Of course he can.

On another note: My wife found the seat for the for the drum set. We had the seat stand, but didn't find the padded seat that sits on it until a few days after your buddy picked up the set. Should you choose to accompany Roger's friend to the RTE, I can bring it with me. You'll need some bungee cords to strap it on to your bike.

Lemme know, and we'll go from there.

you guys do this on a Friday, we'd have to play hookie

A weekend RTE, local or otherwise, would probably draw from near and far, esp. in the winter, judging by the RTEs bwalsh organized at one point (e.g., a wet March Woodstock VA RTE drew from as far as MD and perhaps beyond with a headcount of over 30 FFs). --> Post Up, They Will Come!

Sorry that I forgot to wish you a happy birthday Brian, but it looks like the Steelers gave you a nice present last night anyways!

Thanks Jeff but if barely beating the worst time in football in front of the home crowd and now likely having to face the Ravens without our starting qb is my gift from them, I would have rather had a jersey or something.

Maybe that will but a smile on your face. Oddball always had a way of looking to the positive. I'd say, at least they didn't lose to the worst team in football, in front of a home crowd!

Inmate down

Received this from an inmate this morning. I'm not going to reveal his name; he can do so later should he choose:

"Got a flat on the two wheeler today. Unfortunately I was doing 70mph on 95. I was unable to stop before the death wobble struck. Went down hard on the shoulder. Damage on bike TBD. Destroyed my helmet and ripped up my pants and coat. Fortunately I was ATGATT. In ER now for what might be a broken big toe. Sum bitch!"

Haven't heard anything back further, but hope and pray they find the toe was his only injury.

Whoever it is, they already made it past the biggest hurdle which was not getting run over on 95. Here is to hoping for no broken bones and just soreness. The bike, helmet and gear are not important at this point.

Also, for whoever it is, I''m off work starting this Friday for the next week if you need help trying to get things sorted.

Yea, what he said. ^^^

Anything this person needs, I'll be happy to pitch in and help. Glad the gear worked.

Yikes! A flat at speed on I-95. That's just about everybody's worst nightmare, isn't it?
Hope the rider gets it all together soon.

BTW, what is this, slacker week? I'm off till Monday.

Guy-
I know everyone is in the same boat as I am about offering up time & efforts to help in anyway needed. Please keep us upto date on any needs to get this inmate back on two wheels as soon as possible.

Specially with the holidays coming I'm sure any of us will do what we can to help in anyway needed.
