Motorcycles & Spring Time

Hubby has been talking about buying a motorcycle for the past several years, the subject comes up right about this time of year, each and every year. With spring approaching in what will be in no time, the itch for going for a ride and enjoying life on the open road is so very tempting for the both of us.

I wouldn’t mind owning one one bit as long as it was a Harley Davidson and of course that is what is has in mind, not a new one mind you, but one that has low mileage and a low monthly payment would be nice. With the thought in mind that we should be getting a decent tax refund this year, we have been tossing around the idea of actually purchasing a Harley D.

Hubby has been surfing the net, looking to see what deals are out there and I have to tell you that there are some very tempting deals being offered. It seems that people are getting desperate for cash and motorcycles are being sold in an effort to pay the bills and the asking prices are very sweet indeed.

He has shown me a few of the ones that have caught his eye, there isn’t a shortage of bikes and bike parts for sale in this part of the state that we just may have to start checking out a bit more serious like in the near future.

Shipping info (Mexico)

Before Mom & Dad retired and moved to Florida, they had run a successful shipping business for years and from time to time I would work for them when needed, so I had an opportunity to learn a bit about the packaging and shipping business.

While surfing the Internet I somehow got linked up to a website for the company Logistics Group International and it sparked my interest.  It specializes in heavy haul transportation, Van, flatbed, stepdeck, double drop, removable gooseneck and specialized heavy haul trucking, they offer their services in Mexico which is why it caught my attention I guess.  When I worked for the folks there seemed to be an issue at times with getting things to Mexico, what with customs and all. This Mexico freight company seems to be the answer the that old dilemma.

It is a pretty cool site, nicely set up, with a nice Power Point to download that shows you a lot of interesting things.  I’ll have to mention it to Mom & Dad next time we chat.

Is Two Good Days In A Row Just Too Much To Ask For!

You would think that by now I would have learned to make sure that all the windows in all of the vehicles are rolled up at night whether or not the weather man has the word “rain” anywhere near to coming out of his mouth. I got to get a good amount of outside chores taken care of today and it about killed me by the time I finished getting things done and finished putting everything up and away.

As much as I was tired out, I was still in a good enough mood not to worry about the window situation. And knowing that the weather man didn’t say so much as a word about rain, I just got myself inside to a big, iced cold, glass of iced tea, a warm shower when I heard a huge rolling thunder headed our way and the car and truck windows were the last thing on my mind. Too bad that first thing this morning I sat down into a wet and mushy car seat. I do believe I don’t have to say anything else, am I right?

Willie Nelson and Marty Stuart’s Guitars

One of the people who come to mind instantly when you say anything about country music or the Grand Old Opry is Marty Stuart. He has been a performer for over 40 years – it wouldn’t take long to look up and find out, but I don’t see the need to at this point. I think you get my drift.

Trigger since 1969

Willie Nelson’s Guitar – Trigger

I remember reading that he left home at a very young age to come to Nashville and play guitar. He looks great and I love the suit he is wearing in this photo! He seems to have a variety of electric and acoustic guitars, like a epiphone pro-1 ultra that he has been seen performing with. Not like Willie Nelson who only plays his one and only acoustic guitar who he has called Trigger since he got it back in 1969, if my memory serves me correctly. Trigger seems to have an interesting story behind it. If you are into Willie Nelson at all – it is an entertaining story that can be found all over the Internet. I use Wikipedia a lot even though I have been warned time and time again about trusting what you read there. But honestly I don’t trust anything 100% of what I read or hear anyway.

Fixing a Lunch Buffet

Had no idea I was going to have a house full of kids today but I’m glad I took the rest of the week off to be with the kids. We were hoping to get away for a couple of days, but hubby is busy with work and the kids seem more interested in staying home so they can play with their friends, so that’s fine, too.

With all these girls at our house I decided to fix a Mexican buffet for their lunch. I  cooked a big batch of ground beef and set out all the different fixings for a taco bar. I put out chopped tomato, chopped onion, shredded lettuce, salsa, shredded cheese, sour cream and both hard taco shells and soft tortillas. Since I love avocados, I made some fresh guacamole and put it out with Doritos chips.

Now I can let them fix their own food and disappear upstairs for some peace and quiet.
