2 Fabulous Ladies!

Here's 1 of my favorite shots of 2 Fabulous Ladies...
Linda and Flo, my harley....
Linda has gone to Arkansas this weekend to
attend the funeral of her Uncle Winfield! Winfield
had a fine life! He had a MARVELOUS wife, Betty
and enjoyed a grand sense of humor! His family
consumed his life and he wouldn't have had it
any other way! My heart goes out to Betty, Jimmy
and Caroline...

It Takes Courage

It Takes Courage
Author Unknown

It takes strength to be firm,
It takes courage to be gentle.

It takes strength to conquer,
It takes courage to surrender.

It takes strength to be certain,
It takes courage to have doubt.

It takes strength to fit in,
It takes courage to stand out.

It takes strength to feel a friend's pain,
It takes courage to feel your own pain.

It takes strength to endure abuse,
It takes courage to stop it.

It takes strength to stand alone,
It takes courage to lean on another.

It takes strength to love,
It takes courage to be loved.

It takes strength to survive,
It takes courage to live.

Another great birthday!

Charlie flew in on Thursday - the Captain and
Brook camped out in his old bedroom and Courtney
met us all Sunday for a birthday breakfast at
the Tahitian Inn! Yup, I turned 58! Below is
my incredible family! One more time I was
reminded just what a fortunate guy I am! Oh
yeah - a little over a month ago I mentioned
some big news coming.......

April 2008!!!!!!!

I miss you my friend!

I woke this morning thinking of Jake.....
It's been over 2 months since he has
been gone and it still hurts! Once again,
I realize I am the lucky one - to have
had his love and devotion for over 12
years...I haven't had the words to
express myself about Jake - these words
touch on how I feel....

This Flame burns bright in honor of you
My faithful friend, I will always miss you.
Through the years you were always there,
To make me smile and dry my tears.
And you maybe gone, but your spirit remains
To forever light my way, bring warmth to my heart.

Memory never dies.....Memory never fades.
