Black Friday – “The Morning After”…

It’s been a great holiday! Family & Friends came to visit, catch up a bit & eat!

The meal was followed by Football 🏈 and an epic nap! That’s a hat trick for an old man😊

Now, it’s a road trip for Black Friday! Wish us luck …

Y’all have a wonderful weekend!

Saturday ‘Road Song’

Everyone loves a good ‘Road Song’. A perfect song to get behind the wheel and set off to… I have always loved this old John Kilzer song! Since Johns untimely death, it’s now available on iTunes with that entire album! In my opinion, one of the best rock albums EVER!

This has always been one of my favorites off this album. John was an Awesome musician! May he Rest In Peace!

Here’s the song –

I’m gonna get out on the Highway today myself! Y’all have a great weekend!

PS: Take a few minutes and put together a “Road Song Playlist” – Then get out and take a ride around your beautiful area of the world and enjoy!😎

A Quick Anniversary Photo Tour

We had a great day off for our 26th. Wedding Anniversary! The weather was perfect 👌🏻 so we just made a day of riding around, eating out & Junking! Bought a few really nice old things (Junk to most 😊)… And finished the day off at our favorite marina with the perfect sunset 🌅. All in all, a perfect day! ❤️

 

This is my wife Jo & I 26 years in. We still Kickin’!

 

 

Here’s to 26 More! 🍾💥 ❤️

On the road again…

We spent another day riding the backroads & some main streets too  😊 I really enjoy doing things like this. Meeting local people, seeing the natural beauty of our own state, it’s very refreshing. Jo has been the pilot and I am the navigator with a map & an iPhone… Nothing and nowhere is safe 😂

Here are a few more pics from the road – 



From the road… Bumin’ around…

Ive got a pretty cool wife. When I asked her what she wanted to do for our 25th. Wedding Anniversary, she didn’t say what I expected. I figured a cruise or island trip or the like. No sir. She said why don’t we just mess around and take a slow trip around some cool spots in the state. Drive the back roads and see where they take us… WOW! That just hit the spot & sounded perfect! So that’s what we have been doing the last few days. I’m going to put a few pictures on here today and a few more tomorrow and so on and just see where else this road leads 😊

25 years and we still have fun doing things together. Here’s an exact 25 year before and after.

 

 

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
