Congratulations Flame.
May you share a long and happy life.

I guess I should be patient since you are probably honeymooning and not logging into the forum, but when you're back we need a pic or two...

Morning! I'm back to the grind after the Honeymoon grinding! Randy, my prayers are with you, brother. 30 years must feel like a short time right now. How are you doing with the fires out there?

I'm erratic and don't track very well yet, working to adapt, still broken.
The fires...sigh
I was in Napa County this last weekend to discuss wildfire mitigation for a State Park near St. Helena. They got grazed by the Tubbs Fire last year and wanted evaluations. I told them without burning the entire Park in a controlled fashion, it will burn in an uncontrolled fashion, there just aren't any other options.
Farkin smoke, this is our 5th straight year of smoke and ash, it gets tiresome.

We've been seeing footage of the various fires on our news.... even our local newscaster commented on the repetitive nature of the fires.

Fred, so happy for you and the lovely Shannon, and when it comes to grinding it comes with a lifetime warranty- can’t wear it out- so may as well use it.

Randy, was out your way a couple months ago, astonished at the devastation we rode through and around on the C.O.B.B. Run. News video doesn’t begin to do it justice.

Harry, your weather beats hell out of ours. Temps in the 20’s, several inches of snow, followed by rain, then several more inches of snow. Not even officially into winter yet but with the drab gray skies I’m longing for some blue sky and glorious sunshine! To be able to ride would help my attitude but promised myself I’d be a good patient and give this shoulder a proper chance to heal. Have entered into the criminal charge stage against my baby sister, going on four years now, and really anxious to close my Mother’s estate. Would be nice to get my life back, sigh.

We lucked out on the heavy smoke/ash, the Camp Fire vomit went SW, away from us.
We have yet another bright and hazy day, The Hoyden will get road time, been riding nearly every day. I don't go far, I don't go fast, but I go.
