what ever doesn't kill ya makes ya stronger.

Yeah . Whatever. Says this limping vet.

Good to hear ya dodged a bullet. Even with all my scraps I consider myself lucky.
Seems you are lucky also.

Just scheduled my cataract surgery . Can't get my drivers licence renewed without it.
Still have not done anything with the kawi clutch hub yet either.

Found my abandoned ranch in shambles instead.
Any body living in latino land might know what I mean by reverse prejudice and hate.
Because it took a lot of work to tear up my house and shop like they did.

Even after that. I consider myself lucky. Cuz these biscuits and gravy are tasty.
Hope you get well and strong.
Hope I get my sportster ready for the midwest meet and greet also in time.
So I can forget life's problems.

Good luck bro.

I'm betting what you pay in fuel would cover my health care costs.

Some are better than others. The one here used to be OK, but it went down hill when they closed some others down and moved a lot more people in here. Now it is a last resort for me.
