@ MC - The site looks great. This art work deserves to be shared with way more people than just our little regulars at BF. I'm glad you have this out there for more to see.
@ Napo - I remember the day you joined also. I was like "Oh F***!! Not this guy from CC!!" Things have changed since those those days and I find myself more often than not having a positive reaction when I see you around.
I still cringe at some of your posts though
Bought my daughter a bike for her birthday (which is on Tuesday) yesterday. I remember how difficult things suddenly became financially for our family when I turned 15, and was not about to let a similar situation happen to my daughter. As an extra cool bonus, my father-in-law came to pick up the bike, and when we got home offered to buy my wife a bike. She usually turns down offers like this, but this time decided not to. She always had hand-me-down bikes as a kid and never had her own bike from her parents. Getting a bike was also one of her goals when she reached a certain weight, so it has extra meaning.
