riding friends we haven't seen in a while, but we also do good work by throwing in a donation to support the New Hampshire Fish and Wildlife canine unit. This invaluable unit is a major factor in finding lost folks who have wandered off into the wilds, or maybe it's a mentally challenged individual who wandered away from their yard and have gotten lost. The canine unit isn't officially funded by the state and survives to do it's terrific work through donations for food, health care, and training. Even a couple hundred dollars in donations goes a long way towards keeping them fed and healthy. I know that this 'charity' is important to Wes and Belinda (being the consummate "dog people" they are) and I hope you'll help them keep this small friendly charity ride alive.
I wish I could be there this fall, but I'll have to live it vicariously through you folks this year. However, I plan to make a trip back to northern New England in Aug./Sept of 2018 and will rent a bike for a week to be able to ride with old friends from New England ..... (and those wackos from Long Island). I've moved a long ways south, but as you can see, I haven't "lost that loving feeling" for you guys yet! I still laugh my ass off every time I think of last years Saturday evening group dinner.
See you in Cherokee!
Peace and love,
