I finally graduated. May 4, 2008 - MBA. It was a good ride but glad that I am done.
The tales and pictures of the different motorycle trips I go on. I will also talk about the modifications and repairs that I do on my motorcycle.
My eldest brother, TOC (The Old Coot) came over today on his way to a family trip to Moab without motorcycles. I had to show him the latest and greatest stuff that I had been doing to my bike. Here is what he wrote to the rest of the MMMM clan:
I have still yet to come up with a name for my bike. But I have done A TON to it lately. I have put the speedometer on. Not only is this a speedometer, but it has a tachometer, ambient temperature, engine temperature, tripmeter, and odometer. It installed pretty neat and it is even ran off of the motorcycle's battery. Here is a link to it:
It is hard to fathom, hard to comprehend, hard to deal with. But the truth just has to be told. I sold my motorcycle on Saturday. Yes, the motorcycle shop is still open, but unfortunately, there is no motorcycle in the shop to work on. It has been almost 5 months since I have ridden him. The last being the Moab trip in February. With school and work, I have not had time to ride him at all.
I feel that far too often things from our past are not written, videotaped, or photographed and are lost and will be soon forgotten. My dad is an excellent example of how to constantly document his life with a journal. I hope that one day I can have as many volumes of his life with my own version.
Well, grandson number 5 (from Allie's side), and grandson number 17 (from my side) was born at 5:43am this morning. Everyone is doing fine, even when Allie didn't have an epidural. He was 8lbs, 3oz, and 20 inches - one big boy! CP is already eating.
We were woken by a phone call around 12:00 this morning from LDS Hospital, wondering if we still wanted to have our baby. Of course we did. So we quickly gathered all of our stuff and left and called M.A. to come meet us at the hospital. We checked into the hospital, got all connected up, and around 1:45, her water was broken by the resident here.
