Thanks Bro!  I'm really enjoying the transition to FSW.  100% positive writing, no whining, no "keeping up with the others."  It eases my mind and keeps me in my happy place, training and equipment.  Take care, boy I sure could use some Alaskan weather right now!  It's HOT!!!!  Myabe I'll fly up and have a cup of Joe with ya soon!

Brother Ben,
I hope things are safe and sound for you. I was finally able to make contact with a local FOOLS chapter here in Ohio. just wanted to drop a line and say hi, be safe.

Yeah, I fractured my hip, over-extended my knee, re-fractured my clavicle that I just had surgery on in December, bent the plate that they put in that same clavicle, and got a nice gash on my forehead lol. And it wasn't from a motorcycle, it was from my BMX bike while I was dirt jumping. There was a jump about six feet tall and I got about five feet of air on top of that plus I over cleared the landing, so I fell about 11 feet to flat bottom compacted dirt. Plus when I threw my bike to get away from it, it bounced back and landed on top of me lol. This time I'm really going to take the time to heal up a little before I start riding again. Fishing sounds fun. I wish I could go fishing... Lol.

I'm been taking it kinda slow since the incident, riding bikes is my escape from all the s*** in life. That's why it's so hard not to have an adrenaline rush if that makes any sense at all.

Hey Brother, I haven't forgotten your t-shirt. The dept hasn't placed the order yet. Hope you and your family are doing great. Stay Safe Brother.

Hi Ben
I thought I would let you know im climbing off my soap box this week and helping my Lt redo his leather helmet. Although I have preached my gospel to him on leather he still insists on painting it. So im back at your page to get some good advice on painting from your post. I forgot to mention before, but it looks like your helmet turned out beautiful! Nice job!!! And thanks for the tips, I will be cringing the whole time, but thats just me. we have agreed to disagree :) lol. Take care and be safe. and thanks again

Sorry to hear that. I hope you feel better soon. I can relate somewhat. Since my hip graft I've been having horrible hip pain. I can't sleep on the side that I had surgery on because it goes numb, and I can't sleep on the other side because my hip feels uneven in an awkward way causing shooting pain. I can sleep on my back for a while, but not for long. Just something I'm going to have to get use to I suppose. Lately I've had another problem bugging the crap out of me so my pain hasn't been too bad cause I haven't been focused on it. Good for the pain, bad that I got a worse problem to deal with.

How did you pull a muscle in your leg? We have been having massive amounts of car wrecks here because of all the rain. Californians aren't used to I guess lol. I'm healing up okay. Trying to stay off my bike so it stays that way. I see the surgeon this week and hopefully he has good news for me.

What have you been up to lately? Hope everything is good in your neck of the woods. Stay safe.

Thanks Ben. This is going to be my first time doing this and is a little nerves about doing this to my helmet.
