    True.

    I look at the rubble pile and think of the effort that went in to just what they threw away!:huh


    BTW, these are what I imagine went in those lathes...

    We should go for a ride this weekend. I'll browse through my GPS tracks to see if I can put something together.

    I was thinking he would fit perfect in the topcase with a few blankets and air holes. As for mom I don't think she would have been to happy with the 45 min ride home this soon. :lol3


    I think he would like that :D

    CONGRATS!!!!!!!:clap


    Your life is about to change in ways you can't even imagine. But if/when the going gets tough, hang in there - it's all worth it. The first few weeks can be tough, then it will settle down.

    My mother might argue that some days - the settling down part I mean, I'm sure that she would agree with the part about some days being a little rough :D

    My son was born a little over 23 years ago. life changing event doesn't even come close to describing his impact on my world.

    As all have said, I will agree,

    congrats PH (to you AND your wife). May the worst days in your future be better than the best days in your past :deal

    Congrats Pilothouse :clap:clap

    I know that helping to raise my 2 sons was the toughest most rewarding thing I have ever done. I would not trade a minute of it, good, bad and everything in the middle. Family is what defines us..

    I wish you all a happy and healthy future..

    Hmmm so when he grows up he will have this strange fear of getting locked in a box everytime he hears a motorcycle... Yeah probably better stick with the car fo this trip.

    Thanks guys. He has a few mannerisms already that could be attributed to me. Guess it is a good thing that mom has had some practice dealing with me so she is prepared.:deal
