We went to Ox’s memorial service downtown in Austin this afternoon. It was very well attended, and it was a great service/send off for Scott Sleeth Ox. He is greatly missed.
We headed out this morning to Heritage Motorcycle Supply, as the first stop for the benefit being put on for Boot Campaign. We were a little late, so we arrived at the shop about the time most everyone was heading over to Willie’s Joint for the music and BBQ. But we did get a nice tour of the HMS by one of the owners, and they are certainly busy, with lots of bike to work on. I think that’s a good thing 🙂
Next we headed over to Willie’s Joint for lunch and the party. There was a good crowd, but we did manage to find a place to park, and walked in to enjoy the company, the music, and of course the food. Speaking of the food, Debbie and I shared a 1/2 lb of pulled pork, which was plenty to make some sandwiches, with enough left over to dig through with a fork, to finish off what was left. They were having a bike show, so we voted in that, and later they presented some really nice trophies to the winners. All in all, a pretty good day.
Oh, one more thing;
After we left the party, we headed up to St Davids South, to visit with Jim Ostrander who runs Texas Mist. I had read that he was in the hospital having a few “problems”. Unfortunately for us (fortunately for Jim), he was discharged yesterday, so he wasn’t there. It was all good though, as we were leaving I was able to talk with an elderly man (yes there are people older than me still around) who was in for some work on his heart. We talked for a few minutes, and I was able to pray with I’m before I left, and I also gave him a copy of my book (of course I did). Anyway, I pray he will fully recover fully from his issues, and in talking with him, He mentioned he was a retired pastor. Small wold. He is in God’s hands, where there is no safer place to be.
