My new bike

Nick here..

I just got back from the road trip to Vegas with my Dad where we met up with my cousin Stuart and picked up my new bike. Boy did it look good! I am so excited to ride it this weekend with my buddies.
Here are some pictures:

Dear Nick,
It was a fun week - may the next three months pass quickly - may your new bike build up your spirit, body and mind - may you experience God's love in all things. Amen.

P.S. I have no idea what new adventure will cause our paths to cross (graduations, weddings, vacations, motorcycle shopping, etc) but I look forward to them with a joyful, thankful heart. Love, aunt Chris

Healing Monday to you Nick,
You are in my prayers this evening - Monday, October 1st - 2007. I look forward to the next posting on your blog - I can't even begin to guess who will visit you this week - but I know your Fairy Godmothers are always present in spirit. Laugh and laugh more! Science has proven that laughter causes positve chemical reactions in our cells. I'd tell a joke right now - but I can't remember any! Maybe others who visit this site can help me out and post some jokes. Please!!
Love to you, aunt Chris

Hey Nick, Nice Bike!
And it's in Toronto Maple Leaf Blue and White. That's terrific.
I think the profile shot is really cool, especially you standing sideways. Looks like the bike has a huge aerial. Man, you gotta put on some pounds.
So, what the most fun thing you've done on the bike so far? What was the one thing that scared the #$%out of you? And, since you obviously survived that experience, what did you learn from getting the $%^&* scared out of you? How much did you laugh afterwards?
Nick, I got 20 Bucks CANADIAN that says,"Leafs Finish Ahead of Ducks in Regular Season Standings" Of course, thats a real long shot, but I'm a Homer, and if you can't root for the Home Team then waht are ya really. Are you up for another wager?
I had planned to be in SLC today and finally meet you. Unfortunately I was not able to travel due to unexpected family circumstances. I sure hope to meet you soon.

Can you imagine going out to dinner with Chris?
I wouldn't be able to finish my appetizer, I would be laughing too hard.

Dear Nick,
Greetings from Houston Texas. I just have to use the letter C today to describe Jesus. Jesus is the original Cowboy. May He ride with you these next couple of weeks as you "Cowboy Up" and live life large.
Love and prayers from the heart of Texas, aunt Chris
