    Gee whiz...his website was under reconstruction and it turns into he must be dead. I would blame Yahoo.

    That's odd, the address and phone number on his website are shown as his old California ones when I know he's in Kansas.

    I wrote him saying that Rumours is by Fleetwood Mac but Timothy Leary is dead and he just replied...

    No no no he is on the outside looking in.

    Personally I don't do facebook ( my G/F does bless her heart, all good by me, none of my beezwax), I don't have a cell phone ( evil stuff, unless for bizz or emergency, personally don't need one/had one for bizz when needed, but had a boss who wanted me to have when I was with a customer/ I said no cigar...ha!) and I think this "multi media stuff" is reducing people to zombies. I see ( what used to be) normal kids( yeah,age 2-3+) and grownups staring into a black box and not living "life". Look at ( not)people. Put your dang phone way...Jeezz. The fatalities alone from zombies on their cell phone ( Texting? what a curse) while driving should outlaw cell phones in cars period. What's life going to be like in another 10 years? Robots will RULE..HA!! I guess I'm an old fart, but I'm good with it. I've had a blast up to now/no regrets. Merry Xmas ( can we still say that?)

    Again, I emailed him and told him that Timothy Leary is dead and Rumours is a Fleetwood Mac album, and he replied, ":No No No He's on the outside looking in" :)

    I replied I am glad you didn't tell anybody to ride your see saw, to which he replied "Yea".

    How was the vehicle line up at the border? Bet it's busy this time f year. I've driven head on into snowstorms ( into the U.S from Canada at the Minnesota border) to get cool bike parts. That was in my younger days though. Radio Bike looks good. Can you post more pics?

    I just talked to him on the phone on the 23rd. All was well then. Yep in fact he listed stuff yesterday. So; how about a few CABE’rs call and wish him well!

    Glad to hear he's okay,... but

    A few months ago I lost a co-worker. I was working side by side with him the month before. Hes a year younger than me... seemed healthy.. passed in his sleep.

    Stay in touch with your friends... you never know. R.I.P. Terry

    Or maybe he could chime in here, and let us know he is OK.
