Chris, your words are more insightful than you likely realize.Just a thought, don't be afraid to explore the darkness a little. It highlights the humor and optimism that much more, making it more effective. It's the valleys that make the peaks so impressive...

I have to ask why do you have 666 as your avatar?Hi,
I'm Gary and I'm a Flight Instructor working in the Philippines. I'm a technophile by heart a geek or nerd as you may say. also I'm a Aeronautical engineer and just waiting for the typhoon season to end so i could finally buy my first brand new bike.
Sorry to hear. Glad your ok. Bike can be fixed, you not so much40 miles into my 1st ride this weekend I hit a fresh tar patch and had to dump her :*(
Need a new headlight and tank - shoulder and ankle took most of the dump. My left arm has a neat asphalt coating on it now. Nothing broken just a bad ankle sprain.
Had to dust off my pants and ride her back home, so I guess it could have been worse.
Few things more humbling than a parade of shame.Barofski, you riding home with a busted headlight made me think of something of my own...
Years ago I was making recumbent tricycles in my garage. I made several kid sized ones and a few adult ones. On the adult trike, I temporarily used plastic 5 spoke bike wheels for the front two wheels. So my daughter and I were riding the neighborhood on our trikes and some 8 year old boys on bikes saw us. They just loved the trikes and one of them said he had a green machine (stretched out big wheel) at home. So we followed them to his house so he could show it off. Next thing you know, they want to race. So we're all lined up on the street next to someone's mailbox an gunna race a green machine, two of my trikes and a bunch of 8 year old boys on bikes to the next mailbox. I of course won and did my victory J-turn, skidding the rear wheel around 180°. Well, I didn't make it but about 90° and the trike flipped up on it's side and cracked one of the plastic front wheels. So now I'm riding home thru the neighborhood with that front wheel going about scooch scooch scooch while being circled by a handful of little boys laughing at me.
Welcome Home Jarrod. Thanks for you many sacrifices. :agree:After 11 months overseas I'm back in the US of A. My chocolate lab whined for 2 days straight if I didn't have direct physical contact with her, pretty funny. Next month I will get to move to Shreveport which will be move 8 in a bit over 11 years. Crazy how life flies by. But all that matters is the house has a 2 car garage. I've got a busy month of getting things ready to move. Hoping my wife's cast comes off in about 2 weeks and she can get into a walking boot but not sure yet. She may still need crutches for a bit after that which would stink for her (and me).
Ready to start a new job at a new base with new challenges to increase my ever growing bald spot. But most of all I'm happy to be home and reconnecting with family, well 90% reconnecting with my dogs and 10% my family.
