Well, I sold the Harley today. It was not a great area to ride and we needed to be more responsible as we are caring for our Grandson. We have many many fantastic memories of our rides and will always consider ourselves to be bikers. Retired bikers!!
Life is good.....
In with Pinot Grigio ( a little early)

Cheers with cinnamon spiced tea to MaryLou. Let the healing process begin.

Congrats on the Harley sale, Maryanne.

Hope tomorrow is a better day, Linda.

Had a rum before and soup and sandwich for sup. Off to an HOA meeting to watch them fight, then when I get back will choose a beverage. I'm allowed.Test today corotids good. My cholesterol med is FAA approved and I can fly. Click my heels.

Maryanne I've had 2 Harley choppers on my journey. Have been thinking about one last bike as my friends ride. Might be a touring rig!

Travis had a 1980 Harley Sportster 1100 when we met in 1981. Sold it when we got married in 1983 to buy bedroom furniture. :lol: Many great memories!! :lol:

Dinners were some leftovers as we're trying to use them up before a week of travel.
It was some beef, gravy and noodles. Still yummy, comfort food.
Settling down now with some whiskey-flavored seltzer. Half typing, half listening to NCIS program on TV.

Nope...meant to order a yeti...what I hit (I guess) is one called "The Coldest Water"....I really like it....never before have I left the beach in Ar*ba with ice cold water after 5 hours....usually any leftover is warm to hot! :lol:

We were going to go out for dinner but with the game decided to stay in with burgers and fries.
Ann, one year we stayed in Aruba for 6 weeks and the last 3 days all I drank was water. It was a survival move.
Sox WIN !!!
Pat you were right. It was only one game.

Cheers! Been in for a while, but catch-up night for TV, Bull and NCIS.... About to go to bed WAY earlier than normal. I miss my biking days, but realize my last open ride was my Miata. Sense of balance, reaction time, cannot feel comfortable on just 2 wheels for many years now... :-( Photo is across from Daytona Speedway, early 1980's during Bike Week. I'm on the left (See the Miller logo on my jacket) My Yamaha Seca is the bike in the middle with the white cafe fairing. Good times. Wheelies at the stoplights!
