Just Stuff

its a gorgeous day here.. i wish i had time to ride before work but that isnt happening.. i had too much stuff to do this morning .. oh well.. maybe tomorrow i will ride TO work since i will get home before dark.. i dont like riding home on my road after dark.. too many wild animals that could get in the way .. and that is a risk i am not willing to take..

this summer was kind of a let down on the amount of riding and rallies i was able to attend... seemed like bad timing followed me around all summer. I did make it to Kansas city and that was awesome seeing old friends, making new friends, cementing bonds, and even getting closer to some of the people i am proud to call friends.

next years schedule is happening come hell or high water.. life is too short to put off things that make you happy. its too short to be in relationships of any kind that pull you down or make you feel bad..

i feel i have gotten to a better place now and ready for a new chapter of my life to begin.. i have the races next weekend .. a wedding in plano the weekend after that .. and i even have a date going with me !!! that makes me happy.. then i am hoping to get some more riding in before it becomes too cold to ride here.. yes i am a pussy .. i dont like being cold on my bike

my niece will be moving in with me at the first of the year.. that will be nice to have some company around here and another person in the house.. this place is just too large for me.. i rattle here.. i have alot of plans and a lot of things i want to get accomplished before she moves in.. here is hoping they get done...

i will be starting a school in a couple of weeks that will allow me a better position at work and i am excited about that as well.. i am hoping it goes well .. anyway .. ihave to get ready for work.. and run an errand before i get there so i bid you all a wonderful weekend...!!

This Song

is heart wrenchingly beautiful and sad .. all at the same time.. it brings me to brings up places i sometimes think about but not often.. the memories are too bittersweet for me...

link to the video HERE

lyrics :

1000 times I've seen you standing
Gravity like lunar landing
You make me wanna run till I find you
I shut the world away from here
I drift to you, you're all I hear
As everything we know fades to black

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending

I never thought that I
Had anymore to give
You're pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
But, love remains the same

I find a place where we escape
Take you with me for the space
The city buzz sounds just like a fridge
I walk the streets through 7 bars
I have to find just where you are
The faces seem to blur
They're all the same

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending

I never thought that I
Had anymore to give
You're pushing me so far
Here I am without you

Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
But love remains the same

So much more to say
So much to be done
Don't you trick me out
We shall overcome
It's all left still to play

We - we could have had the sun
Could have been inside
Instead we're over here

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending

Too much time too long defending
You and I are done pretending
I never thought that I
Had anymore to give
You're pushing me so far
Here I am without you

Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
Everything will change

I, oh I,

I wish this could last forever

I, oh I,

As if this could last forever
Love remains the sameLove remains the same

sometimes life throws curveballs and we have to try to understand why and learn how to hit them.. this one i am not so sure i will ever figure out

i went to my annual v-rod rally last week .. i got to see people that i had not seen in a year... due to one circumstance or another from the late spring and thru the summer my plans to attend several rallies were derailed.. but come hail or high water i was going to KC.. and when my bike didnt start on sunday .. well i just threw my crap in the MINI and took off..

it was good seeing all those people .. its like a huge family reunion that happens to have bikes involved... and every year we get to meet new family members that decide to come and hang out with us... and every year all the old pros get to see each other and strengthen the bonds made with every was great to meet new people

taking the MINI happened to be a blessing in disguise as we recieved rain from the tail end of not one but two hurricanes while we were there...i think this worked in a way to make all of us even closer since we could just hang at the pavillion or the party barn.. i heard some conversations saying they had never been to a rally but felt like they were home and among firends.. some one on my forum made the comment that we all were just friends that we had just not met yet.. and i couldnt have put it better myself..

i spent the week cooking and mingling and just being me .. i also got some much needed rest when there were group rides (i didnt have a bike) and things not scheduled during the afternoons.. i would hide out in my cabin and sleep or just relax and knit on my screened in porch with some coffee or tea... people that wanted to see me would stop by and it was nice to have one on one conversations...

now to the bittersweet part...

we all lost a good friend to a freak accident while there (no i will not tell the story but will say it didnt involve his motorcycle).. he was one of the best people i had ever known with a girlfriend who was just as nice as he was .. they were perfect together.. then he was taken from us .. and she was left to pick up the pieces and the rest of us there to help us thru.. i am so glad she has us to lean on .. and saddened at the same time knowing she isnt getting to spend the life they had planned together.. the thing that makes this most tragic to me.. he was going to propose in front of all of his "family" at our closing banquet saturday night..

today was the funeral and it hurt me not to be was in rochester and i couldnt get the details worked out to get there... we had been "friends" for about a year before i ever met him at last years rally .. and i got to meet her too last year.. they were the kind of people that were so in love you could feel it radiate off each other.. i was jealous of that .. and told them so .. i also told them i wished to be so lucky in this heart completely breaks for her.. the family made sure she still recieved her ring.. and they are making sure she gets every thing that i wife would have gotten.. very sweet and caring of them .. incredible people..

my heart has broken over a dozen times this past week .. and i wonder how many more it will before i can get over this .. and i know my pain is nothing in comparison to hers..

the good thing that came of this .. he was an organ donor and with in hours of the harvesting of them he was able to give at least three people that i know of a second chance at life.. and hope there are more being helped.. so at about 6 am sunday morning .. with elton john saying goodbye and a guardian bell ringing he left this world..

live free my friend... say hi to me every now and then if you can ...
