Lifetime Ban from the Pirates of Emerson
Posted October 30, 2005

Well, my biker life continues...my Fremont H.O.G. group does this annual Haunted Hog Run on Halloween weekend, and this year was my first. One of our stops was the locally popular Pirates of Emerson haunted house. Now this is one where you are walking in almost pitch black conditions and guys are leaping out at you making you practically wet your pants. My husband has been teaching me martial arts for 2 years. In short, I popped a pirate in the face...

Our Loss and Gain
Posted July 23, 2005

This was a sad week for us...we lost Kimba to our busy road. She decided to get off the frontage road and venture out into the main thoroughfare...very sad. So, we now have a little orange guy. I've never had an orange cat before. The photo shows Oreo's acceptance after only 30 minutes of acquaintance. That's Oreo for you...

4th Of July Weekend
Posted July 5, 2005

Wow, what a time we had...there is this annual Freedom Rally in Hollister where, as my friend puts it, 100,000 Harley riders descend like locusts. It occurs on 4th of July weekend. Read about how George literally met 3 couples on the side of the road, befriended them, and we hung out the rest of the weekend...I think this was one of the more memorable 4th of July's I've experienced!

Born to be Wild (or something...)
Posted May 31, 2005

What a Memorial Day Weekend! We rode to my mom's which is about 60 miles away and I got my first taste of freeway speeds and gusty winds. We did get to go down some wonderful country roads and wound up leading a group of other riders which was fun. We did our safety class (Motorcycle Safety Foundation) last week and passed our test. We sure are having a lot of fun!

The Scooter? It Grew Up
Posted May 1, 2005

Never is an awfully long time. I may have thought about owning/riding a motorcycle in my youth but after losing some friends and family to motorcycle accidents, I said no way. Well, the scooter started it, and now I have a Harley Sportser 883. It is very powerful!

My new wheelsGas prices have gone waaaaaaay up...going over $2.50 a gallon nationwide, but in California in particular. Our Grand Am was in the shop for MAJOR engine work. For a few months I've been poking around with idea of getting something little an easy on gas to do little errands around town....I wound up with this little scooter....

Watch the Garden Grow
Posted March 6, 2005

Here in California, we are blessed with the ability to start our veggie gardens early. I've decided to log my garden this year, in geeky fashion.
