    Just got off the phone with Harry, things have taken a downward turn... He's trying to keep his spirits up, but would sure appreciate calls, visits etc. from this group of crusty vagabonds He calls friends... I plan on dropping in on him this weekend, call ahead to make sure he's up to a visit... 345-8396 :freaky

    He was bragging up his new Alaska Leather "Pig" butt pad adorning his wheelchair... says the damn things aren't just for motorcycles anymore... planning on getting royalties from Barb on a whole new line of Medical Prescription Pads :lol3

    You're in our prayers Harry!

    That man's tough and he was expecting things to get tougher.

    I'll see you this weekend, Harry.

    If you know Harry and have been thinking about stopping by to see him please stop putting it off. Give him a holler and slide by soon.

    Who's got that picture of him on the sidewalk in Dawson?

    A conversation you had w/ the boss set me back like 400 clams today so I can eat a shitload of stuff like pureed kale through a straw. Apparently we're going all Gerber here at the pad now. For a hamburgers and thin mints sort of guy with an attraction for anything that'll bring on diabetes this is sounding mighty bad, Fite. Mighty.

    Sorry about that buddy. The General drug me down to Costco to witness the magic of the Vitamix. I actually bought her one for Xmas and she had not used it much. You got by much cheaper than I did. Try $650.
    I figured I could use ours as a wood chipper.
    When you get tired of sucking dinner through a straw... let me know.
    Nothing like a WeeBees double bacon cheese to restore your faith in technology.

    Meanwhile..... enjoy your new regurgitation device.

    What he said. Better do it ASAP. Spent about 5 hours with TR yesterday. Legion came down after a while.

    Lost a lot of pix when my old computer died, so most of the pix I have left of TR have been p-chopped.
    I always liked this one, even without the dog that I snuck in there. :lol3 His old bike, now mine.

    A couple from the TR - Wilma May episodes. :D

    He sends his salutations.
