I stopped off yesterday at my previous place of employment :) to sign some papers and to pick up my new retiree ID card and free retiree parking permit (that will allow me to park anywhere that I like on campus). After I got my parking permit I told that gal at the Parking Services window that I'll be needing a free permit for my bike as well. She says oh no, you'll have to pay for a MC permit, those aren't free.  :o

WTF? I can park my cage for free where ever I like but I can't get a free MC permit? Cheap bastards!

Wow, Conrad you have been retired, what.... like 2 days and are already suffering from 'old man' crankiness! Now get some pants that come up to your armpits and we'll call you Grandpa Simpson.

 :rotflmao:

It is odd that you cannot get a free pass for the bike but you can for the car. Maybe retirees on motorcycles have not been much of a problem in the past so it has not yet come up?

It was 7 F degrees last night, and dropped a bit of snow on us- maybe 5, or 6" of the finest power- it looks like talc and a snowblower turns the area into a 'white out'. It is supposed to go to -7 F tonight, which is about as cold as it gets around here so that might be out low for the year. After spending months using a lot of effort not to have the woodstove overpower the house (I hate having to open the door and chuck that excess heat), now I have to keep flogging it to hold the house at a reasonable temperature. In a week I will probably still be flogging it, the outside temp. will be 40 F and every living thing in the house will be begging for mercy.... :-)
