Your kids are gonna hate you for this! 😂
I understand though, sometimes that's just what you have to do.

Lol nope, not in the cards for me, made a choice to not let that happen ✂
Ah well, fair enough. I made a choice too, when I was young, and met another old man in my grandparents apartment building, who was all alone at Christmas, no family and all his old friends had either passed or were busy with their own family, and I said to myself, "I don't want to be that guy!" 😂

As sad as it is I know 2 guys who have nobody else. Everyone around them has died, and to me it seems very boring. You can tell it takes a toll on their health. I try to hangout with the one and talk cars every chance I get. Sometimes we try and spend certain holidays together.

Glad you were able to sell the golf. I hope it went to a great and loving home! Maybe a family/friend or someone who will make an appearance here on the forum now and continue its saga?😃

Haha, I have lots to keep me busy even single. Too much stuff. I could retire today and never be bored.
My mountain biking, golfing, hunting/fishing, traveling, wakeboarding. Oh wrenching.

It did. Went to a buddy I've known for 15 ish years. We met in Montana then both of us ended up in WA. He has an 05 Golf TDI currently he was convinced to buy because of mine. So he bought mine and is selling his.

I got what I think was a fair good buddy deal.
Franko6s Cam is still on the way for it too.
Although it's really hard to put a price on everything I've done. A lot of those things are written up on this forum as well so he's in good hands

That's. impressive, I'm sure that person appreciates it. Well done.
I watched my dad live to his goal of 100. I'm sure he could have kept going, but he decided he had done all he could do for everyone in this world as well as all his friends and most siblings gone. So, he left. His sister, who was 9 months younger, (and I thought was going to live a loooong time) followed him a few short months later. Their baby sister is 102 and still bossing me around. I need to go play setback with her. Thanks for the reminder!
So, to summarize, life changes. The old people were once young and vital to this world. The young will become those old people. A good thing to keep in mind and respect.

Sounds familiar, then I changed my mind at age 38. My son, a dyed in the wool bachelor, will be 32 in August. Travels the world, (spends some time in your neck of the woods). I'm watching with interest. My daughter, on the other hand, gave me a playmate before she even grew up. Hope all is well wherever your decisions take you (it's all a matter of perspective anyhow)

Keep the rubber and diesel burning
