Road glide ultra
It took me a while to decide just before I retired what I wanted to get myself for the non work days. I looked at it as an investment in my happiness after the Army. It also worked into still having the camaraderie that I would miss after those final days.

It still keeps me tight with veterans and I meet many people from all walks of life and parts of the nation. It is even an easier meld with veterans that are out there also and some times it's only a patch or pin that you recognize immediately that bonds you together.

My toy getting out was not the one I kept, it was the one that I bought before Sturgis in 2013, Road Glide Ultra, that is my favorite toy.
It is also good therapy, "you never see a Motorcycle in front of a psychiatrist's office unless it belongs to them" So show us your toys!!!

No toy, just leaving the phone in the kitchen when I go to bed.

Isn't that nice? Not having to have a phone glued to you 24/7? Now I only deal with my wife when she's mad I didn't answer.

MSgt Don VandeBogert Got a laugh out of me on that one. Just last week I had a nasty voice mail from my wife because I forgot to turn my phone on when I went to the grocery store.

My grandson and my wife are the people I enjoy having around with. both can be challenging but are a lot of fun to "play" with.

Although I didn't retire from the Army, my favorite toy, the one thing that within my busy schedule allows me to find peace is my Nikon D300S camera. I love getting out and helping others capture those special moments in their lives. Of course making a few extra bucks while doing it isn't bad either!
