A Victory Ride and other misc. stuff

We had a very fine day here in Ocala.

I was up very early - before 6:00 - despite the fact that I didn't get to bed until almost 2:00AM!
Yikes! I need more sleep than I'm getting these days...

You'd expect with getting to bed at that time that I might sleep a little later...but -NO! Things are working against me these days/nights-concerning my sleep!

Well- since I was up early I was able to catch another sunrise!

Even though I was tired , I was up and I was
reminded of the old saying..."If life gives you lemons - make lemonade!"
So my day would be a lemonade kinda day!

(LOL- Well-I see the logic in that in relation to my situation today -don't you?)

...AND-here comes the sun! Unfortunately, where we are, I can't see when/where the sun actually comes up, so I have to be content with the gradual lightening of the eastern sky! It's always a sight to see - each new day!

Anyway-my loss of sleep actually gave me 2 benefits which were quite meaningful to me...

#1 benefit:

The reason I was up so late was that I , once again, got into listening to a lot of the Remastered Beatles music on Youtube! These cds are superb and I get caught up with them! They are truly amazing!
(So-YES-the late hour of turning in was worth it!!)

Yep- Beatles just got better, folks!
(Here is one of my/our favorites!)

#2 benefit:

OK-Along with the sunrise,( which was enjoyable) being up early gave Charles and me the opportunity for a Victory ride. We've been looking forward to this cool, fall weather to go riding again! The weather today was just about perfect.

Here we are about to leave our place - around 8:30.

We went for breakfast, accompanied by another cup of coffee,
which was very good. After that we just started riding, with no destination in mind. We rode through some of the big ranch/farm areas.

The sign gives you an idea of how big the horse industry is in our area! These big farms are quite impressive to see!
( Charles and I often fantasize about winning the lottery and buying such a place as some of these farms!...lol-but in the meantime we try to be content with our own little spot!)

To me, there is no more desirable place to live, that I know of, than right where we are here in north Florida; and with our own modest little place! All things considered- this is where I wanna be!

That's a good thing- to be content with your own place in the big picture of your life; at least that's the way I see it!

Our country-side ride~

We came upon a neighborhood that was having a 'Neighborhood-wide Yard Sale'...which of course meant that a lot of the houses had stuff out to sell!

Oh, my! I had lots of fun looking and found a few things I wanted...well- more, actually, than we were able to carry on the motorcycle! In fact, Chas had to make a trip back to get some of the stuff that we bought! :)

Below see what I got!

The old radio shows I gave to my son but the music I kept for myself.
(The oldies and the classical) The horses I also gave to Chris, my son.

Oh- and I really love that vase with the autumn leaves on it!

How about this?

Is there a more perfect blouse for a girl named Junie Rose than this one? :) ... And the price was certainly right at just.....25 cents! LOL!!

Looks like some real finds on your ride. Not having visited a yard sale in years I find interest in what you got. Indeed the blouse is appropriate!

As you know, my own sleep patterns or lack of patterns are often frustrating. I should blog about some of the newer trends.

Hi AC,

Yes-I often think of you and your lack of sleep patterns! :) I know a few others who share this frustration of unpredictable sleep, too! Maybe we should start a 'Night Owl's club!'
