Great Christmas

After years of getting the usual winter sweater I finally decided to give my wife a list with websites, part numbers, sizes, etc... and got my high intensity conversion light, a nice leather jacket and some new over the ankle hiking boats that will be great to ride in. Hope you all had a great Christmas as well.

Now I need some good weather to get out in the garage and start working on the bike!

I have always been like you and didn't really care what I got either ,But like you i scored big with a very nice Leather jacket with armor and out of the blue my Nephew got me an antique pipe stand with Glass and wood in the 40's.Along with the usual stuff .But that all pales in comparison to a report from My brothers Pet Scan that he is cancer free in his lymph nodes and throat and tongue,The only downside is we have to go back Wed. for him to have an MRI to check a spot on his Humerus(thigh bone) and two on his lower back on his spine .These two may be arthritis showing up as inflammation ,we just don't know until later this week.

It takes some of us guys a while to clue in to tell folks what we really want eh, OBNR.
I`m curious to see how those new hiking boats work for riding. LOL

I got Hough`s second book, "More Proficient Motorcycling-Mastering The Ride", and a pair of "Crampbusters" for the grips. Maybe the girls will get me Hough`s other book, "Street Strategies" for my B-day in April.

Denny, it is great to hear your brother is cancer free. I hope the MRI is good news too.

Denny, glad to hear the great news about your brother. Fingers crossed for more good news.

Everthing on my list was motorcycle related, like parts and stuff. I didn't get any of it but I did get a german style helmet. The only problem with that is, the padding is so thick I look a giant mushroom head - or worse. I got a couple harley t-shirts which I obviously can't wear (my sis, bless her heart). I got a badass digital camera though and I love it! I had a blast with the fam and EVERYBODY showed up to my parents place on the 25th so I could catch up with everyone.

New Years rocked too. I was out on a boat on the Delaware at Penns Landing drinkin' beer and watching the fireworks on the river from the river. It was fantastic!

Always love the holidays and get a little bummed when they're over. I like winters here in Florida too as they remind me a little of where I grew up.

My wife got an unexpected bonus this year and was going to buy me an iPad. I'd rather wait for the next gen so she gave me the cash and said to use it for the Vulcan. Having a blast with that!! I have ear shave goodies on the way from Ron and other parts are trickling in here and there. I looked at a sandblast cabinet at Harbor Freight today and will probably go and get one tomorrow. I hope to have another vintage car to work on one day, for now it will help with bike bits. The night before last I received the garage door insulation kits I ordered and installed them. While we can get several nights of hard freeze here it can help. The summer is when I'm expected the greatest difference, I hope.

Got a new iPod Nano under the tree this year, and a new pair of Wranglers. The best gift of all was that my son and daughter-in-law bought us airfare to go to Yuma, AZ to spend Christmas with them and their children. It was a blast spending time with my 3 yr old granddaughter, and getting to know my 3 month old grandson.
