Recently Seamus who is now back in the States on a duty assignment in the big sky country of Montana contacted me to let me know that he and his wife Laura were riding in their first ever Montana MS 150.
The Courier Hot Line Rings
Billy: Nova Courier, this is Bill may I help you?
Seamus: Fehr, Captain Seamus here, alive and well in the great State of Montana.
Billy: No way, Seamus glad to hear your voice! I have thought about you often with the whole War thing and all.
Seamus: Fehr, you're going to have to call me Sir, Okay?
Billy: Seriously Seamus, I mean Sir?
Seamus: Yes, seriously.
Billy: Well Sir you sound good, have you fared well thus far in your USMC Transfer?
Seamus: Yes Fehr I am doing good and enjoy life out here with a Reserve Unit in Billings. My wife Laura and I are riding in the Montana MS 150 could you help us get one step closer to our goal with a donation?
Billy: Sure thing Sir, Saint Lissa will do it from her work and the BOA will match her contribution doubling the In God We Trust Units immediately.
Seamus: Thanks Fehr. God, Country and the MS Society thanks you as well. It should be a good ride even though it will be the longest one I have been on in a while.
Billy: Ahhh Sir, 150 miles is nothing, especially in 2 days with toon food and beverages every 12 miles. You and Laura should make it a real challenge and ride straight through the 150 on day one. Camp out, have a few beers and start cheering on the rest of the riders as they finish what you guys accomplished the day before.
Seamus: Fehr, are you getting belligerent with me?
Billy: No Sir, no way.
Seamus: Well then Fehr at ease, thank you for your time and support. I will send a ride report and some pictures when this thing is in the bag.
Billy: Aye Aye Sir, you and the wifey have a good ride.
I received their ride report yesterday and it sounds like they had a motivating ride. Good Job Sir and Laura!
