I sent her a few of your pics and she was very impressed ...
said that you are a natural.

If you knew the $ she made, you would pursue your passion full time and sell jam on the side.
Some of her prints sell in the $2-3000 range. For a freakin picture!
Some of yours are definitely in the same caliber.

Sell a pic, buy a bike.
Sell another, buy a plane ticket to a far away place.
Thanks, That's awfully nice of you to say that....
I would love to roll around and take pictures........
and pit stop everywhere and make jam with the local fruits and such......


Hello, Triumph?............
heck, even BMW.

Hallo, BMW?.....

I digress. I got my coffee and all I can say is I'm not sure there's any coffee in with the milk Which reminded me why I don't go there often. I mean it's not like I'm a coffee snob or anything. I'd just like to get some coffee with my milk once and a while

What a different and refreshing thread. I really thank you for your efforts and frame of mind in this report. Seems that a few of us that have faced death and lived through it have developed a care free mind most times. I'm only up to page 26 and need to leave now to go riding. Alone here, I've laughed at your humor. Keep it up and thanks for taking us along for the ride.
Uhhhhhhh ! We do have a few curves in South Louisiana, just sometimes , very hard to find. ;-)

Several infections that kept pushing my walking date back...
I was in excruciating pain 24 hours a day for the first 6 weeks.
There were things going on in my shoulder/back as well.
OK, I have read a few of your posts and I enjoy the heck out of them. You seem a bit disturbed .... and I can relate to that . I know I am not up to speed so ... I have seen the "before" picture of your ankle ... looks nasty...and I hear you talk about it ... so what happened to your ankle?

Not an ankle but I did have back surgery 7 years ago. Family have suggested I give up the bike at times. If I stay too long on the bike, my back is killing me by the time I step off ... I have about an hour's worth of exercises and stretches I do every night and morning so I can continue to ride. It's well worth it though. Like you said, they will never understand.
