    That’s a big milestone. Tell him I said the second year is the hardest and see if he chuckles. It’s an inside joke.

    He decided a cheap enduro motorcycle would cover his transport needs, he hasn't had transport for a couple years, so we found a mid 80's Yamaha XT 200, making me want to get rid of the Harley an get something similar.

    Not to rain on a nice parade but there is a fairly tragic ending to this story,  sonny lost this job,  I misread his disappointment,  he took a fatal dose of heroin over the weekend and his pain is no more. We had a helluva run these last 14 months he was clean,  going to miss my wingman. RIP D

    Really sorry to hear this. My thoughts go out to you and your family.

    My son is 8 months clean and I often think about what would happen if something like this happened to him, if he doesn't stay clean, especially with the 2 granddaughters.
    There is no crisis that a good cigar can't cure.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.
