    Well, that is true, but...

    I was talking about her regular clothes. Both she and I ride in
    whatever we were going to wear anyway.

    I have a tattoo on my right upper arm and would like to get one on my
    left side to balance things out.
    I originally was going to get a dog, maybe have it done from a photo
    of my springer, but now I'm thinking about a roadbike. I still haven't

    Anyone got any ideas on the roadbike? Maybe a drawing or another
    tattoo that you have seen?
    It is one of those things I'll do when I see the right one. It took

    Life is Good!
