Harley & My Senses

bikeThe summer of 2017 has just started and will never be forgotten! Because it is my 1st time ever taken for a ride on a motorcycle, well 3 rides to date. And on what else but the infamous Harley Davidson. My man being a biker since his teen years and a true lover of the Harley has convinced me, if you want the ride of a lifetime, it has to be on a Harley! It doesn’t hurt to love the driver, either, 😉

He told me how my senses would be taking full notice of the sights, sounds and smells. Do they ever! I love it! The different smells of trees is so there, but so is the ugly smell of pollution at times. I learnt how the 1st ride would probably be a pain in the a**, lol but there is a powder that can help with some of that discomfort. I felt the pain that day, but haven’t since ride one.

I can’t say enough about my experience thus far, other than, magnificent!!.. after all, it is the closest I could get to riding a broom, eh. ..lol.. 🙂

I do hope you get to experience something different, that you never tried before, this coming summer. Life is too darn short, not to!

Watch for future posts of my senses alive on a Harley in the summer of 2017!

Summer Vacay!!

Sitting here sipping my 1st coffee, trying to think of a trip as a family we may have taken when I was a wee gal.. and my mind goes blank..because our parents didn’t spend that kind of money..they had 11 children! We were our own Disney Land, or circus freak show..lol..I think I will blame, things got tough when “they” came along, the 4 Little ones.. haha.. we couldnt afford to do anything then..lol..But I do recall being sent to bible camp 😦 when we lived in Elliot Lake. Joey, my brother a year older than I, was suppose to come with me, at the last minute he cried saying he didn’t want to go. Ohh I was mad. And Mom bought me 2 sets of pjs from Kresgees, flannel ones, to find they were too small when I went to wear a set my 1st night there. omg!!. And there was no such thing as cell phones. There was Emergency phone numbers on your application for the camp leaders only. So I was bored! but survived by tossing a big wad of bubble gum across the dark bedroom to land in the hair of the snotty blond girl in the bunk next to mine..I be bad.. she cried and the leader yelled out, who shot thid gum??!! I turned over and cried, because that was one of those moments I hated Mom for sending me away.. so I took my pencil I wrote on my bedsheet.. I hate you Mom!.. Didn’t matter, she wasn’t washing these sheets and wouldn’t see that..lol. I am not sure if my older brothers, Darcy, Geno or Joey went on any summer vacays or not. But at the end of the summer, we had memories, whether away from home or not. And now my children take their babes, my nuggets on summer vacays, making memories, as for toting along cell phones.. I wish everyone took one weekend away with their spouse and children..NO CELLS.. or electronics.. start listening to eachothers voices again, hear what they are really saying.. express like we use to do, with out loud belly laughs, screaming with laughter as you play tag, sing a song in the car as you motor along, introduce yourselves to the family in the camper parked next to yours at the campground.. go swimming! Just do stuff without the mechanics. Do you recall a vacay good or bad that you can share? Family or alone… as a child??
