    Didn't want to post whore in the other threads for fear it would be in poor taste or detract from the purpose of those threads. Haven't been able to get up to see him due to work, family obiligations, and last minute trip planning, hoping to visit him when I'm back in St. Louis later this week.

    Celebrated 14 year anniversary with my wife today. Went out for nice long ride this morning through House Springs - Eureka - Chesterfield. Wanted to get a few pics from the GoPro but all I could ever get was her head poking over my shoulder. Perfect weather in the morning. Ended our day by making the long-ass trek up to Grafton to do the ziplines and have some dinner at Piasa Winery. Never even close to dragging a knee with her but she enjoys the twisty roads as much as I do.

    Thanks, I am too young to actually retire but too old to have much of a chance at getting a job making the same money. But I hated my job and decided life is too short to be miserable all the time.

    So I am going up Cycle Gear to get a set of speakers for a frs radio to wire into my helmet. I was helped by this younger gent, who seemed much to smart to working in retail, but hey he probably does it for the kicks. Mango helps me find a headset, he noticed that my gloves were showing the age with a split seam, he let me know about the lifetime warranty on the gloves, finds me a new set. Little bit of paperwork, and off on down the road. Too bad the head set uses a usb port instead of a 4 pole 3mm jack, no worries on that though. Awesome Job! Glad we have Case working the counter up there. Internet High Five to you Mango...

    Wow is pretty much all I can say! I can't believe the difference just between yesterday and today. I am sooooooo happy with the progress we've seen in the last few days. Still a very long road ahead but man, what an amazing day. Stephan and Kathy, wish you could have stayed just a little longer. Michelle and Kirk got hooked up via Skype (or Facetime, or whatever it was) and were able to see and talk to each other and tell each other they loved each other. I had a hard time keeping the tears back. Kirk was able to see his new baby daughter with his mom and dad, aunt and sister in the room. Quite an unbelievable day!! Khaled and Michele stopped in and was there when I left. Ran into Galen just getting onto the elevator and I think Tom was stopping back in this evening. Seriously happy!!

    I just wanted to share my experience today. Dave (whatarush) came out this morning and put a windshield in my new (to me) truck. Great fast service, great price, and great finished product. I am very satisfied and would recommend using him for any of your auto glass needs. Thanks again Dave!

    So, this has been happening since about Thanksgiving. Some guys buy Corvettes when they hit their "mid-life crisis", I just buy another motorcycle. Phase 1. Pretty standard accessories. Phase 2. A little more involved. The Daytona and the Street Triple share the same rear subframe. If you happen to find someone who is converting his 2014 Daytona 675R, in Crystal White, into a race bike, they may sell you the tail, seat, and appropriate bolts for a good price. Then, I just have to drill, and tap, 6 new holes, though I got away with 4. And get a seat cowl kit for the passenger seat. Oh, and take off the passenger pegs. As well as mount an R&G tail tidy, with Rizoma Zero LED blinkers. There's more to come. But, this was the major change.

    I was with Kirk til I got kicked out at 9:00. We called Michelle and told her good night and all that mooshy stuff. He was lifting his legs out of his wheel chair to the floor today and lifting them back in. He seems to be showing an improved range of motion from both legs. Yay. More work to be done on the speech/physical therapy side but getting closer every day.

    Thanks to Anthony Dean for donating all his profits ($301) at the track today! I gave it to Amy this afternoon. He's the Bridgestone/Michelin dealer at the track (in addition to a very fast racer). His wife is the one who sung the National Anthem this weekend. Thanks Anthony!!!!!

    To get mushy for a minute, I posted this on my fb wall and I know some of you aren't on there and some of you are included in this. ... So with all the negative things going in right now, I actually have a LOT to be Thankful for this year.... As many of you know, I went through the TOUGHEST time in my life this year... I literally almost died on my motorcycle on April 26th and yet it makes me realize the great things in my life... 1st is my baby, Karen Falbe.. she did more for me that I could never ever explain, and didn't expect anything in return except me to heal and get healthy...I LOVE YOU BABY. .. 2nd our fur-baby Buddy was by my side the whole time once I came home... 3rd my bosses Steve and Sue Nemish... when a lot of jobs would've let someone go if they couldn't work for 6 month, they saved my job for me AND kept my insurance going when they didn't have to.. I love them for that... 4th EVERYONE that donated to Karen and I during the fundraiser that my friends put on for me... it seriously let me focus on healing, when I saw that weight lift off Karens shoulders... I can't explain to you guys what that meant to us.... I'm literally tearing up as I write this.... I LOVE YOU GUYS MORE THAN YOU'LL EVER KNOW... I have some really good friends in my life, and THAT I'M THANKFUL FOR.... I never felt alone going through all that.. EDIT: I don't know how I did this, but I didn't mention my family... THE BEST MOST SUPPORTIVE FAMILY THERE IS!! I love you guys. .. Matt, Josh, Becky, Karen, and William.. and I can't leave out my mother, Debbie, that's not on fb.... sorry, it must've been my TBI! LOL sorry. . I'll stop being mushy now... just please know that I appreciate you all.. and I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!
