Trifecta Flash 55.......

I attended my first Bike-Nite Tonight.
It felt GREAT!!!
I was sporting a new earring...
Domestic long necks...2 Bucks!!
Great burn-outs!!
One guy had some patches that I wanted to photograph...
I said.."Excuse me but, Large James was my little brother"!!!
His reply..."He was my step-dad...Your Uncle Galen"?
Tonight's 55 actually happened...This man's name was John Smith ( I know ),
And his mother Phyllis was married to my brother for 20 years..
My brother raised this fellow.
We had a couple of cold beers, reminisced a bit, and exchanged phone numbers.
He was really glad to have met me after all these years....
Darn!!...Did I just do two back-to-back 55's?
You betcha!!!!
If you, or anyone you know did a Friday Flash 55 this week,
Please come tell the G-Man...
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment, then BOOK!!!
Please everybody, have a wonderfull week-end.
And whats the chance of three 55's....Huh?

Oh, wow, you really did hit the trifecta. Excellent pix, and that new earring looks terrific.:)

Love the Large James story. What are the chances?! Small world, huh?

MIke Kilgore said...

Wow, that was an amazing story-and a trifecta to boot! Ok G man-I'm back to posting and even put the 55 up early..

jillie said...

OK...because it was an EXTRA special 55. I won't mention the fact that you have more than 55!!!

My 55 will be up in the a.m.

KB said...

Our friend, Missy sent me over. I've posted my first 55 EVER and here's you with a trifecta! No wonder they call you Mr.Knowitall, hehe.

ciara said...

show off! lol jk :) my 55 is up xo

smarmoofus said...

Maybe some day I'll write what a trifecta is for me... Strumpet would like it.

I love the "You're uncle Galen?!" bit... that's classic! But how is it that your brother was in that man's life, raising him, for 20 years and you two never met? Lovin' your trifecta, anyway.

I'm up!

SignGurl said...

What a story, G! That's pretty awesome.

I decided to write a 55 after all. You know how I can't be pigeon holed.


lime said...

wow, what an amazing coincidence and how special. glad you were able to reconnect after all this time.

gotta say dead "dead fucks" patch cracked me up.

buffalodickdy said...

Good that you two met!

G-Man said...

OK...let me explain something here...
For the last 25 years or so of my brothers life, he lived about 150 miles away...he was kind of shift-less, and a hard core biker to the Max!
He would only visit me if he needed money, and he never brought his family around much to see me...I hope that clears some things up!

I'm runnin late as usual, but never fear, I WILL visit everyones blog tonight when I get home...Later

Wow, that's two might fine 55s. :D I think that it is awesome that you to were able to meet up like that.

And... I have relatives like that who only come around when they need money. It's sad really, you keep thinking, if I help them out one more time, maybe this will be the one that gets them on their feet and at least stumbling in the right direction.

Have a great weekend, Galen.

James Goodman, Author said...

oh, and mine's up. :D

barman said...

Man what a wonderful trifecta and I love the pictures too. You are just so talented today. Oh dear, it just dawned on me what I missed in the pictures. I should have known there was a reason you turned your head. I best go look at the new earring.

You da man. And boy, the "dead fucks" patch brought a smile my way.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Strumpet said...


I have the same exact question as Smarmy-doll.

Did you and your bro live in separate states for that period of time when he was married to Phyllis?

Or am I just missing something?

Had you just not seen your nephew since he was wee?

...Oh, never mind, I just finished reading up the comments.

Thanks for clearing that up.


NICE earring.

It goes awesome with the fashion mullet!

I want to go to a bike night.

Not that I have a bike.

I just think it would be fun.

I also just caught up on your blog.

I had 8-tracks when I was a kid. Well, my parents did. They were fun and I wish I still had them AND the player!!

My dad had a reel-to-reel recorder, too, and one time he taped my brother and I singing Cheap Trick's 'Surrender.' Now THAT I REALLY wish I still had.

Anyhow, my internet hasn't been that reliable, so I didn't get to play with the pre-post options, but I did get my 55 up a little bit ago finally.

Hope you have an awesome day, dude.

You rock.

xoxo, Galen Lee


I do.
