The Fixie

Well, I have to admit, when I saw the bike I knew nothing about it. I just thought, hmmm "It's ugly and weird and it just looks like a bike from a garage sale or something"  I was totally wrong. I guess I was looking at one of Brad's treasures and did not even know it. After Marianne explained the fixed gear thing to me she dared me to get on it  "Go ahead, try it, c'mon, you gotta try it" Thank goodness I felt lazy that day! I did not try it.

Here is a link and the the content from a message board Mari found. It turns out that it is Brad's friend Rob who was at the service. Hopefully we will soon see him telling stories here.

Another one! Notice the spelling of filthy. Maybe we should talk to Phil?

There are a couple of different theories of what Brad meant by this, but however you look at it, it is funny. I continue to find these silly little things Brad had and did, and then I miss him even more.


This was another funny story, I hope Kate adds her thoughts on it also. We were sitting at the funeral home with the funeral director trying to work out the details of Brad's service and we were trying to decide what picture to put up for the "main" picture. Well after a few thoughts we were leaning towards this picture with Brad and Emily and his guitar. How perfect, how Brad. While all the while Kate was just quietly going along with this. Well, then we had said how we could blow it up to an 8x10 and put it in a frame etc. All of the sudden Kate pipes up and says "Blow it up? You are going to blow it up? Oh I don't know about that."  Well why, it should be fine we start discussing, and then she proceeds to tell us that there were some inappropriate things on his guitar and blown up you would see this and it wouldn't be good, and so on.

Clear CD's

As I was going through more boxes, I found a small stereo/cd player Brad had. Out of curiosity I opened the cd palyer to see what he might have had in there and this is what I found.  Of course I instantly smiled and giggled because this was Brad. I took it to mean the actual cd player did not work and so out of aggravation, he made this for it. But after talking to Kate, she said that Brad used to get so aggravated at these clear plastic cd's that came with the pack of new cd's. It was a piece of junk, worthless and such a waste. So maybe that is what this is, is the aggravation of the worthless piece of junk clear cd. However you slice it, it's funny.
