Went to the Wedding Saturday afternoon of one of the most precious friends a man could ever have... and it was good to see the smile back in her eyes.
|*Terry and David Price*|
Considering the smile that I saw, that David put in her eyes, it's a certainteed joyful future they've got ahead. Awesome!
It was good to see and visit with people I've not seen in quite a while, who all came out to celebrate Terry's day.
I can tell you, no one deserved that day more than that Lady. Shining Times... More than one tear shed, for sure and for certain.
The only "What the Hell" part were the texts we were getting through the evening... from our daughter... "Where are you?... Are you STILL partying?... I'm worried, you COULD BE IN A DITCH SOMEWHERE!"
Uh... it was 9 freaking Thirty!!!! :) ...
I'm a grumpy old geezer that's been in some nasty places, been takin' care of myself for some lil' while... and now I got a daughter tryin' to lay down THOSE rules?... I have to be "Home" by ten O'clock????!!!!! Huh? :) uh huh... right... luck with That!
Oh, is it SWEET to put THAT shoe on the other foot! :)
So... got up the yesterday morning to ride the Raider with Josh on the Custom Harley bob tail he's just finished. I got to be his gas station, carrying a couple "just in case" fuel bottles in my saddle bags. That '82 Sporty he's riding has an itty bitty fuel tank. :)

We took a break or two here and there, to give Josh's behind a respite from that Ol' Hardtail Harley :) ... and take in the view...
... which ... gave me the opportunity to capture the perspective of road kill... just before gettin' introduced to Goodyear!
:) What can I say? I can't just let everybody else be the ones doin' the silly stuff! I just wish I coulda captured HER EYES... when she rolled past! :) A bald headed cowboy biker was NOT what she was expecting to see 'round the bend!
Of course... Knowing it was HOT back down on the flat lands below... it just made good sense to stop for a bit, cool out and rehydrate... and in Idaho Springs is a lil' place that was just perfect to take care of that chore.
|*Cooling out in Idaho Springs*|
But we did have to come back down out of the cool mountains above Denver, to the Hot flatlands... and oooooffff... I'm ready to head back for Montana, and on to Butchardt Gardens even!
Which we'll be doing, some time Wednesday, I believe. Just a few chores to finish here along the front range and then it's back to pickin' 'em up... and puttin' 'em down. :)
Now... on to other things... I changed a setting, so that more posts show up on the blog home page... I've always had just two... I changed that to seven... any opinion or feed back on what ya'll like?
Another direction my heads goin'... and already has several times in the past, is Rigs. Readers here for a while probably understand that when it comes to Rigs/RV's I'm... uh ... "Restless"... Some might call it... fickle. Always lookin' at the "Greener" grass sitting on that Other set of Wheels. :)
Now, I don't think sayin' I'm fickle is fair. I've been draggin' this Eagle 'round for ten years! But... I have been and continue thinkin' 'bout Rigs that would work Better for us...
... and the direction I'm leaning just now, is likely to have the Artful Blogger slappin' his hands to his face in shock... and sputtering in surprise; "Oh No You Did-dunt!" :) I'm not gonna tell you what the crazy buster is up to, or might be... and it won't be happening in the short term... but... maybe this winter? :) gonna keep you in suspense!
I better go see if I can corral a few of my multiple personalities and get something else accomplished today...
Already Restless in Denver :)
