When Harley and I spent some time up at Lake Martin this past summer, we had the opportunity to see a beautiful rainbow that touched the ground from one side to the other. We stood there for a moment and enjoyed the awesome view and tried to think if we had ever seen that before.

This Pic of the Week fits my mood right now. It's been a bit of a rough year for my family and I, and I'm very glad to say goodbye to 2010. For me, this full arch rainbow represents a fresh start and new beginnings. You know... that place where "troubles melt like lemon drops... and happy little blue birds fly."

My Christmas has been good, but a little bittersweet. Even though we're all missing my Dad, as we experience our first Christmas without him, I have been enjoying the company of my awesome mom who escaped the snow in Iowa to spend a southern holiday with Harley and I. Now, I feel so energized by her presence and love, I feel like I can tackle 2011 with a renewed attitude. I resolve to change any habits that need changing and continue to live my life to the fullest. And yes... there's motorcycles involved!

Yep, this is a good year to get rid of. Just remember to write the correct date on your checks next week ;)

Hi Lady R’s mom! Glad you got to get out of that nasty white stuff for a while. Burr!

Webster... Yepper... my mom is good medicine for me. I realize I've been dragging my feet about several things. Time to get off my ass and put that spring back in my step!

Eve... Thank you friend... and the same to you!

B.B... I hope so too. Happy New Year to you and Dave! My your life continue to be one pleasant surprise after another!

Mr. M... we did, and I will! I've been visiting your blog, just not always taking the time to comment. That is another one of my resolutions. Quit lurking! Hope your son and his band had a great concert. That is totally cool!
BTW... your tatt post... was awesome!

Willy D... We'll kick 2010 to the curb together, heh? BTW... those banks don't give a rip what you put on your checks... one time, no signature... still went through. Go figure!
Mom says Hi back and she's not missing the snow... at all! Happy New Year my friend!

Irondad... I hope the weather Gods are good to you this year. Here in the hot sunny south, we have to be careful what we wish for! Happy New Year!

There is a saying: "No rain, No rainbows". Hopefully seeing the rainbows is the end to the rain you had last year. Wishing you the best in 2011.

KT... same to you my friend!
