The darling buds of spring!!!!

This is the Bradford pear just outside my front blooms yet but the buds are popping!

"Doc" and I buzzed to another large, small town about an hour away to bike shop yesterday afternoon. The sun was shining bright and we were on a mission to find another hobby!

The landscape down and back was just pretty flat, brown and listless so.... I took no pictures along the way.

We went to Harley's Bike Shop located in this lovely older building to order bikes.
Our newest toys!

I love the arches and even the painted bricks.

This is not the bike we ordered but it is similiar, no basket,different brakes, different fenders and different color. Actually, I guess the bike we ordered is nothing like this bike but I needed to take a picture of something.

We both ordered "Giant" bikes, gray for him and (wait for it)...purple for me. Okay, just a little purple trim on silver metallic. My 8th birthday present from my Grandpa and Grandma was a silver bike with purple trim! I'm walking of sunshine!

We said goodbye to Harley's and headed home to have dinner with friends....

Two of my favorite things are eating out and laughing with friends. Last night I got to do both!

Me and Johnny Mike

SonMarie Sunshine's favorite father-in-law and, of course, me!
"I'm checking your blog first thing in the morning to see if my picture will really be there."

"Doc's" partner Dr. B and her husband and me...I'm sensing a pattern here.

"Dr. M, PhD", the other "Doc" in my life, her husband, "The Gentleman Farmer",
yet again, me!

My bf J-- and her husband with, wait, can you guess?!

"Doc" and Suzy-Q with me butting in!

Finally a picture without JamJar!
...or could that possibly be her shoulder in the background?

Thank you Suzy Q for taking the pictures. My old camera has been pressed into service again but we work with what we have!

What I ate at my B-day dinner!
1/2 ribeye steak
salad with drsg
baked potatoe with butter
appetizer of fried green beans, onion rings and southwest eggroll
triple chocolate mousse
and some drinks (2) that weren't diet!
You wouldn't want me to lie, would you?

But this A.M. I am back on program and hopefully I'll be able to report back to you that I stayed on "the wagon" all day today and beyond!

It's cold, wet and bleak today but there's a pot roast in the crockpot and I bet if I begged really hard I could talk "Doc" into starting a fire in the the fireplace before we settle in to cheer on the Wildcats!
Yes, you heard correctly, we are "going for" KSU now! Oh, Sweet Marmalade! ain't life grand?!?


  1. Hello! I had posted earlier, but someone came to the door before I could submit. Anyway! I was saying that so many times we are on the same wavelength and this time it seems to be musically speaking! "Forever young" is one of my alltime favorites, it was my G-pa's song to me! Now it reminds me of my PBKISSERS. And "Jump" is Dakster and RBob's FAVORITE. So Funny! LOVE IT!

  2. You are quite the social butterfly. :)
    Looks like a great birthday for you.
    Enjoy your Sunday.


  3. Looks like you had a wonderful birthday celebration!


Hello...Thanks for taking the time to comment. Opening a comment is akin to receiving a gift...I'm always excited and usually pleased! Oh, Sweet Marmalade! Remember that line "Life is like a box of chocolates"? Well, sometimes comments are like that, never know what I'll get but always sweet of you to bother. Here's to the sweet life!
