Good Morning & Happy Friday & Weekend! Sunshine & 83 today here in WI!
I have a busy weekend if I so choose for it to be. Tonight my cousin's band is playing at Knuckleheads, which is a biker bar near me. Saturday there is a concert with different bands playing at this park for Alzheimer's Awareness & then there will be fireworks at dusk over by this lake. I also received an email from a guy friend who's in a band inviting me to see the band this weekend. This is also the last weekend for Milwaukee Summerfest. I sure do love Summer in WI :) Would be a beautiful weekend for riding too...
Grnidwitch...sure is good to see you pop in here every once in awhile...Miss you girl!
Nice to see everyone else that has been showing up here in MC lately too! Thank you!
Hope everyone has a beautiful weekend whatever you choose to do.

Cry hard, Laugh Loud Be humble, Stand Proud And don't be afraid of your fears Let love break your heart Just be who you are All of this All that there is I wish for you
You can never know which way your world will turn How the stars are gonna fall Salty tears they burn There are lessons you will learn But you'll be stronger for it all Oh, yes you will
Cry hard, Laugh Loud Be humble, Stand Proud Hold onto your faith with all your heart Be careful, Be brave Be still, but don't stay In any one place for too long Remember God's grace Give more than you take All of this All that there is I wish for you
Very nice Kara, Tell me you wrote that and I won
t be surprised!
Good Morning! Hope everyone had a safe, fun, & relaxing 4th of July. It was a beautiful day yesterday here in WI...sunshine & 80. Today it's suppose to be sunny & 78. Yesterday I did laundry & had 3 loads of clothes hanging outside on the line to dry. I just love being able to hang clothes out to dry. Nothing better, don't cha think? Did a few other things around the house. Then I decided to get my lounge chair out on the deck, got a snack table out & put it next to my chair, got a Coors Light & put it in a can cooler to keep it cool, & then just layed in the chair & soaked in the rays. Even took a lazy cat nap for a bit there. Life is good...I didn't get the chance to see any fireworks over the holiday weekend but heard all the booms all around me & had the gift of seeing fire flys putting on their light show for me again. I spent time with my neighbors last night on their deck which was nice. I also made a few calls to friends wishing them happy birthdays & shared conversation with other friends who called me. Again...life is good...
I haven't been taking my morning walks since last Friday. I had to cancel out walking again this morning with my walking partner because of my broken or sprained toe. Still hurting a bit & don't feel like putting pressure of a shoe on my foot. (Clutz here...) But you know...I'm sure if I was offered to go riding? I'd manage to deal with the pain of my riding boots. Some sacrifices a girl just has to make sometimes you know?
I hope you all have an awesome day today & that something brings a smile to your face & heart...

It's been awhile since I've been able to say that. I was startin to think this thread was gonna die out. What a sad thought. This has been my favorite thread since I first came to this site.

Everyone have an awesome 4th. Remember what it stands for... Independence! We're all fortunate to be living in this great country and have the freedoms we have.
I'm headin up to the lake for the holiday. Mon, I have a funeral, but all n all, it'll be a good weekend.

I had a 7 million plus virile load 4 months ago! After only two months of treatment it is gone! I will still have to finish the treament plan (another 8 months of having severe flu like symptoms...) but WTF .....

Hey SNJ...can't wait to see you again my friend..
Hello Smiles and Kin...and prtylady
back to work for a couple....
TGIF......to everybody! Got a beautiful day today in Jersey (FINALLY!) Now I see that they think they found Noah's Ark, I understand what all the rain is about and why the animals are starting to line up 2 by 2!
I have to send out a big old Woooohoooooo to treecutter......that's fantastic news man!!! My gf had done the same thing and spent 7 months on interferon treatments and it about made her crazy but she got thru it and is healthy now with no viril load! Good for you and keep on keepin' on....it'll be worth it!
Went to the Lynryd Skynryd concert at Atlantic City last weekend. It was taped for VH1 classics, the show called Decades of Rock, if any yall get a chance, check it out. It had to have been one of the best concerts I ever been to and I go to probably 2 or 3 a month! Was kinda weird they kept stopping for commercials cuz it was live on the TV but was awesome, nonetheless.....catch it if ya can.
I wanna say happy weekend to yall.....ride safe and be happy....
Plannin' on hitting the beach with the punks I got living at my house with me....lol oh yeah they're called kids. Yeah, them.
Maybe now the rain calmed down some us Jerseyans can ride some this weekend, we'll see, I spose.

Good Morning Everyone & Happy 4th of July weekend! Sure is quiet around here lately...Sure do miss a lot of you here...BK sure has changed...Good thing I'm seeing a lot of you in the other places though & that's a good thing!
I've been busy & enjoying life :) Still doing my morning walks. Putzing with home projects & gardening. Getting some riding in with friends :) As previously mentioned, had a great time at the Rally & made great memories! The cool thing also was finally meeting a guy friend at the Rally who I've been friends with for awhile from BK. We might get together sometime over the 4th of July weekend. Last weekend got together with another guy friend from BK & had a great evening together! I'm so thankful for all the great friends I have met here on BK...Went out to dinner last week with my daughter which was wonderful...She called me last Fri. with great news - she got an internship with a local rock radio station! She was so excited :) She won't be getting paid but this is a good way for her to get her foot in the door! She'll be working at different festivals, including Milwaukee Summerfest, so she's very excited! Sun. is HOG day at Summerfest. I may just head down to the festival that afternoon & soak in all the fun! Lots of bikers will be down there that day. I've been going to Summerfest since 1973 - wow! The largest music festival in the world :) I love summertime in WI :) I'm hoping to make it to Char's Labor Day weekend for her party - being able to see a lot of friends here from BK again & meeting new ones! How cool is that? :)
Hope everyone has a fun & safe 4th!
Love you guys!
Early Sat. Enjoyin some double dark and sharin the day with ya'll...
Bright and sunny now. the rain'll be rollin in soon, but should pass just as fast. Then it's off the the car show... "Back to the fifties" Biggest car show in the state. Covers the state fair grounds. CARS EVERYWHERE... It's an all weekend event but for me just for part of today. Later I'll headin to my nieces H.S. grad. open house. From there it's right to a wedding reception. The open house and wedding's at the same time. Funny how some weekends have so much goin on it's hard to fit it all in the day.
Hope ya'll are havin a great weekend. Stay busy, stay safe!
JJ~ Thanks, I usually do have fun around the family. There's always someone there to mess with.
Smiles~ I hope you had a good time at the ABATE rally last weekend... You could come tell us about it.. (hint hint)

~Prettyldy~You're welcome for always sending good wishes! And congrats with your 2 kiddos!! Proud moment for Mom :)
~LilRide~Thanks for checking that info out for me when you were out there. At least I know now...the news saddens me actually along with being upset still. I don't like being taken advantage of from an old "so called" friend...Hope to talk with you again soon gf!

Got together with 4 BK friends & met so many new friends too! Put on over 450 miles & the weather was awesome! And hey...riding on an ElectraGlide? My azz never even hurt! lol Very rough camping which I haven't done in quite a while. Forgot how boney these hips of mine are laying on the ground in a tent! I loved their setup for showers! Went to the bike blessing on Sat. & then we rode out to the Highground to Honor all Veterans, which was very emotional...& I loved the ride out there with all the bikes & all the Amish buggies out on the road also. Lots of cherished memories made this weekend...
Glad everyone had a great & safe time out at Cuts & many cherished memories made there also :) I was with all of you guys in spirit!
I feel like such a misfit here with so many friends scattered...thanks to those who still share in Morning Coffee. I love you guys...
