Historian, Where are you?

Just realized I haven't seen a post from the Historian for a couple of weeks.

Where you at buddy?

I like you humble honesty and "I can do it" attitude.

If you're in the dumps, talk about it. You're not alone. I started a 2 week tour May 7 and was back home May 13 because the weather was awful. Then the weather was great May 14 to 20 but I just sat on my can all week.

You're a role model! don't disappear.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Laying low now. I think everyone was getting tired of The Historian's relentless boosterism and I found being 'him' very fatiguing. Also, my riding is limited now by my physical therapy and anticipated knee surgery, so I don't have much to contribute.

If you feel its a job to be one of the boards cheerleaders, then by all means stop doing it. If you dont mind doing it, by all means continue. I find your posts refreshing and uplifting.

And good luck with the recovery.

Thank you. As I wrote, appearing here as The Historian I felt I had a reputation to live up to and an obligation to motivate people. I don't any longer.
