« on: February 26, 2008, 11:17:41 PM »
He has called from Blythe Az. Sandberg NM, Lordsberg Tx  ( or was it Lordsberg NM & Sandberg Tx )...tonight they are in San Antonio Tx...He says riding thought Tx has been tough...he is heading toward Louisiana...maybe he'll ride by some bee folk, I told him to wave HIYA if he saw any hives...

What do you mean Texas is tough? Just cause you can't cross it in one day?

LOL, that's right, I think he said it would take 3 days to cross Texas!  Oh and that was Sanderson Tx...not "Sandberg"...oops.

He gets to do it all again on his way back, haha

Sharon, good for your Hubby, that is a long ride, hope he padded his butt, hee, hee.  Have the most beautiful and awesome of these days, Cindi

the calling is a guy thing.  it gets worse as they get older.  my husband is gone a lot.  we pay for higher end cell service because he calls endlessly.  i thought it was just him, but i checked with some of my friends and their husbands do the same.  we think it's be cause we all have been married so long and our husbands just want to "reach out and touch" us from time to time during the day.  kind of a reality check.

it drives me nuts sometimes, but i remind myself that i am fortunate to have a husband who still wants to communicate after all these years.  and, to tell the truth, i'd miss it if he didn't do it!

what brought on your husbands trip?  something he always wanted to do?
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

My DH has always been a motorcycle aficionado.   I bought him his first Harley some years ago...he of course had to travel to Sturgis.  He has been there I think 3 times.  He usually goes on road trips 3-4 times a year. This particular trip was the dream of one of he fellow riders.  These guys are all firefighters of various rank. In 2000 I bought him a Heritage Soft tail classic to makes the rides more comfortable.  He is also a member of Wind & Fire MC, firefighters with Harleys...each year they host the big rally in Hollister Ca...

Indeed I should be grateful he even cares to call..he'll have to face reality when he gets back home, I picked up our tax forms yesterday...we'll have to pay over $10,000. in taxes...sheesh...

OK I have to chime in. When I go some where my wife knows she might not hear from me for a long time. I don't like talking on the phone. I really don't like cell phones. So as long as everything is fine she isn't gonna hear from me.

If he's been to Sturgis he needs to come to Anacortes for the Oyster Run, which no longer involves oysters because the event got too large.  The town is full of every type of motorcycle you can imagine as well as an antique motorcycle and car show.

Sharon, what a ride.  A true bike buff, eh?  You say YOU bought him the bikes, what's with that?  hee, hee.  Did he have a choice?  Sounds like he is rather homesicky, poor dude, but that is a good thing.

My Husband has a 04 Harley Fatboy, souped up really nice by our Son-in-Laws, I don't think another thing could be done to change it for any better, they fix his bike in secret.  They borrow it for a few days and it comes back new and improved, how they want it to be, oh brother.

My intention this spring is to get a Nightster, made by Harley.  We have one on order for April, hopefully it gets here, I wanted a specific colour and it doesn't come in til then.  I have rode bikes in my younger days, I just need some really good refreshing and always drove without a licence (bad girl, in my bad girl days), so I have to get my license now.  I am older, and much more responsible.  Spring is coming, I need to get my act in gear and head down to the motor vehicle office.  Have a wonderful, beautiful and awesome day, love our life.  Cindi
