  1. I know someone that's raffling off a custom Harley for a customer of his that passed away. The customer died of cancer before he ever got a chance to ride the bike. All the money goes to the family and build costs. The problem is he's not sure if they are going to meet his goal and they have been at it for a while. Tickets are $50 apiece...I bought 2 and I might buy 2 more. It was at my show last June and he sold a bunch of tickets there. I was talking to him this week and he says the bike is going to go at an event he's holding on the 28th no matter what! Good luck with whatever you decide.
  2. Being in a hurry is not worth your life! One bad decision changes everything!
  3. My mother in law was not supportive at all! In fact she went nuts!! He just wanted to see if there was anything he needed to know about..like health issues, things like that. She took it as he wanted a new family! She would not tell him anything so he went to her sister who set up the adoption in the first place, and she told him where to start. My mother in law was so furious with her sister for telling him something he needed to know...she stopped talking to her. Unfortunately...the sister passed away this year and now my mother in law is racked with guilt because she never patched things up with her. It was never a big deal to any of us, but it wrecked his relationship with is mom, all because she was being selfish and insecure. Sounds like you got the better life for sure. I know we love our little brother and he love us!
  4. So cool you found your family. My wife's youngest brother was adopted when he was a day old. My mother in law wanted another child and my father in law said ok...basically he would do anything to shut her up! His mother was a young girl from their church and she was happy to give him up. A while back he decided to try and find his bio family. He found his dad and a couple siblings but not his mom. He's 30 years younger than me and a good man with a great family. He says he's not really in touch with the bio family. In his words...he dodged a bullet and he has us!
  5. <----------She was 53 when this taken! She's going to be 56 next week! Just sayin...
  6. My mom and Dad have decided to sell the house in Vegas and move back to Southern California. My dad just turned 86 and my mom is 82 and they just can't handle the house anymore. It's up there but it's pretty amazing! I'm going to miss going to Vegas and having a room waiting for me. But having my parents 4 blocks away from me is well worth it. Take a look... http://www.lasvegashomesinsummerlin.com/listings/details/10710-rancho-destino-road-las-vegas-nv/2129771/7939239/?fbclid=IwAR1U5-R5J8CGyFYtccEg0016YwcsyAHKwp2i9rGsvMH96d8EUCUrhZi9Ha0

    Ww Rebuild

    LOL! The guy that was building the BBQ flaked out so we came up with something of our own design. It actually worked really well.
  8. Here is the thread I did dbart. In hind sight I think I would have let it go and buy a motor home. But we only had it a short time and I was not going to let someone take it away from me! It was a long and painful journey, but in the end we had something WW never built and was one of a kind! The guy i sold it to uses it to haul his 2 race RZR's to the races and it's his base of operations. It really was pretty amazing when it was done!
  9. This is what my youngest daughter wrote on her FB page: "One of the worst feelings in the world is waking up from a nap at 16 and hearing that your parents were in an accident and no one knows if they're okay. These people tried to take my parents from me but thankfully took themselves instead. Dont be cheap or stupid, just uber or lyft. You could be the reason a little girl loses her parents." People are dying daily just from other being stupid or they just don't care!
  10. Thanks Crusty! That's exactly how I feel! My life changed in a lot of ways that day. I felt as if we were left here to do more and better things with the time that we have! I don't want to get on a soapbox or anything, but there is really no excuse to drive impaired or text whale driving in this day and age! I feel the same way about people on motorcycles too!
  11. It's that time of year again. When I give my yearly PSA about the dangers of drinking and driving. And now I'm going to throw in texting and driving too! On this date in 2008, my wife and I were coming home from having our Weekend Warrior trailer modified so we could put our sand car in it. We were hit head on by a drunk driver in Hemet CA...he was going 70 mph and we were doing about 40. We survived and unfortunately the driver and his passenger did not. This was at 4 in the afternoon! Some of you might remember my rebuild thread on the trailer a few years back. Please by all means go out and have a good time...then let a sober person drive or Uber now days!! And that text can wait!! Or just pull over to answer it. Your life or someone else's depends on it!!
  12. Met her at SEMA once...just a sweet person! Died doing what she loved! RIP!
  13. What a great project for you and your dad! And a great year for the car...same year i was born...LOL!! I'm getting ready to start my 240Z project with my son.
  14. I'm not trying to give you hell...but... (you know something awful is going to be said) From here going forward... ( really hate that one) FINE! ( The dreaded "F" word!! you know your life is about to change...and not for the better)
  15. My Father in law works for a moving company and says they have never been so busy moving people out of California. Moving people in...not so much!
