Dear Rich Just popping in t see if you are still behaving and those bugs are not still with you.Hoping your family is improving(if they can) and you still shhot the breeze when you and see all those roadside poles at one long line.

I have had an exacerbation and am not improving much but thms the breaks I guess.Sometimes its so wearying we may be forgiven for blobbinga bit.Today I am thankful for the sun at last as its been miserable.

Been thinking about you.  Hope you and yours are hanging in there. Just wanted to say Hi and let you know I am still here.   You and your family are in my thoughts. Wishing you good riding as long as possible.

Wow, glad you said you posted an IM, this board doesn't issue im alerts to me what so ever.  Everything is soso here.  I've spent the last month in WV taking care of my parents.  Both should be in a home, or soon anyway. I wish they had bought into a retirement village but such is life. Anyway, I was there for a few weeks changing IV's twice a day and following mom around to make sure she didn't fall.  She needs a first alert ;(

All those nice warm fall days are gone, sigh.

Take care ok?

I saw your IM after I looked for others ;p  Sheesh I wish I could make it all go away and be better but at least we are free of the nic demon.  I think thats' a pretty awesome positive going forward you know.  At least on your side of the hemisphere its getting warmer, this may help your breathing.  

Sometimes all we need is a change of seasons.  I've been away as I noted above.  I spent today rebuilding my starter but its too cold to ride now, or very few days without moisture on the way ;p  Today I just put a bandaid on it, but this winter I may pull it all together and do a proper fix, or buy a new starter.  Prob with modern bikes, they lack the ol' kickstarter which I never needed much in the past.  Jap bikes of course are better built than the HD I currently have.  Pity.  Both still give the same fun and wind factor ;D

Still waiting for pappy's blood tests on the IV's I was giving him.  He developed a rash and they abruptly stopped them just 3 days before the end of the course and he has 3 infections in his foot.  Sucks getting old ;(   I hope the weather brings you better days sweetie.  Always thinking of my favorite gal ;D

I am doing good, coming up on 2 months.  I feel different about my quit this time.  I am not giving up anything, I am getting rid of it. relaxed

Hey Rich, 

     That’s okay, it doesn’t issue alerts to me either. I’m so sorry you and your family are going through that. It’s a shame they don’t provide those first alert type services free to the elderly who cannot afford another monthly payment. They should, imo, but unfortunately my opinion on the matter doesn’t add up to diddly with those who could actually change things. I’m glad you still have both your parents though, that’s a Blessing. I’ve had to give IV’s in the past too. What’s causing the infections in your Dad’s foot? I hope his rash has improved. I also hope his blood test came back good and that your Mom hasn’t had anymore falls. Good luck with the bandaid.I hope it holds up until you can get a new starter, and that you can still find a little good weather here and there to take another quick ride. Sending good thoughts to you and all of your family. It’s good to hear from you. Thanks, you take care too.

They seem to be well as of today. Pappy had a fungus infection that entered his toe bone and having diabetes everything became complicated. The IV's made him allergic so stopped them after 8 days or so.  I really wanted him to keep going, finish them but he wouldn't ;p

I'm waiting for a new leather coat to be delivered today. I found my prob, I had an aftermarket USB charging component shorting out internally and it was sucking up all the amps. Once I removed that the starter kicks into full glory now.  Ah, me and my mechanic abilities ;p  I plan on riding today 5 mins after the package arrives.  I can't believe my coat wouldn't fit.  It put me on an instant diet.  Counting calories is the only thing that works. Going to see how many lbs I can shed before Thanksgiving gets here ;p  Thanks for the update, have a great one.

Hey Rich, 

     I’m sorry to hear that about your Dad. I thought that might be the reason for it though. That’s the same reason I had to give IV’s to my family member. I hope your Dad’s foot heals. 

     I’m glad you found out it was nothing more than the USB. Hope you have fun on your ride today. 

     Same thing happened with me, only with pants ordered online, lol. I lost some weight and got into them but still trying to lose a bit more. I want to get back to what I weighed before joining here. I’m definitely getting closer. Good luck to you too. I get it about the holiday too. I look at that delicious food and my brain says resist but my appetite laughs and says who me?! Ain’t happening. lol. 

     I hope have a great day. Talk to you later.
