So Long Old Friend


I think I better understand how the cowboys felt as they had to put their trusty cayuses down, after 62 years of riding it was determined that my career as a mad biker must come to an end. My recent health problems have caused some stamina and balance problems. Not 4 hours after letting it be known, a young tenderfoot who was looking to move up from his pony to a stallion brought cash in hand and the deal was made. I took solace in the fact that he reminded me of a younger self only thinner and taller with hair. As he rode into the sunset, strangely south, I felt a moistness trickling down my face, my wifes arms surrounded my shoulders, "It's like a big piece of my life went down the road" I said " Oh, but we have so many adventures ahead" she replied. The right words at the right time.
