As I mentioned in the newsletter last
week, I will be taking the next 2 weeks off from the newsletter editorial to relax, take some needed time off and get ready to start a new
year. Hope to do a little bit of flyin', a little bit of ridin' and a little bit
of nothin'. Kind of sounds like a country song doesn't it? In fact, here is one
that I took from
the air today of the new Diamondbacks Spring Training Stadium. I
will post some pics from the air and the ground on Cyclerides.com
Facebook as I get them. In them meantime, I will still leave
you with a few nuggets from past letters.
The time off has been good so
far as I have all of my Christmas shopping done already. For the
first time in probably 30 years I won't be shutting the lights off at Costco
Christmas Eve on my way out the door, trying to get one last item to round
out my list. Now I can actually coast till the big day. No more check
out lines or crazy drivers for me.
Mrs. C. and I
would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas.
We hope you have the
opportunity to relax and enjoy the time with your family and friends.
After the last couple of years of economic and political turmoil,
Lord knows we all need it. Christmas Blessings to all.
If you want to relax and take some
virtual rides while you are waiting for family to show up for Christmas dinner,

gas before you can think straight.

old riders pick a direction and go.

10. Catching a yellow jacket in your shirt at 75
mph can double your vocabulary.

and duct tape, it's serious.

out of a car window.
