I just left my lawyers office and he told me about something that just about broke my heart. One of his clients was hit on his Harley by a Government Vehicle. He was a carpenter and can't work. When he met with his client, his wife was down to 85lbs. and his kids were gigging for frogs to try and eat. My lawyer is asking for canned food donations to help this family out, or any other non perishable food items. Do you think we could collect some food for this guy and his family and then bring it down to my lawyers office?

Yes I live in Vegas, and there are marshy areas around and I have seen frogs. The point here is that there is a family in need and they are part of the riding community. I just talked with Ed and we could set up a collection box at moto for the family. Does this sound like it would work?

I appreciate it, but it ain't me. My dad used to do this kind of stuff when I was growing up. I just forgot about it over the years. It is my way of honoring him and feeling close to him.
