A HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

AND LET THE HOLIDAY SEASON BEGIN...........

I am going to put my chickie on to cook in the morning (I am making Chicken
and Dumplings for dinner) (in case anyone is curious), and then I am lacing up
my boots and hauling it out the front door to the carport and saddling Harley
up and off I go....for a short sortie around town...

I hope all of you have a very safe and Happy Thanksgiving, and if you are going
shopping the day after, I pray safety around all of you. I am staying home. Me,
I got enough of Black Friday when I worked for dear Walmart..

Darlene

Thanks my Fellow Riders

Friday, November 20, 2009

Thanks everyone for the wishes and encouragement. The ride I went for
yesterday only whetted my appetite for more and more......I will only be
taking short trips on the bike since DH can't go with me and he worries
that I will have some difficulty and he won't be there, which I appreciate,
because things do happen.

I love the feeling of buzzing along, listening to the bike roar.........it is great
to be back in the saddle.........

  I'm so happy you finally get to ride again, even if only for short rides. A short ride is better than no ride! Keep the wind at your back and the shiny side UP!

Hello everyone who reads my blog....LOL

I have a question.....does anyone know of anyplace you can still find those(oldfashioned)
cassette players??????????????????? Like a walkman or something???? I have a ton of
cassettes that I would love to listen to, on my little jaunts around the neighborhood,
and I looked at Walmart with no success. Mine broke and I can't seem to find one to
replace it with....

Before anyone says Ipod, I don't know how they work, nor do I know how you would
transfer cassette music to an ipod. I know there has to be someway of using the cassettes
so if anyone has a suggestion, SING OUT...........

Off to try to get my walk in before I get busy on other things.....

    Ya know, most new cell phones have mp3 players ect. in them, kill two birds with one stone, carry your cell while listening to music. Easy to download music from places like limewire. Your same songs !

What a lovely day

Sunday, November 08, 2009

Well, whatdya know..........it is 82 degrees here in Alabama. Gee, what a lovely
day. I wish we could go back up to the Little River Canyon and get some more
pictures. The leaves have finally turned in the past week to some beautiful Fall
hues.........would be a splendiferous day to take the bikes out. However, that is
not to be ....

This week has been a difficult one, diet wise. I am not happy with my non-progress
but, I am stubborn as heck, so I am not giving up, but going forward. Seems like my
emotions have tripped me up more than anything. However, I am not accepting any
excuses from me...................LOL............onward
............

    Good thing your stubborn and getting back on track...Love happens and it is hard sometimes to stay the course. Keep pushing through it you will win!

We did get for a bike ride it is nice out this weekend. Our leaves already turned and are almost done but still nice to get out and about. We had to go into my mother in laws to help her with a window (need the big ladder and I don't want her on it) Any hoo that is a little over an hour away and we took the bikes. Great ride beautiful day....clears my head. I had to stop and take off one of my jackets off and my gloves....LOL

Keep going sister you can push through this platue.
