Merry Christmas Everyone! Oh my gosh, Spyder, I've been thinking about you & wondering how you are!!! I hardly ever post here anymore on BK since I let my membership go last June. I'm over at two other sites now with friends from BK. I still have your e-address, if you haven't changed it since the last time we would talk. I would love to send a note your way & give you my number so we can talk sometime again. Do you still have my e-address? I can't send you a note through BK since I'm no longer a paying member. I hope life is treating you well! Hugs...
What a shame for this thread to be lost in the bottom of the old threads....
It's so sad to see this one die.
I have to tell ya Dyna, I found some of that italian dark decaf stuff. I can't wait to try it. I just found it today while I was pickin up some of my Double Dark.
OK... I'M CALLIN YA'LL BACK TO THIS COFFEE BREAK !!!!!!!
Good Happy Monday Morning Everyone!! Hope everyone had a great weekend cuz I sure did! Yeppers...Went on a great date on Friday, went to the WI H-D street dance Saturday night in Oconomowoc & hung out with friends, & on Sunday I went riding with these same friends from Saturday night. Weather was perfect this weekend here in WI~sunshine & high 70's. Life is good...
FINALLY got back to walking at 5:15 AM with my g/f. Yep...been slackin the both of us. Felt good to get out there again! My broken toe still doesn't feel the best being confined in a shoe, but I'm dealing with it.
Hey Dyna? You are so very welcome for your birthday greeting :)
Hey Lil? We're gonna have to give each other a call again one of these days...been to dang long g/f!
Have a beautiful day today & hope something brings a smile to your face & into your heart...
lil_ride write: Smiles... you're slackin in the Birthday department!!!!!
Happy Birthday Dyna!
Nah ah Lil!! I'm no longer a paying member so my post doesn't show until the next day! Do you see that my post for July 20th is wishing Dyna a happy birthday? And? I also sent Dyna an e-card wishing him a happy birthday! So there! But if you're meaning starting a Happy Birthday thread personally...yeppers...then I am slipping in that dept. lately...But I did post it here in the Morning Coffee which is our favorite thread! Doesn't that count?
Love you both! Hugs...

that's right lil....the caged rock... people come from all over the world to see plymouth rock and you weren't impressed... How about the Mayflower? that was cool right??
OK back to work....see ya's
Good Morning Everyone & welcome back Dyna & Lil!! Happy Birthday Dyna!!!! Hugs...Man...have I missed you guys!! Glad to hear you had such a great time! I knew you would though...isn't it just breathtaking out East, Lil? I have fond memories from my vacation out there...We took the Amtrak from Milwaukee to New London, CT & then rented a car & traveled around to different states from there. I loved Newport, RI & doing the Cliff Walk. My brother was stationed in Newport when I was a kid. He was in the Navy for 6 years. He suggested that I do the Cliff Walk while out there & I'm so glad I did! I also loved Bar Harbor, Maine & going whale watching. Camden, Maine is a beautiful & quaint town. The sand dunes in Provincetown, Mass. on Longnook Beach were awesome! Loved eating all the seafood & man are those Lobsters huge! Sigh...everywhere we went out East brings back many fond memories...You're fortunate to live out there Dyna...but I'm sure you already know that! You guys just get sucky winters like we do though in WI :(
Not too many people come around here anymore on the threads...but I'm still hanging in there...Why? Because of the friends who still pop in here & there to say hi...friends like the two of you.
Love you guys...
Back in MN. havin some extra strong double dark...
What a trip! Dyna, ya pretty much covered it, except Sat. we went to Plymouth to see the caged rock, remember?
And, you're right. The falls at night especially from above on the Canadian side, was breath taking. What an experience! I wouldn't have missed it or who I shared it with for anything!
For everyone who didn't plan or couldn't fit this trip into they're summer events. It's too bad you didn't. For me it was such an incredible trip. I've never spent any time in the North Eastern U.S. I've sure missed a lot. What a beautiful part of this country it is. I've come back so enriched. Really, there are no words for the experience, and all that's been shared in such a short amount of time.
There's no doubt I'll be heading in that direction every chance I get. Oh, and Dyna, I hope ya can handle it ok. hehe...
I don't know what's next on the agenda. I haven't been in the threads much in some time. I guess I'm gonna have to get in here and do a lil homework. Find out what all ya'll have goin for the rest of the summer.
I miss some of ya that haven't been poppin in as much as you used to, but am always happy to see ya when ya do.
I hope everyone's gettin out and enjoyin the few summer months we do get.
Good Morning All,
Home brewed coffee on the Cape this week. This is why I am stayin'
lil ride came to the Cape from Twin Cities last Friday.. we went to a family wedding here in Falmouth..you think we got drama here on BK?? HA!
You should see when south boston irish meet east boston italians...sheesh. Actually we don't seem to have much drama left here..hmmmm.
Saturday we did some Cape stuff..course I may forget some of the places we went.
Sunday it was off to Newport Rhode Island for lunch.. watched the kite people flying their's... and lil got soaked in the Atlantic.. Monday we rode the bike to New London CT and took the cross island ferry to Long Island..I had to work on Tuesday AM in Melville.
After work we jumped on the Dyna and headed to Canada..Niagra Falls.
