Sorry Chris.

Just realize you've done the right thing for her. Try not to look for her too much in the coming days. You will. I still look for my two sometimes.

Dogs are truly man's best friends. I hate having to say goodbye to them. Hug your family and think how much she loved you and how happy she was always to see you.

If you don't want to take it to King William you can bring it to Harrisonburg.

A big thanks to everyone who gave me input and ideas regarding the rear wheel threads on my sons Z50. My local Firestone shop on Rt 10 installed them, including the cost of Helicoils, for $46. (Ultimate Cycles quoted me an hour labor ($80) PLUS the cost of the Helicoils!).
Now I just need to find him a place to ride, he's getting tired of the backyard and driveway.

It's a shame you cut that puppy up. That would have made some nice lumber for some decent rustic looking furniture.

I'm exhausted, broke, and haven't been able to ride for a couple of weeks...Thankfully that must mean my daughter's wedding is finally here tomorrow!

My baby girl (the older one on the left, sorry pic of a pic in a frame)


She's finally all grown up, and I wish them both all the love and happiness in the world.
