Hello Everyone...well this is interesting...I posted a good morning here this morning, which of course didn't post right away even tho I'm a paying member yet until June 16th, & my post has totally disappeared when I went in to check another way to see if it had posted yet or not. Thanks BK. That was awfully kind of you to remove it.
Well anyways...I hope everyone has a great weekend & that you do something that makes your heart smile!
BAGHDAD, Iraq (June 8) - Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the al-Qaida leader in Iraq who waged a bloody campaign of suicide bombings and beheadings of hostages, has been killed in a precision airstrike, U.S. and Iraqi officials said Thursday. It was a long-sought victory in the war in Iraq.
Hey Kevin was this your homeboy?? Awww sorry bout yer luck.. Im just all busted up over this!!!
Good Morning Everyone! Well, today is 06/06/06. I didn't make a big deal out of the date but the radio announcers are. I just heard on the radio that a bunch of bikers (didn't hear from where) are planning a ride today to Hell, MI. I didn't even know there was a Hell, MI!
I just got in a bit ago from my morning walk - what a beautiful morning & what a breathtaking sunrise! I hear we're suppose to get some storms later - sure could fool me with how gorgeous it is outside!
I had a wonderful surprise on Sunday afternoon! I received a call from a friend saying he was in my area & asked if I'd like to go riding with him! What a gift & a nice way to end my Sunday! Thank you :)
~Hey Dyna~Chicago area for the next few days? You'll only be a few hours away from me!! Thanks for the hello :) Yep, I'm still hangin in. Membership is suppose to be done I think 6/15. No more "Gold Member" for me. I notice that my posts & others aren't posting on time still so why should I bother paying if I don't get that as a "perk"?
~Ponch~Awesome for the money raised for the Breast Cancer event last weekend! Glad to hear you had a good time! And you're so very welcome for my kind words...I always say what I mean & I spoke from my heart. Hugs..
~Prettyldy~You're so very welcome for the "welcome"! Boy did you bring back memories speaking about 8th grade graduation. My daughter is now 21 but I still remember those days...lol
~Kin~Good to see you popping in still over here! I have chosen to post here & also over at Bill's site. I love the people that post over here also that haven't moved over & I don't want to lose touch :)
Have a beautiful day everyone & hope you do something that makes your heart smile :)
Morning all..........ty to smile for the welcome...sure appreciate it hun. The Garden State (lmao) is a bit cloudy and cool today....had a great weekend tho. Managed to get my 14 yr old into a shirt and tie for his 8th grade graduation dance... (I'm sure you know this kid...."I'm not wearin that, I'll look like a dork, the tie is choking me, the shoes hurt my feet...mooooommmmmm" Lol. He did put it on and looked fabulous...finally. That was my adventure this weekend. Kinda wishing I had a bike this week, taking a trip to Tennessee to meet some friends and see Hank Williams Jr @ Riverfest this weekend. Hope everyone's weekend was fun.....and have a great Monday.
Good morning all Smiles thanks for the kind words. I wanted to update you on our Breast Cancer ride it was a great ride over 1000 bikes for the event this past weekend and it was awesome all toll we raised 1/4 of a million dollars for breast cancer so who said Bikers didn't like boobies? Have a great day and be safe
morning all that's left...
chicago for the next few days... well elk grove village and kankakee... home brewed dark eye-tallion roast this morning.. then off to the dealership for a 10K service for the dyna... we gotta be ready for laconia and finger lakes.. oh ya...
Hello Smiles... good to see you hangin in...
and prettyldy...maybe all jersey's not the same...but what about those yard sales?? is the state flag a yard sale sign???? I never seen so many... you must have a lot of stuff to sell....
and for all you blondes out there:
Guy gets on a plane and finds himself seated next to a cute blonde. He immediately turns to her and makes his move.
"You know," he says, "I've heard that flights will go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.
So let's talk."
The blonde, who had just opened her book, closes it slowly and says to the guy, "What would you like to discuss?"
"Oh, I don't know," says the guy, smiling. "How about nuclear power?"
"OK," says the blonde. "That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff -- grass. Yet the deer excretes little pellets, the cow turns out flat patty, and the horse produces muffins of dried poop. Why do you suppose that is?"
The guy is dumbfounded. Finally he replies, "I haven't the slightest idea."
"So tell me," says the blonde, "How is it that you feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don't know sh1t?"
Good Morning Everyone! Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weekend - it's sunshiney & in the 70's here in WI :) It's good to see friends stopping in here at Morning Coffee to share their day :) I'm just hanging around the house this weekend & getting some things done, which is a good thing! Hope everyone has a beautiful day today & that you do something that makes your heart smile!

~Ponch...aka BBD~Thank you for being involved in the breast cancer ride & fundraiser & with the amount of money you raised for this event! I'm glad I was able to help contribute for this fundraiser.

That would be fun K. But stay focused on the next upcoming event... For you.. VA.. Me? Startin to look like we all know..... hee hee
Talk about exciting!
Great morning here in the mid-west...
Just got back from a concert last night with Teri, my concert buddy. We went to see Blondie and the New Cars. Man, were the folks there old... Hard to believe I'm in that category. Home now getting ready for work and the bike ready for a PGR mission in the morning, early. Staging meets at 4:30am just south of the cities. I'll be leaving around 3:40 to be sure to be there in plenty of time. It should be interesting. This will be the first event to happen since this state passed a law that prevents anyone from interfearing in the privacy of a family to mourne peacfully. The opposing group is already there set up. We'll be there and so will the Gov. of the state.
Have a beautiful day. The suns shining here. Rained last night during part of the concert. It was still fun.
Morning from Jersey to yall....got a real pretty day today too....sposed to get some rain but its ok...we need it. Been doing buncha running around for kid's graduations...got 2 graduating 8th grade...its been fun actually...lol. Hope everyone has a great Friday and a great weekend!
