I know yall. I have neglected my blog something awlful. I have had ALOT to say too. I have been busy too. There have been two major events in my life since my last blog.
The first event was my Uncle Richard passed.
We connected because he understood my love for horses because of his love for his motorcycle. He used to get such a kick when I talked about Felix because he used to say I lit up when I spoke about him. He would smile and laugh. He did get to see Felix. Our cookout will not be the same without him. Going over to their house is not going to be the same without being able to stroll out back to the garage to chat with him.
Here is a picture one of my cousins took of part of the motorcycle line up for the funeral.
We will miss him. RIP Uncle Richard. I will love and remember you always.
My favorite story about my uncle is the Watermelon Story.
My Uncle and his motorcycle club went riding somewhere in south Georgia. The used to ride out pretty deep and even included at least one truck and a van. The truck had my uncle's racing bike that he built with a friend. The pulled in to the strip where people used to race in this country town. The white guys were laughing at my uncle's bike and called it ugly. They just did not know that the club members had nicknamed the bike "The Big Ugly". Uncle Richard asked the white guys if they wanted to race. They white guys did not have any money left but my uncle noticed that they had a truck of watermelons. So my uncle put up money against a truckload of watermelons. They unloaded the bike and my uncle and his friend put the motor in right there on the spot. The won the race and their motley crew of motorcycle rider's rode off with watermelons everywhere they could put them. One rider said "We ain't gonna leave nam one!!" They rode through the next town giving away watermelons. LOL!!! I love it!! The Big Watermelon Giveaway!!
