Astride Bike

Had a friend tell me long ago that I didn’t buy motorcycle parts, I bought patterns. I’ll be damned if I don’t hear his voice every time I try to buy something nice for my bike.

On the jobLife is full of plan B, a lot more plan C, and the occasional plans D, E, and F.

Success in life is due to a combo of luck and hard work.  When luck fails, you have to be able to work harder!  The Patio King has always been willing to work hard to make ends meet. He also understands you can’t always get things “you’re way”…life is not Burger King…so those Dirty Jobs Mike Rowe talks about are honest ways to make a living. For those willing to work hard, there’s the satisfaction of a job well done—and a paycheck to go along with it. Of course, men like the Patio King are the ones who do those tough and unglamorous jobs, to make life pleasant for the rest of us.

Being Here–And There, Too

On the town…with the Patio King. I wonder if Miss Turnstiles can be found?!

No matter where I go, I always find myself there.

The Patio King has always been a master at being “in the moment.” While I was rushing around from place to place, he always seemed to have the mindfulness to be present where he was, and with those around him. Good advice for all of us–find yourself where you are!
