QUOTE OF THE WEEK: 8/27/12 AND A BOB UPDATE

"The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking."

I talked to my friend Bob on Saturday night. He is doing okay. He said that he has good days and a few bad days. But, for the most part, they are good days.

He and his wife were able to get out and go ride one of his Harleys for about a half hour. This is one thing that Bob really enjoys. A open road, wind in his face, and no real destination in mind. Just get on it and go. See where it takes you. To alpine forests, with the smell of pine on the air. Or a nice straight stretch of road through the desert with the sun setting in the west. As he motors along, troubles and pain forgotten, just as he keeps on moving down the road.

He has a bucket list of rides that he wants to make.

I'll try to find out what is on that list. He and his wife are coming to Denver next week. They have a wedding to attend. One of his sons is getting married. They will be here on the 30th. The wedding is on the 2nd. He says he is up to it. I can't wait to see him. And as of right now,  he has no idea what we are all doing with him in mind.

Help me to get the word out, please. Let others know of what is happening. Let's keep on ROCKING THIS THING!

  2. 2A Mama, Bob said he was starting to go a bit bonkers not being able to drive, or ride his Harley. The Doctor told him to go ahead, but take it easy, and don't over do it. I can just see him put-puttin on his Harley, with this big silly grin on his face.LOL!

    Kathi and I are both really looking forward to seeing them. Even if it is a short visit. It's one of those things, that I need to see him for myself. And see that he is alright right now. Plus,LOL, to see him minus his hair. He wouldn't let them cut it all off. He left the hair on the back of his head. Kinda like the Chinese you see in the old westerns.
    Thanks for stopping by.
