    Is there a problem getting them posted?
    You can send them to me & I’ll post them.

    HayDuchessLives & I paid a visit to TR late Tuesday afternoon. TR seemed a little antsy & was rolling around a lot. Way more than I have seen him do since he has been stuck in that damn chair. He popped a couple wheelies in the garage again. [​IMG]
    I know that all this is very, very frustrating for him. I think it makes him a little cantankerous but I sure can’t blame him. Who wouldn’t be! [​IMG]

    Here is HDL pretending to be nice to TR. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    And TR pretending to like it. [​IMG]

    Come on, you know I’m kiddin’. :smooch

    Cathy does her best to keep the “No Rules Gruver” in line. Full time job! [​IMG]

    TR’s son, Jim emailed me a ton of pix from when TR was going on the sidecar ride last Friday.
    Here’s just one.

    [​IMG]

    There were a lot of pix so I’ll just give you a link & you can see all that I received. I have no idea what order these were taken in, I just put them in in the order received. Tried to sort them but they seem all mixed up to me. There are 22 pix on two pages. You can just select ‘view all’ near the top & see all the pix on one page.

    I think Captain Chaos will have more pix later.

    Sea ya’all later...... :gerg

    Good point. Tractor probably has a slammed immune response. Might be a really REALLY good idea to keep cooties at bay.

    Got nothin’ good. :(:
    Last two times I was there it was around 6 pm or a bit earlier, maybe 5, & Harry was sleeping both times. I have been going by every couple of days or so for a bit but haven’t been there for maybe 4 days. I haven’t been able to get there earlier as of late.
    So if anyone wants to go by try to get there earlier.
    And soon.

    I slid by at about 4:45p and he was up and about. Barb had been by sometime recently, too.

    He was scooting around in the wheelchair and enjoying some McDonalds burger action. Seems to be in pretty good spirits and I'd recommend that you swing by if you've been on the fence. He could probably use a little fresh company right about... now.

    BTW, Dapman... the graphics on the Porsche look perfect.

    Not sure who I need to ask permission of but would whoever took that pic of him on the boardwalk in shorts mind if I had that blown up to poster size for his wall?

    Perfect. Thanks, Troy, and it's my favorite for sure. That and the softball shot.

    I'd say that there's probably some stuff on the RH side of the pic that could stand to be hacked out of the frame. Anybody w/ Photochop skills want to take a crack at it? I can do an IrfanView trim but am not well known for my uh, artistic skill.

    Unfortunately (??) Tom S still doesn't have photochopping software. I can crop the photo but it won't be until late tonight after I get home unless.... Legion, I'll send you a PM.

    Actually, although I miss seeing his creative genius at work, I think I'm kind of glad Tom S doesn't have photochopping software as my DR has stayed intact, i.e. it hasn't gotten chewed up by a T-Rex and hungry crows, stomped on by KawiDurga, and stomped on and cussed at by myself. :lol3
