Larry Gray's Retiring Today

Postby Jeff Silvey » Fri Jan 30, 2009 5:39 pm

Well I know I'm going to catch heck for this post but oh well. :)

I would like to to say CONGRATS to my BIl Larry Gray for retiring today. He has inspired me on my cub. He has worked on the implements when he was a lad. His father worked at an IHC dealership in Greenfield, IN in the 60's,70's, Dill Fields. He said he helped put the implements together. Some of you folks have meet him at different events the last two years.
He bought his first cub from Denny (lowboy 60 ) at Cub Fest 2007. Denny Thanks.
I know he's put up with a lot of crap with me but oh well thats life. :)
LARRY CONGRATS.

DITTO from here. Now that he's retired he won't have that much time to work on the cubs and stuff :? Grump

Congrats Larry. I wish you best and hope you enjoy many years of retirement.

Oh, and don't worry, We've all put up with a lot of crap with Jeff. :)

Congratulations on retirement, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do mine. One word of caution about retirement though, You never get a #^&$% day off.

And a word to the wife, Retirement means twice the husband and half the money.

to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the
government lest it come to dominate our lives and interests." Patrick Henry
