"To the family in the red SUV at Tim Horton’s today.
Yes I am a big 280 lbs guy with motorcycles
and a full of tattoos, I am a welder, I am loud,
I drink beer, I swear and I look like I would eat
your soul if you stare at me wrong.
What you don’t know is that I have been happily
married for 11 years, my kids call me daddy,
I am a college graduate, my mother is proud
of me and tells everyone how lucky she is to
have such a wonderful son,
when my daughter broke her arm I cried more
than she did.
I read books, I help people, I go out of my way
to thank war veterans and I even cried at Armageddon…
So next time I smile and say hi to your little girl
and you grab her and tell her
“No no dear we don’t talk to dirty bikers”
remember that even tho you hurt my feelings
this “dirty biker” would be the first person to run
into your burning house to save your little girls
gold fish so she wouldn’t be sad!!!!"

Something You Might Not Know About Me: I've been married to my wife Susan for over 24 years. She is a now runs her own business writing grants for non-profits in Michigan. My youngest son, Ben (19), had major brain surgery for seizures in Aug '05. He is completely recovered and is a sophmore at GVSU! My other son, Harry, is 21 wants to be a Naturalist/Vet goes to MCC.
My big life changing experience was a motorcycle accident during the Roofsit in Sept '06. It was humbling to have so many listeners praying for me during my 6 operations. I was off the air for 6 weeks and in a wheelchair for about 5-6 months. Since then I have experienced complete kidney failure and have been on dialysis for 2 years. Spring of 2010 I organized TEAM CONRAD for the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan. Our 1st Kidney Walks did over 100K-- WOW! I was blessed in Jan 2011 with a kidney transplant from listener/donor Kristin O'Leary from Grandville. I have so much to be thankful for... but especially for your thoughts & prayers.
