Dizzer Charlie and Ray had both suggested eating some time at an area called "The Hill", know for Italian cuisine. I heartily endorse their endorsements. We ate at a restaurant called Gian-Tony's. Awesome food. I had chicken cannelonni, which was flavourful and artfully prepared. Kathe had the house fettuccine, which was prepared with shrimp and mushrooms. Both were done with a white wine sauce with a touch of marinara added for flavour and colour. The wait staff were attentive without being intrusive and the atmosphere of the place was subdued and peaceful. Well worth the money spent for the meal. I will make another trip to The Hill to sample some of the other eateries scattered about.

Since surgery is in roughly 3 weeks I guess I better get some more saddle time in before I'm grounded by the surgeon. He says recovery will still take app 6 weeks, I told him I looked forward to proving him wrong. In the meantime, I'll live vicariously through ride reports and BS.

I reckon I need to go see when the next brekkie is, and where...

Also, if you want the best sub sandwich you have EVER eaten or will EVER eat try Amighetti's Bakery and Cafe this is absolutely the best you will have anywhere.

Martha and I lived across from the Zoo (yeah I know it's appropriate) for a few years. What a great place to live.
South? heard it was common to hear gun fire in that area someplace so you should have been right at home

he would always say " its viral, you just need rest"

I always wanted to say " jackass, can YOU take 3 days off from life? because I cant, gimme some damn pills"

hahaha

I feel better today, but still got some sniffle in the nose, and such, I really think its allergies, the pollen counts and everything are high. It sucks though, wonderful weather outside, and not feeling 100%

if you and Elvis dont get better soon, maybe we need a Teepee with a smudge fire, and some steam, maybe a medicine man named Doc?
For me it's definitely allergies. I'm taking a cocktail of Zyrtec D, Claritin, and Zantac 150. Apparently, Zantac is not only an acid reducer, but it's got an antihistamine that the other 2 don't have. Go figure.

yep, the zirtec works well for me, but wife hates it when I take it, she says it makes me irritable.

I contend that it is HER that makes me irritable, but who knows.

Morn'n dudes. At the risk of being severely chastised for putting plane pictures on the motorcycle web site I wanted to post a few I ran across during my moving deal. Long story short my first plane was a Mooney 205 which comes stock with a 4 cyl two blade prop and is kind of like driving a corvette as say compared to a Beach Bonanza etc. Anyway I put a six cylinder IO550 in it with 300 hp and a three blade prop. Hocheee Momma. It would cruise at 177 knots. Anyway my oldest Grandson really liked to fly with Grandpa. Here are a few shots of that. The really neat thing about this is that he is now in college at OSU studying Aeronautical Engineering and is going for his first solo flight today. Getting his pilots license as part of his schooling. All very cool in Grandpa's opinion of course. Hope you don't mind my sharing this with you. Have a good one.

Good stuff Mike. That's quite a hop-up to the Mooney. Really brings home the fact that I learned to fly in a '49 Ercoupe.

Great pictures Mike.
I had never known that you could STC that much engine into a Money like yours. What a great plane it must have been.

You do like to go fast don't ya? Bawahahaha

I'm still a still a Comanche guy but Dad had a 69 Exec. for a while and when my neck could stand the bend I would fly it. I loved the mechanical gear.

Jay, I was around 'copes' a lot but never go to fly one. Always did think they were cool.
