  1. We have a locker with several 22, a 410, a 12 gauge, and a 30-06. All long guns. Although a firm 2nd amendment supporter, I don't carry. I appreciate those that do. I was never any good with a hand gun and don't trust my own judgement in a situation where one might be useful. My tattoo artist carries, and I told her on first visit that it was appreciated and helped customers feel safer (unless they are snowflakes worried about the presence of firearms). If ever called on for national defense, I feel the old Springfield (being a retired military weapon) is best suited.
  2. Just a portion of the awesome >35 year-old bikes on display yesterday. I believe the oldest was a 1929 Henderson.
  3. I love vintage bikes, and this weekend (May 13&14) a friend is hosting his second Possum Gathering in Sevierville, TN. I will be helping out on 12, 13, &14 and showing one of my bikes. Had a large time with beautiful bikes and great folks last year. If you are in the area, check it out!
  4. A friend is the motorcycle advocate for Garza Law. They have purchased Thunder Roads TN/KY and she wanted the inaugural issue to display the diversity of riders and rides. Asked me to have my '78 cafe-styled GoldWing rescue as one of their cover bikes. Wednesday evening was their release party and a great time. If you are in TN/KY, stop off at a motorcycle-related business and check out a copy. It is also online at: https://issuu.com/thunderroads8/docs/thunder_roads_tn_ky_web_pdf?fbclid=IwAR3n1tvTaAUbeAX-lslNeYY1eyUaPNKLVB1QsznTPK8jSr_Z18pLVQsJlik
  5. Love all of this! In particular, the balance of color to grey. It makes them both pop.
  6. Ouch! Hope that by now the healing is complete!
  7. So, if you are in the area (or want to travel) we are having our 3rd bike show at our church. Fun, food, great bikes, crafts. We are trying to get kids 12 & under to decorate their bikes and have fun with them. For the motorcycles, the Time Warp Vintage Motorcycle Club has made this a club event for this year. They have some pretty great machines!
  8. I agree no pain killers. I only remember a little burning sensation in the "tender white meat" inside my upper arm. And, it was brief. Don't focus on the pain. Focus on the art that you receive.
  9. One arm has three ~5" diameter and three smaller all tied together (similar theme) with vines on the upper arm/shoulder while the other has three totally unrelated pieces shoulder to wrist. I love them all.
  10. Or, post an update when I'm scrolling through five years later? We were on our third visit to the Saturn 5 center (sooooo much to see), and I was looking at a replica lunar buggy display when the building started shaking. Ran out onto the lawn on the East side in time to catch the plume from a ~4 second blast from Falcon Heavy's 27 Merlin engines test firing! A few days later we returned to the Saturn 5 center to watch a Falcon 9 send a satellite up. Now, I may need a trip to South Texas.
  11. Thanks folks. He was such a sweet pup and left us with great memories of him that will live on.
  12. My heart is broken today. Rocky, our daughter's 15 year old American cross-breed, got to the point he could not eat or drink. We all took him to the vet for that final trip. Comforting her and aching myself.
  13. Sorry, LST and Tapatalk seem to be having a spat.
