So much for retirement!!!!

Hey Guys,
I haven't been around much lately. To get you caught up, I retired from 25 years of teaching in Alabama. My plan was to do some bartending and contract work with our school system. Unfortunately, the federal money was pulled and so was the contract work. As much as I wish it would, bartending does make up the difference. Therefore, I pushed the panic button and decided to go back to work. This year I will begin teaching inner city Chattanooga. That will allow me to make all of my Alabama retirement plus get a whopping raise from my original salary. I decided there are about 5 things that I actually like and money is one of them.
Thanks
Phil
P.S.
I still plan on bartending

Oh, but they did. That was the only way I could double my income. So, I am good.

Well done Ref.

OK, so it worked out on the plus side. And you'll still plan to tend bar. But will you still have time to go for an occasional ride with us?

Ride often. Ride far. Ride safe and do much more of both.
Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach him how to surf the GWOF and he won't bother you for weeks, maybe months
I'll be waitin' for you at the end of the road.
If everything had gone as planned, it would not have been an adventure.
