Like is Good

Woke up this morning to a beautiful day. Off work getting ready to take a 200 mile motorcycle ride with a friend of mine whose heading to Califorina from Va. No big deal other than he's 82 years young. I wanted to see him off right so I gathered up 25 other guys to go too! We rode with him awhile and sent him on his way. We took a nice senic ride home and when I arived back at home what did I see, my new K20D sitting on the dining room table along with some other goodies. Can't get much better than that! Can't wait to try it out and check out the difference between that and my K10D.

Oh the sweet smell when you open that box. The tightness of the memory card door when it opens the first time. The cold steel mount... *orgasm*
Mine's already 1.5 months old, but it still smells new!
Thanks for sharing this tale

I just want to say you're a Hell Of A Guy for rounding up a bunch of buddies to see him off like that. I'm sure it meant a lot to him.

That's some gorgeous country, especially if you're in the Blue Ridge Parkway area. When we lived in Nashville, that was always one of our favorite trips most anytime of the year. Nice send-off.
