Rob,

Awesome pictures and good on you for the trip. It looks like it was both peaceful and revitalizing.

Reference your telling off the f***s who parked in the handicapped space - you absolutely SHOULD have. My Dad was severely physically handicapped from a stroke and absolutely needed those spaces when he went out. Nothing fries my pinata worse than people who don't care and park there anyway. My Dad was stubborn as all get out and tenacious as Hell, but he had lost his ability to walk safely for more than a few steps and he spent most of his time in a wheelchair over the past year or two. He passed away 3 weeks ago, so I'm probably being overly sensitive to this, but I want you to know that I for one, feel it was entirely appropriate for you to say whatever you said, and thank you for doing so.

Crusher, I'm sorry to read about your father's passing :( and hope you and your family are doing well !

My dad passed away in '89 after a long battle with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Talking about it still chokes me up.

Hey Rob,

Condolences to you too. It's that da** diabetes. Type 1 especially.

Anyway I spent a week on the Eastside two weeks ago and that helped, as I expected being outside and in nature would. Need to get back up there soon.

Keep at it yourself and stay tough!
