All about Willyo(me!) a short story of about 20 years
Roadpig,(willyo) a little history.
Here is my second attempt to put a credible “Life Story” to words. I’ve attempted this before with little success, maybe I’m more complicated than I ever thought, but more likely, Its not a very compelling subject. Certainly not enough to draw visitors waiting, with baited breath, for my rantings. But before I rally any of my pet peeves, pehaps a little history is in order.
This story began in late 1980, and even before if childhood life is included, after I was discharged from the Army(at the age of 40!). Also another story for the future.I returned to the New Jersey shore, and a house I had many fond memories of, and many fine summers in. Was Granny’s house. I worked as a Chef(school trained!), Fisherman(and a clammer), rented boats, and did odd jobs(for some pretty odd folks) to make ends meet. BTW- did I mention that I’m a biker, First, Foremost, and Forever?I thought not. Hogs are it!anyway, My pop passed away and left me some money. I was right out of “lifestyles of the rich and famous”, 6 cars, 5 motorcycles, boats, swimmin pool, party all night, sleep all day kinda shit! Needless to say money did’nt stay long(but I had a good time!)and I started thinkin’ about somewhere new to live(taxes at this time, in the early 2000’s, taxes in my small town, for a postage stamp sized yard, were over $6000 a year! When ya gotta go, ya gotta go! I went!- I googled the lowest tax rates, small police presence, lowest crime rates etc.., and found Calhoun County West(by God)Virginia! Hill Billys, Baptists, a sheriff, country stores(pocket Walmarts), folks carrying GUNS! in plain sight! OOHHH YEAH, this is for ME! Ex-GI, hippie, biker, chef , I should fit in REAL well. I started looking for a place to call home- after being shown some of the worst hovels, accessable only with a four wheel drive vehicle, I came across an old Baptist church, owned(as luck would have it)by an old Club Biker(hey Little Joe, are your ears burnin’?)This Guy was a real character! After I bought his place we often got together for a little mad merriment, Joe was anything but boring. Have been livin in CCWV(Calhoun county West Virginia) now about 5 years, have met many characters, been many places, seen some weird shit! For the most part EVERYONE is cheerful and FRIENDLY here. How can ya stand it? (end part1)
I mean it- i need comments or the duck really is a gonner!
