I have a very busy schedule coming up for the holiday. Christmas Eve I'll start out at Barbara's fathers house with their family, then head up to my niece's house to spend the evening with my family. Christmas morning I'll be a my daughters house to spend some time with my son Thomas, his girlfriend Brandi, my daughter Jennifer and her husband Jay. Then it's off to Barbara's for the rest of the day with her family.

We're on our way, lighting up the darkness.
This house was right on the path, I had to stop and take a picture of it.

Tim's been busy over the last two years. During the summer between his sophomore and junior year at Franklin Pierce he had to make a tough decision. He had to decide on whether to continue his commitment to the soccer team or take one of the openings for training to become a Firefighter with the City of Pawtucket. He couldn't do both, the fire training conflicted with soccer training camp and his coach wouldn't give him any slack on showing up late. It wasn't an easy decision for Tim, but he looked at the big picture and knew that he would have to leave soccer behind. Fast forward to this year, Tim's completed all of his training, EMT classes, will graduate from Franklin Pierce with his classmates next year and has been sworn in and on the City of Pawtucket Fire Dept. A lot of young men his age wouldn't have been able to handle the work load Tim put on himself, but Tim will be the first to tell you that it was all worth it.We're all very proud of Tim and all the hard work and dedication he's put forth over the last couple of years.

The morning started out sunny when I left the lot at 9:45. That only lasted about an hour before the clouds started moving in and I no longer had the rays of the sun keeping me comfortable. There were plenty of ice patches on the roads and I had to dismount once and walk around one patch that covered the whole road. I didn't feel good during this ride, I've had a leg bothering me for the last couple of weeks and I didn't seem to have any strength in my legs at all when climbing. It was a relatively flat ride but it still took me three hours to complete the 33 mile loop. Pitiful, I only averaged 11 mph.

My best friend Dennis, bought this car around 1974, I think. It was a real killer and not too many cars could touch it in a drag race. It sat in storage for along time until Dennis decided to have it restored last year. It looks like it will be completed around April of 2009 and I can't wait to see it completed. We have alot of fond memories from back in the 70's, driving around in that beauty.
