So when you're little.. everyone always asks who your favorite (Super)Hero is... 

Usually the answers are.. Superman, Spiderman, Batman.... maybe toss in Ironman. 

Then you kind grow out of the superhero phase; kids grow up and while there may be really cool movies about them, you know those kind of super hero's aren't real. then the more you go through life you discover that there are in fact real life heros out there.... they just don't walk around with a Mask and Cape. 

Real hero's are the ones that, now matter what they're doing, they'll drop anything to come and help you out... even if it's a big inconvenience to them. They're the ones who know how to just about do anything... from home repair, to filling out random-paper work to working on an engine. They can show you what being a great father and a great husband is, everyday, without effort. They're the ones who.. having not ridden a motorcycle since the 70's, can just hop on it and make it look easy.. having never ridden that bike, let alone in unfamiliar territory AND at night. If it's 42 degree's outside; they don't complain.... they ride the damn thing anyways, cause they just want to help you out / make you happy. 

Batman eat your heart out. 

My Dad is my hero... he can fix anything, and he can do just about anything. When I grow up, I hope I'm half as awesome as he is. 

EDIT:  I got my first motorcycle last night... I'll be posting up pictures of it sometime today I'm sure. But Thomas drove it back (having never ridden it before) from East of Canton all the way to Kennesaw, at night in 42 degree weather.. and made it look easy.;

Very nice, Greg. I totally agree. Brings a tear to my sick little eyes.

(But, if you're shooting for the title of favorite child, sorry... I've got that locked up. You're a strong candidate for #2, though.)

Congratulations on the new bike! Can't wait to see it!

(I am using Cindy's account to post this as I don't have one.) Thanks for all the compliments bud, I really don’t know that I deserve all that but I am very glad that you think I do. You know I’ll do anything I can for you or any of our family that I can. Enjoy the new bike and be careful out there. It looks great and drives as good as it looks. Love……Dad
