    3 years gone I"m back.

    Back from a few years of self imposed exile due to the craziness of life.

    Looking forward to getting back on 2 wheels.

    What led to the exile? Kids? Job? Combination of the two?

    Welcome back.

    You are supposed to bring something to us, though.

    We like lolcats and shrubberies.

    Family and 60 to 70 hr work weeks didn't leave much time for riding. Cut back on the hours a bit and just went to 3rd shift so with the wife at work and my daughter at school there is time to ride again in the mornings. Time to get away from the fat old man lifestyle that I've been in the last couple years.

    As far as bringing something goes I forgot the H&B. I'll have to show how sorry I am while by cutting down the largest tree in the forest with a herring.

    Everybody's on Facebook now, except for us hipsters.

    I gave you some rep, you need to beef up that little green square.

    What was the best thing you did in the past three years, worst thing, funniest thing you saw and the saddest thing you saw?

    The best thing was getting on track to be completely debt free. Should be there by the new year if things go to plan. They never do though so we'll see on that one.

    The worst thing was letting a friendship of 14 years fade away just realizing that the person in question isn't healthy to be around. I'll always be there when the phone rings and help when needed. Spending time with them is not in the plans though.

    Lots of funny things, I'm easily amused though so it's hard to pick just one.

    The saddest is always and will always be any child suffering, There is no fairness in the world and nature is indiscriminate in what happens to whom.
