Complaint of the Day: People who send me like 20 "Fwd" joke/junk messages, one after the other. I don't really like forwards, but I deal with a few of them. I just think this is ridiculous though, one or two? Maybe... 20 in a row, torture. You're just begging me to "block" you.
There goes another one!! Geez... get a life!
Well, work is going to be steady and kind of hectic for the next few weeks, so much going on and an office relocation (not sure of exact date on that). I dread it though, I know change is imminent, it usually has the flavor of stale brew (hard to swallow). I guess every change has its pros and cons, but I always seem to experience changes that make everything harder to enjoy. Right now, the work flow and environment is just fine, and I wish we could keep it that way. I like the location, and the way we are set up. Anything disturbing all this is only going to cause me grief. Oh well, right?
In lieu of my Motorcycle Madness, the weekend was quite enjoyable. Saturday's post had a little blurb about our riding, and our trip to see my Mom and Dad. When we came back, I took Richie through the lake and scenic route home. It was very nice. However, once we went around the spillway, I spotted a huge swarm of dragonflies, which I was dreading a bit. I am not afraid of Dragonflies, actually, I love dragonflies. But going through them on my bike didn't seem like a fun plan. They remained high in the air, though, and I didn't see a swarm like that the rest of the way home. We stopped in at a gas station and topped off our gas tanks on the highway, and met up with another Biker of sorts (his name was Jackie too! Funny, I thought). It seems every where you go someone wants to talk about the motorcycles. "Like that paint job!" and "Cool lookin ride", along with "Mine's a 2001 Shadow 750". It's really cool, it brings a common ground to greet new faces, and low-five each other along the road, knowing you're part of something interesting... I just like that, sorry... I'm rambling on.
The windshields... as soon as we can get them that will be a plus, I guess. Richie has stated he doesn't want to go on any more long rides until he gets a windshield. Doesn't bother me that badly, although I think the Windshield might help out on the Interstates or something.
There is a quote I have seen and heard amongst motorcycle lovers, and it goes like this: "Only a biker knows why a dog hangs its head out the window." I've quoted that several times, to Mr. J's dismay. LOL! He just says, "Why do you keep repeating that?!?" and I just laugh and reply, "Because I thought it was a cool quote, and it's really true."
I, myself just cannot forgo the ride even though the wind might give me a run for my money. It's just too much fun. The wind smells so great. You will catch a delicious whiff of cook-out or campfire smoke, which I have always loved dearly, you smell the summer flowers, honeysuckle, and such. It's just the scent of the wind and the sense of freedom while you're out there enjoying the great outdoors. Occasionally, you will hit a stench, but it's not enough to deter me.
So yesterday (Sunday), I took off all by myself, and went down a favorite back road of mine, turned, hit the highway slightly, made a little trip, came back and parked. Then I had to run to Target and pick up a few things, which I had to do in my car since I have no room to store anything like that. I thought I was done, but before supper, I had to jump on Jimi and take one last ride of the weekend... I guess I'm addicted huh.
Guess that is about all I have to yammer on about today, as it is Monday and I have to get at least some work done.
Tomorrow is a WWC Day. I am not even sure of the words for this week as I have had my head in the clouds of motorcycle exhaust. Will it die down? I don't know for sure, all I know is that I am enjoying it and trying to work more every day towards appreciating every moment, and just having fun.
How was your weekend??
