A very Happy Birthday wish to my favorite Senior Chief. May you drill many more holes in aluminum over the years.

Hey, DD is worthy of two parties, especially given his general good nature and sense of humor.

As an example, I recall this from the past year as one of his funny posts:

BTW, is is just my twisted mind - or does that head tube decal incorporate (intentionally or unintentionally) something that sorta goes right along with the framebuilder's name?

Hint: the archway

Happy birthday to you as well.

As for Jeff though, I don't think I've met many people that are more positive than this fellow.

The guy is a total upper.

Call him sometime if you are down in the dumps.

He'll fix you up pronto.

Thanks, guys and gals - it really touched my heart to see this thread to see when I got back from my day of riding

I am truly humbled - this is probably one of the coolest things to ever happen to me! TimmyT and gaucho777, you guys are just too awesome for starting threads; everyone else is too cool for saying all those nice things (some of which might even be true )

I really love this place - and here's yet another reason why

Thanks, everyone!

DD

Happy 60th! Did you get to go out and ride today?

I hope I'm still riding - heck, I hope I'm still above ground - when I'm sixty

Cheers!
