Life is short...

Been a few days since an update so this might get a little long. Hang tight no guarantees if it isnt interesting. My aunt Judy passed away after about a 12 year fight with cancer while I was in Texas and her funeral was Thursday. I saw quite a few people I haven't seen in a long time and I even got to see the first person to ever give me a bike. Yep his name is Moso not sure if thats how you spell it but yeah I recall pretty vividly it was a pink frame with white tires haha. It was probably swiped from someone but I was stoked to get it when I was a kid anyway and I gotta give him some credit for being a factor in me riding BMX to some extent. It was good to see him and he asked how my racing was going and if I was riding well, I explained to him nationals and stuff like that and he was like thats cool you should try like a world class race and then I told him about how I went to UCI Worlds last year and snagged a spot in the main and he was really happy for him so I was glad to be able to tell him that bit of info. Anyway the funeral was nice alot of laughter and funny stories my aunt was pretty crazy and lots of people got up and told some lil stories and what not , so it was a good time and not too sad but at the end of the day someone you love isnt around anymore and that cant be changed. So to my auntie Judy love you and when its my time Ill see you again.

My aunt Marilyns 50th bday was Friday and we had a dinner at chevy's in Newark for her. About 40 people came from our family so we got sat outside in the party room. That worked well because I snuck in Bailey and tied her up under the table :) Shit worked out and I didnt get caught up haha. My aunt marilyn and I have a shaky past and ill briefly touch on it... She was probably my favorite aunt back in the day because she traveled alot did alot of camping and things like that. I love that shit so I liked her alot. Well fast forward to when I was in like 8th grade or so, I was hanging around alot at her house because she lives next door to my friend Mike who rides. Somehow a purse of hers comes up missing and I catch the blame for stealing it. Haha why the fuck would I steal a purse from one of my favorite aunts? Thats fuckin retarded if you ask me and Id never steal from family under any circumstances. The shitty part is I got blamed because my mom gave me a phone card number when I was in Reno to use to call home. That number was originally my aunts, and thats how the super detectives figured I stole it. What a fuckin joke right? Anyway her purse gets found a few weeks later along with her cell phone at the Jr. High in Newark that I never attended a day in my life and Mike was a freshman in HS so I didnt even know anyone in Jr. High. I catch the blame for everything and Im like a black sheep for hella long because supposedly I stole her purse. Keep in mind Im in AZ at this time and her BF is talkin hella shit about he's gonna whip my ass n shit lol dont get your ass beat dude, and especially dont get your ass beat over something that I had zero part in.... Anyway things between me and her have never been the same since that episode and a few people still think I did it but like fuck em you know? If you dont believe it you can kick rocks in my opinion- Anyway her Bday dinner was good I love chevys and ate a bunch of food. Lots of people came and of course we played cards after. That was my downfall I slowly lost $40 bucks and was bummed because all night I only won 1 hand LOL At least it was a royal flush though, but I got smoked and I havent lost for like 4months so I was kinda bummed. My sister came up a good $100 though so haha she was happy. Got home really late was crazy tired.

Saturday went to Napa with my sister n her kids to watch em race they got smoked at Napa but they had fun so it was whatever, then my sister gets an idea to go to Roseville which is past Sacramento to race the Saturday night race haha, I didnt care and I had Bailey with me so I didnt have to worry about her. We decided to go but had a few hours to kill I said we should hit the Jelly Belly Factory in Fairfield on the way so we did and did the tour. It was pretty cool to see how that shit is made and they give you sample bags at the end and they have alot of shit for sale. It was good and the kids liked it too. BJ ate a vomit, and skunk flavored one and I did moldy cheese, shit was nassssssty. Roseville went good Thomas won and had to pass a kid so that was good to see hes gettin better so hopefully he rides strong and goes to a national.

Sunday I rode! I rocked my sneakers and rode my race bike for about 5 laps just manualing around and jumping small things. Knee felt really good and I didnt have a brace on which was not smart I know but I was playing it safe so dont worry :) Anyway Im guessing about 3-4months of rehab and Ill be back to riding hard again. Im gonna ride careful like that once a week and I start therapy this month so that will help as well. Thats about all and Im sure you've lost interest by now. Thanks for stayin tuned and maybe pics or something coming? Iono. LOL have a good day and drive careful!
