A nervous moment

There were a few delays in the new owner of my motorcycle coming to pick it up but Saturday was the day. It was a fitting rainy somber day. The new owner is part of the ministry team at a Church in Atlanta and is a great guy. He is selling the car he drives to make them debt free and will drive the motorcycle 45 miles each way to work. He had been looking for a month or so for the right motorcycle before he found mine. Well, I almost ruined that....

He was going to bring a friend to drive it back as he is still learning to ride. But one of the last minute changes was that the friend couldn't make it but he loaned his truck to the Pastor to pick up the bike. He said he had a ramp for the truck so I thought, no problem. Well, the ramp turned out to be a 2 x 6 that was about eight feet long with a metal plate on one end to hold it on the tailgate. Not to mention it was at a very steep incline going up to the truck bed. So I put another 2 x 6 on either side of the "ramp" so I could keep my feet down as I drove it up. I got part way up then the back tire started to spin. I almost pooped my pants. He pushed, I pushed, we both prayed and the motorcycle burned a wheel the rest of the way up the ramp. I really thought at one point it and me were going to fall over. Just another note from God telling me it was the right decision to sell it:) Now I am selling all the jackets and other motorcycle gear, Dave Ramsey would be happy.

Not sure what was happening in these pictures but they are one after the other. It looks like something scared Addison. Then William turns around and is ready to defend his sister.

Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations. When you have to wait a year to sleep next to a tree, something is wrong.

The pictures are absolutely priceless!!! Addison seems much better now that William is going to take care of the problem. I wonder what Jackson was thinking?
