Wholy cow.. boating season
gone again!

Our Sabre Craft 26+' boat is in it's slip at Lake Coeur d'Alene.  A dandy fishing and relaxation platform.

The "NetBest's Early Times" has spent the last several years, sitting quietly... parked next to the garage. Since Febryary 24th, 2006 when the "harbormaster" called to let me know it was about to sink. It appears that, either by the mindless efforts of someone who thought a boat shouldn't be icebound.. or because the winds did blow.. a small hole appeared in the hull just at the water line. It sank....  Ask me about Progressive Insurance.. if you want to hear a nightmare story. If you want to know my opinion of the "harbormaster" at 11th Street Docks... I'll be happy to share that as well.

I've been so busy during the boating seasons... I've not had it back in the water though it's ready to go. Anyone looking for a good boat?

Brother Ron & Me
Brothers Ron and Bill (me) in our youth
Once upon a time, there were two brothers. They were constantly getting into mischief but truly enjoyed their "formative" years.  Now in our 60s, we are hoping to begin the "mellowing" process (soon).  Ron's on the left... He was a cute kid back then..... Now, pretty deep into our 60s... I'm the cute one.

Remembering Mom

Mom and Dad Mom passed away on June 29th, 2009 and left the pains of age and Alzheimer's disease behind!   She now rests, as she wanted to, near her Father and Mother in the Palouse cemetary.  We Love You Mom!

Dad passed on April 7th, 1988... we still miss him.



Usually, I try not to openly discuss my political views here but... I am truly concerned that the current administration is not only inept but, possibly, criminal and... as a Veteran... I ask EVERYONE to step back and take a long look at what's happening to our country.

Above are mug shots of the original X-GTE rogues from the monthly Poker party.  Bill Rigdon (AZ), Larry Anderson (CA), me, Jerry Vanderzanden, Bob Leisenring, Carl Gidlund and Kayo Handcock have a great time exchanging small change.  It's kind of sad but, with the relocation of Bill Rigdon and Larry Anderson, our get-togethers are becoming less frequent.


Biker Greatgranny

Our Biker Great Grandmother, Arvilla Perry.  Born August 9, 1893 in Watauga County, North Carolina.  In Heaven since  February 27, 1985.  Died in Palouse Washington.

No, she didn't have a tattoo or carry a knife, brass knuckles or a gun.  At least, I don't think so.  Maybe she wasn't one of "those kind" of bikers.  Here, Biker Greatgranny is busy doing bike Valet Parking (Tom Valley's Bike).

R.I.P. Nibbs...
After a while... Dave found a Blue Healer pup... her name is B.D. for "Beautiful Dog"... or... maybe just "Bugger Dog". Pictures to come later but... they look a lot alike.
RIP Nibbs - 2-26-2018
