That wouldn't be the same friend that owns an unwashed Conni and can't tell when 3 of his riding partners actually pull off an exit to the designated stop location- would it? I knew he was Dangerous Dan when I first laid eyes on him.

No, this would be the guy with the brand new Ultra that falls over when negotiating turns of greater than 90 degrees.

Great News! I got the results of my PETscan back on Tuesday. No cancer has traveled beyond the original site. I'm all clear! I cried like a school girl.

The Geezer Glide is fresh from its 20k service with new front brakes, new battery (I still had the original!) and fancy new chrome fork lowers and housings. It will be sunny and 75 all weekend so what do you suppose I'll be doing?

Buz,

Congratulations, Ol' Hoss!

Don't bother buying lottery tickets for a while...

Say goodbye to every mole on your body. After the second or third follow-up visit, they'll all be gone.

Now, go forth and live!

Default Lawyer Replies to Inane Lawyer Post!

I just realized! I'm a lawyer. I should title all my posts with "Lawyer Says," "Lawyer Offers," "Lawyer Posits," "Lawyer Blah blah blah . . . "

What a revelation! I'm gonna be even more insufferable than I already am.

It couldn't hurt, now that you mention it. I'll read it first...never too old to trick a dog teacher.
