    I hear that. We lost our German Shepherd (Spike) on 11-11-2015 and I am sure he will be waiting for us. But even though we swore we would never get another dog, we did. :-) He sure is feisty! But he too will be our baby till the time comes. Let me introduce you to Voltage. His middle name is "Spike". :-)

    Nope. Hopefully for Polar Bear.

    Well ya see first off Ol Blue is now Ol Purple. Secondly some random dipwad was attempting a valve adjustment right before Hurricane Matthew rolled through and apparently one of the steps is to oil the bucket so the shim sticks. I didn't, it slipped down and when I rotated the engine over it galled the head and pushed some aluminym down sticking the valve open. So I pulled the head and since it was off and "The motorcycle formerly known as Ol Blue" used 1.5 qts of dino last Turkey Trot I decided to do the 685 while in there. So with all of that said, everything seems to be in fine working order. Doing break in riding now.

    i lost my 13 year old cocker to dementia and old age.. Blind the last 5 years of his life but when i tried to sneak out of the house with out him.. not one piece of furniture or walls would be hit! B Line to the door! Amazing ears and nose.
    We'd joke about the boxer and cocker.. Boxer would lead the thief to the jewels and the Cocker would lick the fingerprints off!
    Love those dogs like they're family! You know they had a great life when your phone has more pictures of them then of your spouses or gf's..

    Davebert....he looks like a "bert" to me. He is prettier than my ex wife too.

    CH....we could use some skeeter control. Ya know with all that Zeeka stuff running around. Maybe you could remove the rings for the Trot this year or something :rofl.

    Must be getting close....I am starting to feel pretty foolish.

    Davebert....how is Agnes doing?

    Skeeters? With lows in the 50's I'm hoping that they won't be an issue but I'll have the thermacell on standby just in case... :uhoh

    I was going to name him "dogbert" but he already exists in the Dilbert comic strip. :D Agnes is still on the treadmill but she has lost a bunch of weight. She will be ready for the countdown soon.

    Couldn't have helped with skeeters. It never did a 2 stroke impersonation. But it could out drink Tony...
