  1. Upcoming Tattoos

    We stayed across the river in Algiers, took the ferry across, drawback is last run not very late. Stayed at Federal City Inn and Suites on an old Navy base. Once in NOLA you can walk or take street car (get an all-day pass cheap). Honestly, NOLA was disappointing for us, but we are old farts. Traffic in NOLA was awful. Glad we left the bike in Algiers.

    This is great, GN! Now, I'll just pray that the rad does its job.
  3. New tattoo crooked? Help!

    Voice of experience here, DON'T go to the same artist! And Yes, it can be fixed - don't panic.
  4. Random Cell Phone pics

    We are on a short vaca to Kennedy Space Center to tour and see a launch (not Falcon Heavy - it will be a madhouse for that!) This was taken in the Apollo/Saturn V center. Lots of great exhibits and things to do @ KSC! We have spent three days there so far, and will be there tomorrow for a Falcon 9 launch.

    Apollo 14.

    Wife and I decided to try and knock an item off the bucket list, so we are in Titusville, Florida. Toured the Kennedy Space Center (three days worth), and hope to see a Falcon 9 go up on Tuesday. Won't stick around for Falcon Heavy (it's getting nuts around here already for that). Did get to see Falcon Heavy do its Static Hot Fire Test this week: (that was pretty awesome)

    It wasn't as awesome as it could have been, but it sure could have gone shitty quick. Some of us from the Knoxville area have a New Year's tradition of riding (mainly GoldWings) to Dupont Lodge at Cumberland Falls State Park for lunch. Today was forecast high in the low 20s, but no precipitation was mentioned. We all have heated gear, so Charlie and I met at 9:30 for the ~80 mile ride from our meeting point. We took 2-lane backroads as they are more "interesting". About 40 miles in it was getting bad as there was a constant light snow shower that blew around on the roads, and I was eventually searching out tire tracks until we reached another interstate crossing in Jellico, TN. We got on the slab to our exit for the park road, where it was obvious (spinning and fishtailing is NO FUN on a 900 pound bike!) that we'd have to turn back. All in all, I had good ride with my friend, and got to see my temperature display "- -", which is Honda's way of saying "you fool! It's below 14 F!". And also learned new disrespect for the weather guessers as they didn't even mention any snow on the morning news. But we both got home safe, which is pretty awesome considering the possibilities.

    And of course, cup holders! Looks like fun and a MUCH nicer way to clear the drives. Sent from my Le Pan TC802A using Tapatalk

    Well, @Gingerninja, what's the word? Good, I hope! I have a friend that had a tumor wrapped around her auditory nerves and partially on the optic nerve on that side. She had lost all hearing in that ear already. She had surgery @ Vanderbilt, had to go in through her face and eye socket. Low prognosis for survival, success at removing all of the tumor, eyesight on that side, facial appearance, personality, etc. When they got in the tumor had turned to a jelly that they were able to suction out. This was a couple decades ago. I just saw her last year (on my way to a tattoo convention!) and she has about 20% hearing loss in that ear, no scars or appearance change, good sight in both eyes, and a personality just as warped as when I first met her in Sunday School in 1979. I know this is not the most popular statement for this forum, but she had many faithful praying for her. I'll keep you in my prayers.
  14. Tattoo Donts..... that you did

    A line (what landlubbers would call a rope) that was supposed to look realistic that he made look like a 3 year-old's cartoon. On the top of my right forearm. His "correction" just made it worse. I'm finally happy with it, after four laser treatments and two correction sessions with a great artist that cared about the satisfaction of the customer. Sent from my Le Pan TC802A using Tapatalk
