Doesn't he have the sexiest calves in the whole world? I mean, for a man....
We went and picked scuppernongs this afternoon. Hubby loves them, and he saw an ad in the paper for a place where you could pick your own. We rode the motorcycles down there, which made it that much better. Of course, it also limited how many we could pick. I guess that's a good thing too. Maybe there will be a few left by Monday so I can take some to school for lunch.
We also went to the Harley place to see about getting a sissy bar put on my bike, along with a luggage rack. We are doing a ride next weekend to Helen, and we originally thought we would spend the night up there. We have since changed our minds about that, but I still need a sissy bar if I'm going to carry anything on my bike. Like my lunch. Or my bookbag. Or my big-dog camera. In the week I've had it, I've already replaced the seat on my Harley ($$$$$) and now I'm adding the sissy bar and luggage rack ($$$$$). But the bike was free, after all, so I can justify spending money on it. If I have to. Which I don't.
The ride next weekend is an escorted ride called The Ride to Survive, to benefit our local rape crisis center. We did it last year, and it was awesome. We were probably in the first third of the group (probably around 200 motorcycles), and when we got to the turning around point, we could see the tail of the "snake" coming into the parking lot. It was a neat thing to see. Having police escorts all the way was also very cool. Blowing through red lights, having cars pull over for us, people stopping to wave at us when we went by. I didn't have to worry about being left behind, getting lost, or not keeping up.
I also did some housework this morning; I was washing dishes at 6:15 this morning. On a Saturday. Vacuumed, mopped, stripped the bed and washed the sheets, did the grocery shopping. I'll never be a good housekeeper, but getting up and getting some things done allowed me to go off on the Harley with a clear conscience.
And the Dawgs won, although they nearly gave me heart failure.
Altogether a very productive day.
