DonO is alive!!!

Recommended Posts

Just letting everyone know I'm alive. I have pics to get developed and will get Squidward to post when I get home power back.

I had to pay my respects to my trees over the last couple of days, they saved my house/shed and my neighboors house, by taking the full force of the wind (I've lost about half of my "big" oaks and maples, plus many Jr. ones also). And yes I'm a tree hugger!! I've raised these trees, some from acorns and maple seeds. My 400' feet of board on board fence is gone (actually many 6' and 12' panels acutally beat the crap out of my screen room and soffit). I actually saw a 12' panel, with 4x4's on each end go flying out over the street then swing back and crash into one of my big oaks like a frisbie!!

Haven't had power in a week now and very little to eat. Cold showers are really sucking for the last three days and you can't get a hotel room!!!

My work (that's where I'm at today,Thursday) building roof got trashed "really bad" but our vaults and equipment are operational so that's a somewhat plus.

Bike is still at the shop and they have no power either, life sucks right now.

Don :thumbsup:

Glad to hear your alright Don. By the way in case you didnt get to find out yet the FTR Scramble for this weekend has been postponed to the date of the Second race, so hopefully you can make it to that one since it looks like you wouldnt have made it this weekend.

ThanX to everyone.

West, if I can get my bike out of the friggin' shop I'd be ready to go :thumbsup: but they got no power either so I'm royally screwed for now (Sorry, Dennis but I just don't look good in "blue" and I gots to look pretty being first at the finsih line :devil:, thanks for the offer though).

Between all the friggin "Mildew"/"Mold" smell at work here and not being on my bike in 2 weeks I'm really having withdrawls. I don't even have any cold beer at home (its a nice 88 Degrees at night sleeping (ah, love that "sweatty feelin", wasn't that a song "you've got, that sweatty feelin' whoa that sweatty feelin'" ... :awww::lol:
