drawing a plank

What to write about! I could talk about our Governors race, but that bores the hell out of me. Seems more and more I will be voting against someone instead of for someone. Basically ALL our choices suck and we need to get rid of all 545 and start over. Just saying!! I could talk about the rally is weekend, but I screwed up on the dates and the rally is next weekend and I have to work this weekend. I have a special project at work this weekend if I do a good job I will save our company a few thousand $$. Not a lot but every little bit helps and brownie points for me! I could talk about the economy, but I don’t know what more I could add to all the talks.

As of right now my family is good, my job is good (although I’m not getting any bonuses), my wife’s job is good, my bike is running good, kids are getting good grades in school (first time in awhile), my leg is getting better all the time, and the coffee I just made taste great!

Hope you have a good day and I will try and figure out something to talk about.
Peace,

Weekend summery

This weekend didn’t go as planned. Went to the b-day party on sat, and then went for a ride that lasted for couple hours. I was able to meet up with a friend that had been riding all day. Rode with him and his wife for awhile then we headed home.


That night we had dinner with my parents at Olive Garden, it was good. And to think I didn’t use to like Italian food! Had a 45min wait to get in, guess the economy has slowed down? We used to wait an hour or more. My leg got a little tiered and sore from standing and holding Brooke, but that’s to be expected (from my broken leg/knee). I have almost no limp now so that’s good.


Sunday took the kids to the park got a lot good pictures.

Photo Shoot

If the weather is nice this weekend, I will be taking my daughter and a couple of her friends on a photo shoot. My daughter has two friends that love to go out and take pictures and now she is developing this interest as well. Guess she comes by it honestly. I will be picking up an older camera to test and see if she wants it. I think this weekend I will take them downtown to see what they can come up with. If all goes well I will have plenty of pictures to post.

Sunday time permitting I will get back in the saddle and go for a ride. I need to get back on the open road as it has been be too long. I broke my left leg in November then 2 weeks later I fell down the stairs and broke both my wrist. I have ridden a few times since then, mostly just shorts rides. So I am ready and very anxious to get back to it. I will let you know how it goes!

E-mail

This is an e-mail i sent to my wife after talking to my daughter on the phone when she got home from school. The precursor to this is she had a big time melt down the day before and lost cell phone privileges. Now she has lost privileges before but never has been this nice and sweet in all her thirteen yrs. She usually will just wait it out or argue.
The e-mail is caps only because our computer system at work uses caps and I forget to switch back and forth.


Subject: BRISTIN

I THINK SHE HAS BEEN ALLIEN ABDUCTED. I TALKED TO WHAT SOUNDED LIKE HER, THIS THING WAS WHYYY TOO NICE AND EVEN SAID “I LOVE YOU” FIRST. YOU SEE THEY ALWAYS SAY SOMETHING TO GIVE THEMSELVES AWAY. WHICH COMES TO MY QUESTION. SO SHOULD WE KEEP THE ALLIEN OR TRY AND FIND THE REAL BRISTIN? IT WILL BE A HARD DECISSION TO MAKE BUT,IF WE PRAY HARD WE WILL COME UP WITH THE CORRECT ANSWER TOGETHER. AS OF RIGHT NOW I AM LEANING TOWARD KEEP THE ALLIEN. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK. LOVE YA!!!

Thank you,

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, KEEP THE ALIAN!!!! LOL…..LOVE YOU TOO HONEY….

Sunday Ride

The sun was and starting to warm up a bit. So I decided it was time to get my bike clean again. The last time I rode was a month ago and it was cold and wet out. Needless to say Vivian was very dirty. Bryce came out to play; first he got out his skateboard then his bike. Went up and down the street a few times but mostly just hung around me. He finally asked me if I was going to ride because he wanted too. So with that I stopped cleaning and fired her up. Momma came out with the camera and got a few shots of us before we headed out.



As you can see he was exited to be riding again as was I. It was only a short ride maybe 20mins more or less, but it was all I needed to recharge my battery for the week. It felt great!!!!!

Moved


I have moved and am starting over. Welcome to my little piece of cyber. The reason for the move is really not important, but if you must know. I didn't like my address anymore that’s it nothing more. I figured this was as good a time as any to move. I have been dubbed Cameraman by my riding buddies and wanted the blog to reflect that. This is mostly due to that fact when we go motorcycle rallies I take a LOT of pictures.



I have a Cannon T1I DSLR camera. Some people would classify this as a professional camera, fact is it's not. It can do a lot of the same stuff and takes excellent pictures as a professional camera, but I would say its one step below. So my hopes are to upgrade within the next few years.



If you are interested you can see a lot of my pictures on Flickr. These will mostly consist of family, friends, rides and rallies. Let me warn you some of the rally pictures are of adult nature and you will have to ask for my permission to see them for obvious reasons.



This blog is going to be mostly random stuff. From my past experience I would say the majority will be about family, friends, rides and rallies. Umm I guess just like the pictures I take.



I hope you will enjoy this, love to hear your comments and suggestions.



Thanks,


CamMan

Back up and running

I have been away for way to long. I will get in to that later. Let me just say this, I have healed almost back to normal. Still have a slight limp though, but the Dr. says it should go away.

The tickets and been bought and the rooms have been booked. ROT rally is not until June 10-13, we have already got the ball rolling.If you have never been to the ROT this is the BIGGEST rally Texas has to offer. It should be another great year there. There are tons of stuff to do. Though I have noticed they don’t have very many events scheduled thus far, no matter we don’t go them. We spend most of the day riding in the hill country and then spend the nights at the rally grounds. Should have lots of pictures to share on my Flickr account. If you don’t have a Flickr account the first 100mb are free and uses your Yahoo account login.

When to Republic HD to spend some Christmas cash, gift card that was given to me. They were having a test rides for a free Snuggy. Had to be the worst day possible the weather was 30°. Not one to pass a free ride and stuff, I took out a Street glide. I was really too cold to get in a good test ride so I’ll have to come back and ride it again when it’s a little warmer outside. What I could tell from the short ride all indications is this will be my next bike, but time will tell. Guess it was really slow that day because they gave me two Snuggies. Lol

That’s all I have for now. See you at ROT.
