New Seat Belt Law

This law becomes effective JAN 1, 2009, in ALL states.

The National Highway Safety Council has done extensive testing on a newly designed seat belt. Results show that accidents can be reduced by as much as 45% when the belt is properly installed.

Correct installation is illustrated below.......

Please pass on to family and friends.

My Buddy

I was not planning on riding this weekend, because I had a lot of work and projects to do. We had to buy a need dishwasher our old one broke about a two months ago. I had ordered one at the end of December with Kim’s Christmas bonus (there went my new pipes) and it was finally ready for pickup this Saturday. 4 1/2hrs and 3 trips to the store I finally got it installed. Project one done on to my second project. I seems when our dishwasher quit working the water would not drain, well into the drain line, it however fine somewhere else to drain (leak). I have a row of tile that has come up and it needed to be fixed. After purchasing cement and grout and a tile cutter, yes a tile cutter not just any tile cutter mind you but a wet saw. Why you might ask because the only tile out 15 that needed to be replaced because it cracked was the one that has to cut and not just any cut but a corner cut. I have never done any work like this before so...I put if off for the next weekend. This then left me with some embroidery work. Ok before anyone laughs. I own a custom embroidery business and an industrial embroidery machine I don't embroidery by hand. I didn't like the way the design was sewing and decided I was spent for the day. I grabbed my boots and headed for the door and my little buddy said "daddy where are you going?”. I told him for a little ride and with that he took off to grab his gloves (like daddies) and a jacket and we were off. No were to go just going. We rode for about an hour when I come to a stop and said he wanted to go home. I would have like to ride longer but I knew when he stopped putting his arms out to the sides like he was flying time was up and had already started heading home. We made it home safe and sound and I could not have asked for a better ride.

God bless,

It's been awhile

Well a lot has happened since my late post. The most exciting and scary news is that we are having a baby girl. She is due on March 14, 2009 her name will be Brooke Elisabeth. I thought we were done having kids, but apparently God has other plans for us. Kim turns the big 40 tomorrow and miserable pregnant. We are going to the Doc. office on Thursday to talk about inducing early. Kim is ratter small and our last delivery 7yrs ago was hard on her. The Doc had to break the collar bone because his shoulders were stuck and they don't want to have to go through this again.

The Galveston Rally was good even with the low turnout. I have lot of pictures posted at

Got to go for now but I promise to post again real so.
