    I got a new riding partner pics

    I've been looking for a riding partner for a while now and I finally found one. I did blow his doors off, but I'll give him a break next time.

    Hope you didn't get into a conversation with him. I've heard that some can talk the hind legs off a Donkey.

    Hey George, looks like you've made friends with one of the old management staffers from my former career.

    Nice bike.

    Man, you hit that on the head. I wasn't tired of working, it's the people you have to work for.

    My other camera went south so I picked up the Nikon Coolpix L22. I think it was $130. Still learning all the functions though, but it's not bad.

    I do believe thati s the same "burro" that - when I was about 11 and I jumped on its back - decided to find the lowest hanging clothes line he could find and run under it, and all the trees he could brush up against (with me on him with no saddle).

    What's the life span of a donkey?

    I cant believe how he walked up on me. I reached my hand out and he took a step back. Probably looking for a carrot or something. Just about that time, I wish I had something to eat.
    Hey Dnvr, you ever try and ride a hog. Man is that a trip.

    Hey! Green grass and a few leaves on the trees. Maybe there's hope yet! First and second day of Spring in northwest AR and we had around 10" of the "S" word.

    Friendly looking riding partner you've got there. If you do that ride again, you'll have to stash a carrot or two in your jersey.

    Nice looking ride and pics.
