    Combination awesome and shitty things this weekend. Shitty that we had the funeral for my 1st cousin that has had a huge part in my life. Awesome that so many cousins from all over gathered to say goodbye. Shitty that it's about the only time that I see them - Jones reunions always seem to have one of us horizontal in a box. Awesome that it was in our home town and the church that I grew up in - hadn't seen many of these folks in years, either. Also awesome that my winter motorcycle project - a '79 CB750F rat bike - is finally on the road. Took it out for a short ride yesterday and it ran, handled, braked, etc. great! Now to find a buyer for it so that I can get next winter's project bike.

    I've not noticed that tattoos are that popular there. My hosts were amazed by mine, wanted to know if they would rub off, what the ment, etc. Very accepting, though. Now, they are rural Indians, though fairly well educated. I would think Northern India would have more tattoo shops. Tamil Nadu and Andre Pradesh are beautiful areas. I used to visit friends up near the border between the two. Could see Andre from their roof. Tried to stay out of Madras as much as possible. That's probably where you'd find them. Plenty of good artists there, just don't know how many have adopted the medium.

    Latest tattoo lowdown.....

    Actually, I don't think you'll get one on this forum. ........Now the spots that are left on both of my arms is the inner bicep. I'm scared [emoji846]......... And well you should be. That's the only area that gave me real pain. But, you'll do it and make it through. And it will be worth it.

    Fantastic! Judy and I got together in '80 at our 10th HS reunion. A year later we married, and it is still a great ride! We NEVER miss a HS reunion (our class was only 144 students).

    is tattoo to dark?

    Makes a HUGE difference when you find an artist that cares!

    Shazbot! Took the Hunley out for a Sunday ride. Started blowing headlight fuses, so headed back home after only 20 miles. Coming down our steep, concrete, tree shaded drive, all traction decided to leave and I stuck her in the woods near the bottom. Pulled her out with the winch on the wife's mule and soft straps. Looks like I get to touch up the barbeque paint on the headers and re-polish the right valve cover and belt cover. And, find the short in the headlight circuit. Ok, only a little shitty. But, Knoxville Tattoo Convention is this coming weekend, and I show the Hunley at WingDing the next week!

    Six months of heaven, then they called me to come back on a project 3 days a week. Good money, but looking forward to it ending next month. Finished my bike and rode it to work yesterday!

    Just getting back on with Tapatalk fixed. I LOVE Kewpie dolls! My grandfather had one from Naval service in one of the World Wars (he served in both). I got mine last year to celebrate retirement.
