I told you it was going to be a busy spring.
My son is graduating from Old Dominion University this Saturday. He’s actually been done with classes for a while, but he had some administrative things to take care of before he was able to walk. All done, it’s going to be official after Saturday.
We weren’t able to afford to get him a lavish gift so I’ve been working on a project for him. I can’t elaborate right now because you never know who might be lurking here and I don’t want to spill the beans.
That project has taken up pretty much all my free time since Monday hence the lack of posts. That and I just haven’t had much to say that hasn’t already been said and better by other people.
In other news, the base stickers on myexpired last month. I tried to get them renewed about the middle of the month but they told me that I need to go through Motorcycle Safety Class again. Apparently, they changed policy and we have to do it every three years now.
I understand there’s a concern about the young kids getting bikes and doing stupid stuff to get themselves hurt or killed, but you’d think they’d give a retiree with 30 years of experience riding motorcycles a break.
To add insult to injury, retirees are given low priority for the classes, I signed up for the 13 and 14th of this month, but I don’t get a guaranteed seat, even though when I signed up there were seats open; active duty can bump retirees. That means I take time off work to show up for the class and I may or may not actually get a seat. If I don’t get a seat, I have to wait for the next class and try again. No telling how many times I’ll have to try before actually getting in a class.
Weekend after next is the Women on Target clinic at Airfield shooting club that I’m going to be helping instruct.
Busy busy busy.
