Rip's B.A.D. Ride Featuring Larry Hagman

As promised, here's the famous dude I said I would post earlier. I've been a fan since I Dream of Jeannie and later Dallas, so to learn first hand the ailments Mr. Hagman has suffered and the charities he's sponsored, it was a great honor to stand by his side. Read more about our B.A.D. ride to Long Beach here (B.A.D. = Bikers Against Diabetes), a fundraiser featuring Larry Hagman. {Additionally/ironically, my mom's b-day is today ; she too has Diabetes and recently lost most of her eyesight. Prayers to you, mama and happy birthday.} More pics from the ride to follow ~ Stay tuned. *smackies* (p.s. My NBFF, P, is also pictured here *winky winky*)

Awesome of you to go ride. I know too many people with diabetes -- including a few kids who have Type 1 -- and really. There HAS to be a way to cure it. Yeah, prevention is a big thing, too, for the Type 2 people. But when I look at how the kids are affected...

Great shot of Larry Hagman. Of course I remember his shows. I didn't know he has diabetes. I'm sorry he's been sick! My husband Vinny has diabetes too. Just diagnosed1 But he's doing very well.

I've heard about his health challenges over the years.

Happy Birthday to your mom!

Woo hoo!!! What a pic! I'd be so excited. I was addicted to Dallas reruns for a long time (please don't tell anyone), but it was I Dream of Jeannie that really had me :)

Can't wait to see more!

How cool..and you are supporting a good cause - actually biking for a good cause. Keep it up, Chuck!

Diabetes runs in our genes too. That's why as early as now I try to keep a healthy lifestyle (although failing at time!).
And yes, happy birthday to your mama. I'll be praying for her.