Our room overlooked the Canada Falls...have you seen the falls at nite? AWESOME...
Wed we headed to Goat Island in the USA where we went to the Cave of the Winds..
I stood under the falls and got soaked.. wicked!
Thursday we rode to Famous Lockport and took an underground boat ride at the Erie Canal... we stopped at Smokin Joes so lil could get in touch with her roots...
Friday morning we left Niagara Falls to meet up with the Finger Lakes Crew.. They took us to Springer Mike's..
Mike opened his home to us to all say hello and have a drink... some of us have never met... THANKS MIKE!
Mike then led us on a ride thru the lakes.. GOOD ROADS AND GREAT COMPANY!
After the ride we all went back to Watkins Glen for a 3 hour dinner cruise on the lake.. VTwin and Frank showed up just in time...The cruise was a great idea by Gina! Get this... there was no dancing! Skinsfan and I were OK with that..but DekkerDave and Geotrk wanted to get up and boogie..and AJ flyin up beside our cruise in a small boat was a hit!
Saturday Kelly arrived from her adventure on the road, we met in the morning and AJ led us on another ride. Bill, Cheryl, Kat, Vicky, Michele and Lee..alloyouz
why I stay
Good Morning Everyone...whoever may be here?? Hey Grnidwitch! Nice to see you here once in awhile popping in. Miss seeing ya. Yep, things sure are different here on BK compared to back in the good ole days. I'm no longer a paying member either so it takes my posts awhile to show. Oh wait...it was taking them awhile to post even when I was a paying member...lol Friends have found a few different places to go to around here, Grnidwitch. They may pop in on BK every once in awhile, but they have found friendlier places to go to now. One of the places was started by one of our members here, stillme67. He started a place called hiwaysingles. A lot of peeps from BK are over there. The other place that alot of peeps have gone is harleychatgroup. I'm at both of those places & enjoy both of them :) Maybe come over there sometime & check it out? Also, just wondering, Grnidwitch...are you planning on going to Doc's or Char's parties? I know we had talked about it briefly awhile back on one of the threads.
Hope everyone has an awesome weekend! Tonight I'm heading to Knuckleheads to see a band, The Dirty Boogie Band. I'm friends with one of the guys in the band. Saturday I'm getting together with both of my ya ya sisters for a summer pool party & sleepover. I've been friends with both for over 24 years.
It's also suppose to be in the 90's this weekend here.
Take care my friends...
Good Morning Everyone! Nice to see you here Prettyldy! Glad to hear you're doing ok & enjoying life :) Hey LilRide & Dyna...been thinking about you two & just a smiling because I know you guys are just having an awesome time!
I FINALLY walked this morning with my gf. First time I've had an actual shoe on since 7/2 when I either badly sprained or broke my toe. Lets just say the walk didn't go well having the pressure on that toe. I'm thankful that I've been able to wear sandals! It was a beautiful morning tho for a walk! They're talking storms later on today & 75*.
Hope everyone has an awesome day today & something brings a smile to your heart...
Good Morning Friends & Happy Monday to all of you...
I believe in the power of prayer & am reaching out to all of you to please keep my neighbor, Mary, in your prayers. She's going in for surgery today at 2 PM & then will be in the hospital for a few days. She's a bit nervous going in. In fact, she went & had some papers made up that in the event that something would happen that she doesn't want to be put on life support & she asked me if I would be one that would sign these 4 batches of papers along with her family members. She just recently has found out at age 50 that she has a birth defect & has a build up of fluid in her spinal chord because of something with her brain. The way she explained it to me is like she has this plug on her brain that isn't allowing things to be happening the way they should be. She also for quite awhile hasn't been able to make a closed fist with her hands like we can & the doctor said she may never be able to even after the surgery. She has been dealing with headaches a lot lately & just hasn't been feeling good whatsoever & unable to sleep. Actually, she hasn't been feeling all the greatest for many years & has gone to numerous doctors but none of them had found this until she switched to my doctor & then he had her go see a neurologist also. From what it sounds like, she has been misdiagnosed all these years for other things & has been on medications that she really didn't need to be on either. I wish I could explain this better with what she's going through but it's hard to explain...
I asked if she wanted me to be there during her surgery but her husband said there's going to be a lot of family members there so he didn't want me to take off of work. I'll go up to the hospital right after work then & hopefully she'll be out of surgery by then & in her regular room.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart...
Good Morning here from Jersey again. Weather has broke and looking good, its been beautiful out. Supposed to rain some more this week....ughhhh. Anybody else want some of this rain??? We needa let our rivers recede some before we get anymore rain...sheeesh.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. Our township does 4th of July a week late and calls it "Patriotic Day". Which works out kind of nice cuz alot of the bands come to our parade and they get cheaper fireworks so we have a great show, so was a good weekend, got to do 4th of July again on Saturday and my lil sis' 5th birthday party was that day also......she's just a dollbaby.
I do have to say whoever decided we need to work 5 and have off 2 was an idiot as I would love to be out and about today...lol. Gotta do motor vehicle, I bought my son a car and couldn't make it legal cuz our state was "shut down". My kid was spazzing. Lol.
Hope yall have a great day and also rest of the week. Hope some riding is in the near future for me, guess gotta see how the weather holds up.
Ride safe and free everyone......love to all from New Jersey.
