Off Topic News and Updates

It's been a while since I've posted and I do apologize to my friends out there in the blogger world. I've been pretty busy and distracted the last month or so, but I have been lurking your blogs as I've had time.

So, what's been keeping me so busy? A several things really. I'll share the largest distractions with you here in this blog.

First off, two weeks ago my wife gave birth to our son! Thomas Elliot was born June 23rd, 2009. He was 8lb 5oz and 21" long at birth (ten fingers, ten toes and all that good stuff). He and his mother are doing fine and everyone seems to be healthy. Here are a couple pictures of him taken today.

It turns out that nobody makes a 40k "one-sie". And his mother tells me he's too small to assemble or paint anything yet too. I guess I'll just have to give him a few months and let him roll dice for me... come to think of it... those are probably too small for him to play with, double damn. Ok, so he probably won't be old enough for the 40k hobby anytime soon. Maybe by the time he is I'll have an army painted for him to play with!

My second distraction came just a short time before Thomas arrived. While it doesn't compare in ability to be cute, fill a diaper or keep me up all night, distraction two is a lot of fun in its own right!

I've always wanted a bike and recently had a chance to take the rider safety course and get my motorcycle license. By the way, I recommend that class for anyone who rides or wants to ride a motorcycle. The bike is a Ducati Monster 1100S, and it's a blast! I've always wanted a Monster, so choice of bike was pretty easy. Also, a couple guys at my local GW store and I are thinking of starting a 40k biker gang... well, not really, but we may be terrorizing the streets together all the same. It would be a bit of an eclectic group, one Ducati, one Aprilia, and a Buell.

I appreciate folks stopping by. I do plan to get back on the blogging and I think this little ice-breaker might be just what I needed to get back to blogging after too long away. I still owe you guys a finished Reaver blog and blog on Reaver building 'what to watch for'. Later guys!
