Veterans Day.

As I rode to work this morning I was trying to imagine what it might be like for all of us if all of you courageous men and women hadn't stepped up to the plate to serve your country. I probably wouldn't have been able to ride my british motorcycle to work on a bright sunny morning, that's for sure!

I was on the phone with my mom last night and she was telling me how stoked my grandpa was about today. (He was the gunner dude in the belly of the B-25 pictured down below.) He moved into a new senior complex a couple weeks ago, and they're having a big to-do today for all of the veterans and what not who live there. She said he dug out all of his old photos and memorabilia and was giddy as a school girl to show it all off. He's 87. I hope I have something to be equally excited about when I'm his age.

Anyways, I'd like to throw out a big thank you to all of the men and women who have and are currently serving our country!
