A TIME TO GRIEVE

Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. John:14

R. I. P. PAPA JMy dad passed away yesterday morning at home, surrounded by his loving family. My brother and I were able to get home, and as we gathered around him during his last moments, he knew we were all there with him. He even looked into my mom's eyes and told her it was time for him to go, and he loved her.

I will miss my dad very much, but I find comfort and peace knowing he was not alone. I will be offline for awhile so I can be with my family during this very difficult time.

PIC OF THE WEEK - IT'S PRESIDENT'S DAY!

Well... here I am on another Monday morning, trying to decide which pic out of my vast collection of photos am I going to post for today's choice. Hmmmmm.

Alabama got snow this weekend! So how about a really cool snow picture?

ALABAMA SNOW - 2010
That would be really unique, accept for the fact that 49 out of our 50 states ALL got snow this weekend. So whoop-dee- doo!!

Then... I thought a cute, warm and fuzzy animal picture would be nice, since my co-worker's little Sassy cat had a litter of 7 kittens during our big snow storm.

NEW KITTENS
Awwwwww.... how precious. But, then again, if it's not your beloved pet... who really cares, right?

Then it hit me! IT'S PRESIDENT'S DAY! I should honor our Commander in Chief during his special holiday. So I dug through my library of pics and found what I was looking for.

HAPPY PRESIDENT'S DAY!!
Need I say more??

If your lucky enough to have the day off... enjoy! Otherwise, have a great Monday and an even better week.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

The sweetheart holiday is upon us and I don't know about you, but I plan to have a nice quiet weekend with my Valentine of 30 years. Harley and I have shared some cool experiences and enjoyed many common interests throughout our years together, and I look forward to more of that to come.

The holidays usually make me generous, so I thought I'd share a little snipet of how we've managed to keep the zing in our zang. Check this out...

Red Hot Tango!

I hope you all have a great Valentine's Day and enjoy the weekend spending it with the sweetheart of your dreams. If not, maybe that little fat guy wielding a sharp weapon will find you and shoot your ass with his love arrow. Yikes!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!

PIC OF THE WEEK - FOLLOW THE WILD RED ROAD

With Valentines Day just around the corner, it's got me thinking... red. With hearts and roses everywhere I look, it reminds me of the rich bold color that lines our highways in the early spring with these blood red wild flowers.

FOLLOW THE WILD RED ROAD
With these gorgeous beauties showing you the way... it's easy to fall into a make believe fairy tale of your own. We were somewhere south of Autagaville, on Highway 82, but Oz could have been just around the corner.
"Follow the wild red road. Follow the wild red road. Follow... follow... follow... follow... follow the wild red road."
Dorothy had her yellow brick road... I've got my wild red road. I'll be happy with my own fairy tales, as long as I stay clear of the lions and tigers or bears... oh my.

Have a great week everybody!

PIC OF THE WEEK - HIDE AND SEEK

Many times while riding along our Alabama country roads, you'll see remnants of old shacks and barns that have been abandoned or just plain neglected. With time, kudzo, trees, and other vegetation grow up around these structures to the point that they appear to be playing a game of "hide and seek" with you.

HIDE AND SEEK
Obviously, they become more evident as the seasons change, but come summer time when the woods are lush with new green growth, you won't even notice these old shacks.

This one appears to be playing "peek a boo". This pic was taken during the summer, and if you were to ride by this place two weeks later, you probably wouldn't even see it. The kudzu grows so fast, it would be completely covered by then.

It's really been too cold to get out and ride and besides, I've spent all weekend diving through my files and paperwork trying to get ready for the tax man. Do you think I could pass one of these off as my place of residence so I can get a break from Uncle Sam? Pffffffft. Didn't think so.

Have a great week everybody!
