This is what we did:
Getting ready to ride!
( Charles and me by the new truck, but we went for a VICTORY ride!)
A WINDY ride today! LOL- good thing I'm not into fancy hair-dos!
We stopped and had a country-southern breakfast.
I had eggs, sausage, grits, and a biscuit and fried apples with cinnamon sticks!
The best of ALL was the GRITS! :)
We continued on to HERE:
Some things we saw...
Did Charles like those fancy purses- or what!!
Then, in the antique shop
next door I found THIS:
Blue Angels 1989-
Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, Ca
(framed and signed!)
I was not gonna leave without that framed poster
so I made a deal with C. to pay half the price and
he could pay half!
It was $50.00 total!
OK -I had to hold it (on the motorcycle)
the 40 plus miles back home - but I could do that!
I joked to Charles that if we crashed it would surely break!!
We made it safely home, in spite of my Tempting Fate!!
There's more!! While Charles was cleaning
the glass of the picture, he decided to take it all
out so as to clean the inside too! When he did this
we find ANOTHER signed poster! This one is 1988-
the Blue Angels flying over USS Lexington at Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fl.
(The HOME of The Blue Angels!)
It was such a coincidence, finding this framed picture,
since I have just recently become very interested in
the air shows of the Blue Angels around the country!
I was just last night reading about this!
Such a strange feeling, seeing that picture almost the first thing,
when I went in that store!
Isn't life strange?
I told Charles
"It's money well spent!"
He said, 'It's money 'Damn Sure' spent!"
LOL- but he's happy!!
(A GOOD DAY!!) :)
