    Before I forget. Ask CJ to take you to (or tell you where is) the giant new Hindu temple complex he took Melissa and I to. It looks like something that would hve been built a zillion years ago but it wasn't even done yet when we went. It was really cool watching the stone masons work.

    Ahh, so much to see, I wouldn't know where to start. Man I love India.

    Spent the better part of 2 days absolutely unproductive, pissing off clients left and right, in order to power through this RR from page 1.

    What an awesome read. Looking forward to more Radioman adventures from India.

    Happy Birthday Mark!

    I like "you are only as old as you feel", but having turned 50 last October, I definitely find my body can't quite keep up with the 14 year old who thinks he's running the show!

    Those pictures of the kids might be the best present you could ask for when you turn 50.:clap

    I've found that even at 28, more joints are popping and creaking than 10 years ago. By the time I turn 38 I'll need to invest in glucosamine by the pallet. :loll


    Happy (belated) Birthday Mark! Vaya con Dios.

    Hi Mark!

    Back from my 2.5 month ride down south and getting caught up on your ride. I really identify with what you wrote here! :cry We do things many others only dream of and they think we are so lucky, but they don't realize, while we do a lot of things that bring us joy, it is all under the veil of the loss we suffered. :cry I am often told that I am "lucky" and all I can say is that I don't feel "lucky", I hope to some day have that feeling again, but now, I am simply doing the best I can with the circumstances I have. Good luck my friend, I will be following along! :deal

    :wave Donnie My heart goes out to you. Know how much it hurts and how you miss Sheryl, but you have the courage to carry on! Your grieving will continue but life will unfold for you in new ways!!

    Keep on riding and following along!
