pup and ramp

Yesterday Patricia and I got a puppy. She is an English Bulldog/Boxer mix. We are leaning towards the name Basil (thanks DeAnna).

Kylie came over today to cut some templates for the mini ramp. We started from scratch at 11 am and it was skateable by 6 ish, a bit more than just the templates. Kylie is the most efficient mini ramp builder in the universe - thanks again. Thanks to Steve-o for helping me get the materials to the house. I've got a little more work and it will be done. Stoked!

Good luck to those dealing with wind damage. Sr. Martinez had a tree land on his wife's car. The car was brand new, 6 days old. Nikoli had a neighbors patio umbrella fly through his house window. A utility poll fell on MoFro's work truck and an electric meter uprooted from beside his house.

    HOLY CHIT! Hadn't heard about Mofo's truck. And David's brand new car, that sucks!! Ya know, I think I'll shut up about my lil' window. Though it'd all be alot easier to deal with if I had a garage in which to skate!! You rock Mofo. You suck Junior! ;) Can I come over to play? :)

    No damage up on "Redneck Ridge".
    Course we're quite a ways from D'ville.

    Sorry to all the folks who got hit!
    A Hurricane in Louisville...Who woulda thunk it???

    Sweet mini Jr. Nice job MOFO.

    Puppy looks good too.

    What do I have going???
    Oh yea! I'm going to Phoenix in 6-1/2 weeks!!!!!!!!!!

    Congrats on the pup and the mini!
    Best wishes to all with damaged property. We lost almost half of our Hackberry Tree. (The largest tree in our yard-it will die.) But we have much to be thankful for, it could have been a lot worse.

    Congratulation on your new member of the family, and also to finally have the mini you wanted.

    I also want to wish luck to all of you who got anything damaged, vehicles, trees, roofs, or anything else.

    I will show you pictures sometime. It sucks having to deal with the insurance company and having to pay some for something that we did not caused.

    Good luck to all of you...

    A big shout out to all with issues from the storm!
    Nik, Kyle, Dave: Good Luck!

    On a more Cretin-esque front: What exactly went on between Mofo and Jr Sunday that allows Jr to refer to Mofo as "Kylie?" Kyle was working on your rAmp, not your rUmp, right, Jr.?

    Inquiring minds want to know. 'Kylie.' Is it good enough to replace 'Mofo?' I will get a few test runs, just to see.

    "Do the loco-motion..."

    (Sits back and waits to see if any gets the reference...)

    Reference lost on NoShow.

    However, I would like to help Junior welcome the new family member and new "home improvement."

    As for damage, we lost our pear tree in the front. But it's been cracked since we moved in. And I tried to help Mother Nature by attempting to pull her down with rope and the Jeep. When J-Town removal services showed up, the 2x4 sticking through it was enough to convince them to take it down. Yeehaw!

    Very nice Jr. You know Mr. Brinely used to talk of wanting a boxer mix puppy, so keep an eye on that little guy.

    As for our damage, we have pretty significant roof damage, and trees everywhere. We probably lost a total of 5 trees. Hey, who wants to come to a chainsaw vs. tree party?

    Was wondering if u guys got hit too. This answers that question. Sorry to hear about your damages. Sounds like "Kylie" got some damage to his rear area. The only thing I had to deal with was no power for two days and tossing some food. Needed to clean out my refrigerator anyway.

    Can't wait to skate that ramp JR!!! (just don't call me Jonnie or My Little Pony or anything like that)

    See you all soon!

    Another indoor skate spot, cool Junior. I Lost a tree, it took down the dsl and phone. The wire lays on the ground but I have phone and internet. The tree broke a window when it fell. Finally, running on a generator, glad it hasn't been hot. Still no power, but the most important thing is that the megamini is safe, and begging for a session. Hope I have power by the weekend to session on sat. Good time to camp at the ramp. Phil Roth

    WOW! Sweet mini! That will be endless hours of fun! Sorry to hear of your wind woes.

    I heard devin had a great time the other day at the mini. I am interested in coming out and skating. Can I meet up with him and come out?
