Just stalling...

Posted by DaveSmith

Okay, real posts will be happening soon.

I've got a post about going to Buena Vista, Colorado, for the Horizons Unlimited meet. It's overlander motorcyclists. And I'll post some more stuff about last Christmas in Perth. But that'll be in a few days.

Just a bit of a delay. I almost bit the end of my tongue off a couple days ago when I had a seizure.
It's pretty good having a swollen, black & blue, tongue and the steady diet of soup should help me lose some of my blubber. So yeah, while I'm feeling a bit under the weather, I'll get my computer and DSL hooked up, so I can start up with Perth.

We've found four or five bottles of pee in the cabinets that the subrenters left behind. They trashed the apartment, too. It's always a good time. I'll be heading to Belize and Mexico in October, so new travel stories should be popping up. Plus, there's an abandoned railroad project I'm looking into so I might travel up the tracks.

Seizure later,


New Number: 916/447-4168

Hey,,, I have Yngwie Malmsteens guitar... he lit it on fire and threw it in the crowd here in portland years back,,, The plastic guitar strap burned my arms with bits of melted plastic,, my date at the time was a nurse from Kaiser,, she was not impressed. I got dog piled but hung on. I took it back years later to another show and Yngwie and the band signed it,,although he looked really nervous i might sue him or something when i mentioned the burnt arms. I now have the Guitar mountd on my wall.
I babbled about the guitar while drunk while at the norton rally,,, but very few people know who Yngwie is..You suck for not showing up,,,i even bought a 12 pack of pabst blue ribbon for you to drink. rally was fun in a weird way..

Hey, I have Tommy Ahvala's riding jersey from the Observed Trials World Round, held in Watkins Glen in 1994. I was in the pits at the end of the day when Tommy came in, took off the jersey, and gave it to the team manager. I asked for the jersey, which the manager handed to me (sorry, no burnt arms or dogpile), but Tommy disappeared before I could get him to sign it. Well, this last weekend, at Vintage Motorcycle Days at Mid-Ohio, I finally got Tommy to sign the jersey after his extreme trials demo.... nice guy.
I also got a commerative number plate signed by Brad Lackey, Jim Pomeroy, Sonny Defeo, and Jim Smith; all former Motocross World Champions. I also finished 5th in Intermediate in the Vintage Observed Trials on my 1976 Honda TL150, and 3rd in +40 Novice Post Vintage MX on my 1983 Honda CR480. I now have the trophy mounted on my office wall, next to my Luge trophy.
Remember, today is Ride to Work Day http://www.ridetowork.org/docs/2005RTWDPR.html

hey sparkey,,, the other version of that joke is,,"yer a martini shaker!"
Anyhow.... Just read in the Liberal media that "Scotty" of "Star Trek" fame has died.. lived up in washington ,in a suburb of Seattle which explains a few things..(Bill Gates et al)
Anyway im conviced that Daves Attack and Scottys death are connected. i think the cosmic cord was severed sending Dave into a tailspin the humnan body is barely capable of enduring. I bet if you look a the time of Daves attack and Scotty "going home where no man has gone before" are truly a connected event. I think perhaps a tribute concert tour of the band might be in order and some sort of offering to the gods of space and time continuam might be required...remember that episode where the crew thought they found God on that planet?? rememeber in that other movie Vee-ger?? Powerful forces not easily seen are at work here.

Gees, did ya go to SN to get your picture tooken? If not, I suppose it is some other generic office, but it sure does look like it. BTW: if you had bitten it off, we could've thrown it on the bbq! Mmmm... grilled Dave tongue. Give us a ring-a-ding some day - *our* number ain't changed. Or I suppose we could call you, but then that wouldn't be playing it coy.

Posted by: Lurch at July 22, 2005 06:55 PM

Oh, as was just brought to my attention, you might want to wait to call until your tongue can say more than bleybleybleybley.

Posted by: Lurch at July 22, 2005 06:59 PM

Yeah, it's been a lot of "bleybleybley" lately. I don't like being in this position AT ALL and I've been in a pretty pissy mood. BUT, I think it's over now. I've been thinking about even taking anti-seizure medication again.

Picture by my seester Kellye "Smith". If I had your number, don't you think I would've called??? Still living out of a cardboard box right now....

Visits to Ohio, Wisconsin and Oregon coming up though....

Posted by: joe at July 24, 2005 04:07 PM

Well i suppose you're gonna get from Ohio to Winsconsin via Kentucky, Tenessee, Missouri, Iowa, and Minnesota just so you won't have to pass through Chicago & pay me a visit. Humph. Guess i'll take the Pokemon sheets off the spare bed.
