No, they live too far down the road. If there were eggs, she'd make me fry'em up 1st! Funny though, I did share my eggs with her this morning!


The grand daughter, aka, the Makattack will be here around 1pm. We have 2 trees and I put only one gift under the one tree and will be telling her Santa was stingy this year. The other tree has nearly 20 packages for her!

You are blessed to be rich with great friends. Money may be great but friends make you a wealthy man.

My wife says "anyone lucky enough to live by the water is lucky enough".

I say anyone lucky enough to have a good group of guys to ride with is even luckier

Christmas this year left my wife and I with 1-month old, twin grandbabies. A girl, Leah, and a boy, Samuel. Born 4 weeks ago today. I got to see them for the first time last Saturday.

Undescribable, humbling and proud feeling to sit and hold one tiny soul in each of my arms. I was in tears.

When they came home from the hospital they slept together in the same bassinet. After a few days their mother tried putting them in separate bassinets but they cried and wouldn't sleep. They're back in the same bed now....back together........unbelievable how much they need each other even at a just a few days old.

Samuel downs his bottle in a few minutes, Leah, being a lady, takes three times as long to drink the same amount. Samual has tiny little sores on his knuckles because he sucks his fingers and he can pee on the wall from his changing table. He's got more pressure than I do.

I could go on.......







Together we have seven grandchildren now.......I'm gettin' old.


Hope you all have a good year in 2011.

I am parting out a 1997 XR650L if you want to waste any cash on it.

Congrats on the new additions to the family Denny! I have a few years before the grandkids happen, but I'm sure it will be fun to see new generations and have the luxury of knowing they're keeping my daughter up all night and not me!

Mine calls me an "accumulator" because I really don't collect anything, I just keep all the stuff even if I'm not using it anymore.

Happy Holidays!

Guess who had the most fun at our house this morning? She tore right in to her presents, and was happy to help others open theirs.

I celebrated Christmas just like Jesus would want me to, drinking beer and riding around in the snow on nearly bald tires....



It doesn't look as spastic as it was...the rear was basically just flailing around behind me, and I conveniently left out the first couple runs where I biffed several times. Fun, but stupid, and I feel 1000x better with a tiny dose of seat time.

Good thing I'm Jewish 'cause...

...my Xmas 2010 sux. It's normally slow, but the wx is tempting me with blue skies only to turn into low overcast. Wife's sick, so I can't even go out and eat Chinese food. Just working and cleaning. Bah humbug.

She knows me, everything is fun and games. She grabbed the package and sprinted to the tree in the front room. We also have another German tradition with her. There is always an ornament that is a green glass pickle. The child that finds the pickle in the tree 1st wins an extra gift. Every time she is here, she re-hides it so she knows where it is and my wife moves it some place else after she leaves. Today her and I raced for the pickle after all the gifts were open. 7 yo against a cripple, she won.


Hope you all got what you wanted. I got a huge surprise. Thinking I was getting something moto related, I got a nice new Olympus Digital Camera!!

As soon as my back is fully healed, I can start riding and clicking so I have the button perfected for the beaches of Puerto Rico in Feb!!
