Retired as of this Friday!

Posted by Wills Creek on Wednesday, March 21, 2012

I can be officially be classified as an Old F**t as of this Friday  I'm retiring from ODOT  after 30 +  years of going out in the middle of the night pushing snow and all other odd roadwork  jobs .  I look forward to more banjo picking and playing with friends and going to festivals throughout the year without worrying about being called out to work in the middle of the night.  Oiling up the fishing reels this weekend  and going try my luck on the eyes  getting ready to bite. Banjo playing and guitar playing and working a few new songs for the band in between. After  aweek or two of fun then I'll have to settle into the honey du list. I hope the wheather doesn't get to hot to fast this year   Wish me luck gang !
