She’ll be coming ’round the Mountain……..

Slept in every so slightly this morning before caving into the desire not to wet the bed – and launched out like I knew what I was doing. I knew my Queen was still doing ‘her thing’, so I squeeze kneed around the bedroom making our bed and getting the shutters open for the day. About the time I finished up – I heard the sound [water pump kicking on] that told me my bride was done with her bathroom stuff……… my turn~!  All ‘that’ out of the way – we settled into a coff of cuppee and our normal morning routine. We may not be “that old” [yet] – but we definitely have our morning routine and God help any body or any thing that interrupts it~!  😉  Finally came time for me to load my stuff and head into town for another day of bouncing along our mountain top trials. We had enough down pours yesterday – I really expected all of our mud holes to be filled to the brim……. but ya know….. or better yet – wouldn’t ya know…… them dang mud holes never got a drop of those deluges……… so our tours were much ‘cleaner’ than I thought they would be. A lot of that depends on the rider though — and I had a couple of riders today that made sure they sprayed me as they went by……. ( as I was taking pictures)  that I was informed by my Queen…… the beat of my heart…… the breath in my lungs…. my very being for existence…… that I “smelled like Poo“. Dammit Emmit…….. she has said a lot of things to me…… but that was a cut just above the ankles. I have probably at some point….. mentioned….we have lots of “critters” that ‘do their business‘ in those big ole mud puddles….. some times…. it can be a smidge…… just a smidge…… overwhelming…… Although MOST of the riders today opted to stay as clean and tidy as they could…….. a couple of them…… decided that the photographer standing at the side of the mud hole ankle deep in that mess to get ‘ that shot‘ – was well worth getting some of ‘that water’ on them while they doused my a$$ in that water (but I got ‘that shot’)……. National Geographic has nothing on this ole fat boy  😉

Two tours today and both of them were a ‘hoot’ — I’ll take those kind of tours ALL day long……. good people, pleasant, ask lots of fun questions… treated us and our machines with respect… tipped well…. Yes Ma’am~! I’ll take them all day long~!! Finally back in the yard……  I got ‘politely’ ushered out of the yard before getting drenched washing the bikes…… in all fairness though…. I didn’t argue “that” hard……… I came home to drinks being made by my Queen…… and as MUCH as I wanted to sit there and drink with her and cool off…… I managed to convince my tired old butt to get put and get the yard mowed…… That done…… LOTS more drinks being plied.. I boiled some hot dogs so I can maintain some kind of decorum while I try and finish this……… What a great day…… in my feeble OLD mind…. even though I wasn’t diving and chasing sharks…. the people… the day… the events….. just a fine day~! More trails tomorrow…..

Good Night Ya’ll ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) Thankx for stopping in~!

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
