Every time we go fishing, I count my blessing that my friend is still here to bust my chops.
Oh yeah when he feels up to it we will be spending a lot of time at the range, he has never said no to going shooting.
Ampaterry - he will not be getting another motorcycle, he is going back to 4 wheels. myself on the other hand I have had 2 motorcycle accidents, 1 just a broken ankle, the other one was pretty bad I ended up needing shoulder surgery, along with other problems. but nothing is going to keep me off of a motorcycle, as soon as I can afford another one I will. The need to ride is in my blood!!
Dad2thebone - you're right it is very hard to find good friends these days. I went to the hospital everyday to make sure he was doing okay and to see if he needed anything, but most of all so he knew he had my support. I know he would do the same for me.
