Bandido Gimmi Jimmy's Birthday Party at Sam's Town Point
We talked to lots of friends at Bandido Gimmi Jimmy's birthday party at Sam's Town Point in south Austin today. The weather was wonderful (mid 60s), which was quite a change from the several inches of show we got earlier this week. The event was very well attended, with all the local and some not so local clubs and ride groups coming in to enjoy the free sausage wraps and the fellowship. We certainly filled Sam's Town Point to capacity, and It is great to have a local establishment welcome us in, as colorful as we might be. Here then without delay are a few pictures i took today, starting out with the guest of honor, with some of his grand-children. Click any picture for a larger version.
Of course no birthday party would be complete without the cake;
Shaylah Dame Benefit at the Road House
A benefit was held for the parents of of Shaylah Dame, who was killed out in Round Rock, in front of the community center.
The event was primarily to provide emotional support for the family. Most of us can't even imagine what it is like to lose a son or daughter in such an unfortunate way.

The crowd and the musician, he was excelent by the way, though I don't know his name;
And of course I wish I could take him home, but I had to give him back to daddy;
