New Grand-daughter

As I write this my Grand-daughter is making her way into our lives. After 36 hours of labor, the Doctor has scheduled a "C" section for my daughter in law. Yes... A very happy new year for the MB4 household. Her name is Morgen, and she will be as spoiled as we make her, with tons of love, and a Hell of allot of motorcycle riding. Watch out boys!!!

A very happy new years to all of the friends that I, and the misses have made since owning the magical KLR...

Yo! To the brothers.

RIP Darin, Ben, Carey

Congrats Mark:

If I had known how wonderful grand kids were I would have skipped the kids and went straight to grand kids.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

Nice man! You're gonna love the trike. And it will be the bad-assest tricycle at the playground.

I gotta say this even though it is only tangentially related. I let my daughter hold my thumbs when she is on my lap and we play "clutch hand" and "throttle hand". Today my Dad was holding her and she had his thumbs and I said, "Where's your clutch hand, Frankie?" She opened and closed her fingers on her left hand twice...just like she was working the clutch. Four months! Hot damn.

Congrats Mark!!
My fiance wasn't too happy a couple years ago when her oldest son made her a grandmother at 39 years old, but she sure loves that grandchild..

I refuse to be called "Grandpa", though...

Now THIS is what a biker looks like.

This is my daughter Frankie. Four months old and has WAY more hair than Dad.

...you'll see my ugly mug soon enough Mark.
