The Colonel’s Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day!

Good “Thursday!” Morning “Burroughs’ Posse,” and all great connections. Welcome from the “Eagle’s Nest” on the road, on the Harley for the “RIPRIDE4Vets 2021” in Okemos, MI! — 17 June 2021!

Day 15 of the "RIPRIDE4Vets 2021" is over – Had a great homemade breakfast with SSG William Jones and his wife Iris in Elkton, KY another great RP member that I’ve known for years and then rode the long 529 miles up into the Midwest for Okemos, MI where I connected with my wife and LTC Wayne Brandon and his wife Terry. (See Pictures below)…

Day 16 of 21 – Headed out this early this morning for adventurous ride all the way to Duluth, MN with my wife Bella over 693 miles up over Lake Superior from the upper part of Michigan into Minnesota for the evening – pictures will follow tomorrow

Today’s Message is: “Whatever Happens Day!” Why Not?

“I believe whatever happens is something that happens for a reason and the “RIPRIDE4Vets 2021” is a great example of that over the last 15 days. So, in the end don’t sweat the small stuff – just move forward and enjoy the ride!" — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
