    Your Most Meaningful Pic 2009

    This may not be my best quality photo of 2009 but it is the most meaningful to me.
    I was laid off in February 2009 and out of work until late September.
    A couple of weeks into my new job I rode to work and took this picture.
    For obvious reasons it meant a lot to me to be back to work, and have a job I enjoy.

    My most meaningful picture was taken at the secret swimming hole in the Big Bend area of Texas. It signifies our family's first visit to our adobe last spring. They came back for Christmas so I think Big Bend has a hold on them too!

    Any photo of my daughter is more meaningful than any other photo regardless.

    This was taken of me last April in Purbach, Austria. I was in the church office and just found the birth record of my grandfather that was born in 1884. I had been trying to confirm the beginning and end of his life story.

    If you are a grandparent, you will understand why this is my Most Meaningful Pic of 2009.

    Taken last summer in our back yard.



    Ben's legs were too short to reach the water. I love the way the girls are bracketed, in years, by the boys.

    The Big Move in 2009

    This pan photo means that, after finally finishing six months of work on the roof, insulation and HVAC, we moved into the house that we inherited from my wife's parents. More info at

    My R1200RT was in the carport when this was taken last May; now it's in storage at Mischler's until spring returns.

    Celebrating our 60th birthdays in Ireland with 15 of my "best freinds". Great time even though it was all on four wheels. Spent lots of pub time drinking Guiness.

    In the end, you will regret much more those things you didn't do, than those which you did.

    This is the end of my first ride of 2009, at the end of day one. Off to get cardiac stents...

    I will stick to a motorcycle theme for this. This is a picture taken at the summit on the Cherohala (TN). I love the Winter weather; it is so much fun to ride in the freezing cold and yet be warm and comfortable (a little Bubba Zanetti in me??). Also, it was a ride with my best riding buddy, Doug. You can't have much of a better trip than that. This pic is of me.

    My in laws, who live in Saskatchewan, stayed with us for a couple of weeks in October. My father in law, who's 95, and I took a long run in the country, and then I took this picture:



    It would be my last, as we lost him just before Christmas. He was my father in law for 35 years, and a great guy.
