If that materialized, it would become more of an ER.org classic than the picture of a bunny with a pancake on it's head.

I started thinking about more photoshopping of photos on this thread, like the "if they mated" combinations, but I thought I might get carried away.

Yeah, knowing you, I fear when "if" becomes "how"...

I had to Google Donovan Leitch, but I think I fit the bill....

Someone had run his car down the side of our son's car recently, leaving a dent and lots of white paint on his rear wheel arch and rear fender. I spent an hour or so with my son rubbing off the white paint with a gentle abrasive, and I now have a blister on my index finger. When I complained that it hurts to scroll the mouse button tonight, DW called me a "nancy boy".

Made one of these basic vids in 2010 with my younger daughter so last summer I got the older daughter involved in a new one. Nothin fancy here. I added ~15# since the 2010 vid but have shed it again this winter in order to battle a couple of revolting lumbar discs. Ain't growin old a bitch! Cheers.....

Targa -

Thanks for the video! If it ever gets warmer here (and lot more windy) I might give something like that a try. Looks like a fun time.

You must work hard to keep your shoulder girdle in good shape. It looks like a lot of the stress is on your shoulder joints. Pretty good core challenge too!

Great videos.

Dave,

Awesome video; I'm amazed that a kite could move a big guy like you along so fast. Waiting for 2012 video.

My 110 pound daughter who wanted to learn spent the whole time saying "I'm a little scared" as she then proceeded to learn faster than just about every macho male jock I've taught over the last few years

Us old guys generally stay "hooked in" so not much shoulder stress at all......unless I happen to blow a jump, look down and suddenly realize I'm riding in 10 inches of water. I believe the universal pre-injury expression is "oh sh!" (the second word is generally never completed prior to impact....)
