    All that "I'm suing Cary" crap and *this* is what gets EeeBee to post to AdvRider. :):

    Jon, good to meet you in person. We must do it again sometime.

    Razorback, I'll do my best to keep BPS in business buying shotgun shells and the like.

    All that "I'm suing Cary" crap sounds like work. I get enough at the office, thank you. You don't go home and make stuff to work with Mot products, do you? Oh, now that I think about it.... :evil

    Don't make fun of me, or I'll bribe Sally into pulling out some of your hippie pics astride your chopped Honda CB550!

    That old man was awesome. He told Razor that the first picture was free, then any more after that and he wanted royalties. :)

    I saw some photos and it looked like you took the whole family.

    While it is true that this is the end of the current incarnation of Highland House, I think there's plenty of other spots ready to welcome bikers on Sunday mornings, like the Full Moon just up the road at 41 and 137. And the Broken Oar between Wauconda and Crystal Lake.

    I don't know if this is the end of the restaurant, or just the end of the current owners' involvement in it. They are on prime commercial real estate in a wealthy suburb, so maybe they are just finally selling out. Anyway, it would be worthwhile for everyone to visit and pay their respects to the assholes that have run that place for the last decade.

    I'll be there early.
