Well, first of all, Logan is obviously a better model than you are....  Looks pretty sharp in his 'coon skin hat and goggles... :)

Second of all, that's definitely an example of a thorn between roses in that first picture, ain't it????

   I found the GB residence with no real issues after that, and I will echo Troll's sentiments from his experience with the family last year, you can not find such nice hosts, they do have a very strange custom, after supper they all stand around the dinning room and then suddenly they all jump and make noises and turn the light off and then go and sit in the dark living room and chat and missus GB goes around lighting candles. Strange but a super couple.

OK, I'm FINALLY getting back fully on-line after the "Andy" night.  we had such a lightning storm that night,  Between being gone to Drift-In, a couple more riding days after that, then our family vacation last week, I still don't have all the damage fixed.  The lightning was so bad that night, I feel blessed this is all that was damaged (so far).

Phone lines coming into the house:  fried
Internet router:  fried
Computer network card:  Fried
In-ground dog fence transformer:  fried
Dog fence control box:  fried

Once I found the phone lines, and repaired them, still no internet (we have DSL).   Figured out the router was not working - got a new one from the ISP, and got it to hookup to DSL, and I could get wireless internet on the laptop - but nothing working on my main computer.  Figured out is must be the network card, so went out and bought a WIFI adapter, and went that route.  So now I'm finally back fully on-line. 

The dog fence will have to wait....

You're lucky that is all that got cooked. I've seen mainboards with holes burned in them, big screen tvs catch fire, lots of stuff...

   Now wait are you blaming me for all this damage?

 Or are you trying to say what I was telling everyone at Drift In was a tall tale? But it was a good story........Even got a good laugh from Dawn......lol.....

Sheesh. What a mess. Like troll says, Luckily that is all that got damaged. Your house could have gone up in smoke, then you would have had to move the whole kit and kaboodle up to Andys......or Trolls, maybe...Trolls place would be good, you could open a bay just for motorcycles and such....Troll could do all that work for you....

Uh oh. I just realized I am starting to sound like the Ratman...... :o ;D
