Sorry I'm so late with this but things have been crazy since I got home very late Wednesday night.

I finally have my pics put together and on my hosting site now. Feel free to check them out.

Pics here. I think the first 3 pages or so are of the Santa Barbara part.

Password is fjrchik

It was really great to meet some y'all for the first time! And thank you to Patti for letting me stay at her and Tim's house.

fjrchik: Thanks for the photographs. It was a real pleasure to be able to talk with you at length. We had met at WFO-6, but we only had a few minutes to chat; this time we had a nice half hour to talk. Looking forward to your coming to Arizona!!!

The site must be busy because it just "timed out" on my computer. What I saw was very nice. I'll come back and check them tomorrow....
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Great meeting you Michelle and those are some good pictures. Glad to see you were able to tour around San Diego, this place is beautiful, I always forget because I live here, takes other peoples pics to remind me. Oh, BTW, the Navy ship you took the picture of by the road, that isn't real. It is all plywood, it was the USS Recruit, part of the old Recruit Training Command here in San Diego. Never saw a drop of water, just the cement grinder it sat on. Good luck on the move out here, we would gladly invite you into the SOCAL FJR Riders fold. Somebody needs to teach Slappy how to ride..... tongue.gif

This is a link to TWN's Cousin Carol's photos from the weekend. For those of you who also saw the hardbound book that she put together, it can also be seen under "Projects".

For those of you who didn't get a chance to mee Paul (TWN's Step Son - AKA Blockhead on New to the Forum) - he's the big guy in the green T with Red(!) glasses.

I've just put (hopefully) the final touches to the tax preparation deadline for 2007 - Tim always looked for a good reason to delegate this task!

Thanks to one & all for making the Memorial Weekend such an incredible celebration of Tim's life. To think that everyone there was joined together because of one little XOXO, this fabulous Forum and the friendships that have resulted.

To all the Forum Friends, I couldn't have made it through the past month, let alone the Memorial Weekend without your prayers, letters, and love. This is one of the most amazing group of friends and family.
