For the 10 yrs I lived in Houston longing to
return to my home town of Baton Rouge,
I found myself enjoying the ride in my car
listening to INXS and various other artists
quite loud.


Id listen to all my music everyday and could
go to sleep playing every song in my mind and
singing along. It definitely soothed the restless,
irritable and discontent thoughts and emotions
I lived with day in and day out.


Today we mainly listen to 70's music in the
car and country in the morning with coffee.
When I log onto my laptop, I can go to facebook
and every now and then, an artist I have saved
or liked, comes on with a video someone is
sharing and I put on my earphones and jam
out with them.....like Chris Cornell a moment
ago.

It saddens me that he had passed on due to
his own addiction. Still, im thankful for all the
music many of these artists have left behind
for us to enjoy even tho they are long gone.


Seeing that wall of rock on a cold day listening
to some good music would definitely be a moment
to treasure and enjoy caring me thru the rest of
the day.

Thank you Phoenix for that pretty picture and
as always.....good to hear from you.

Here is the Sturgis website link below....

https://www.sturgismotorcyclerally.c...440.1533823136


Hello Bikers/riders in recovery.

Well....guess what time of the year it is? Yep, it is
the Sturgis Rally going on right now.

Anyone there or going this year?


sniffle sniffle.....I want to be there to ride amongst
all those bikes out there going up and down the hills, seeing
and hearing all the sights and sounds there.


How about you guys?

Hoping all are doing well out there today.

Even tho we wont be there this week coming, we
will be heading to Sturgis in a month or so for a Fall
trip to Yellowstone, but not before stopping in to see
Mount Rushmore one more time. I need a new coffee
cup from there.


Pop in anytime to say hello and let me know if you
all are doing okay out there, where ever you are.

What a lovely setting as you sit there admiring
that wonderful view and listening to 2 of my favorite
artists too. What's the tempts around there right
now?

We are in August and the last month of Summer
before heading to Fall. Now that's my favorite time
of the yrs with tempts lowering a bit and giving us
relief from the humidity that hangs with us constantly.

How are things with you?

Thank you friend for popping in and sharing
the view of the day with us. As always, you are
much appreciated.

Okay, y'all, since Sharon mentioned Sturgis, I have to mention that i was in Daytona a few weeks ago for the NASCAR race.

And I finally got to go to the Iron Horse Saloon for some tee-shirts I have wanted for many years.

My primary knowledge of the Iron Horse stems from my being a loyal, lifelong David Allan Coe fan and he plays there every night during bike week.

I bought 4 or 5 shirts, including one for a friend of mine who rides BMW'S.

We're both in our early 60's, so he doesn't exactly put his bones on the line running the Dragon in North Carolina near the Tennessee border.

The Iron Horse has a cartoonist with whom it contracts to prepare special graphic tee-shirts.

That person is an excellent cartoonist, even if the subject matter and illustrations are overtly political, rude and adult-oriented.

I don't buy or wear these tee-shirts, but they are funny to look at.

My wife tires of my bring home shirts from NASCAR races that I can't wear outside the home - you all know the type.

BTW, I don't ride and I have no desire to do so, but I sure like the bikes, especially the old Harleys, Indians and Triumphs.

Man, they're pretty and they are an integral part of the fabric of our heritage in the United States.

Oh cool sobercah….We were just talking about Daytona
and the few times we rode there on our Harley Road King,
once in Spring and once in October both for bike rallies.

We found in Spring staying in a hotel near the water
was still pretty chilly. I also remember when we were
returning home, riding thru an unexpected cold front,
how absolutely cold I was. Like numbing cold to the bones
and it taking forever to warm up between stops.

So we plowed on shivering, teeth chattering till
we made it home safe. After that ride, we decided to
attend octoberfest when it would be warmer. However,
when we went several yrs back, it was after one of those
hurricanes that did some extensive damage to Daytona.

When we got there, they passed lines of trucks convoying
to repair lines and such. Sooooo….we decided that Octoberfest
was to hot, muggy, and now knowing it, it wouldn't be the
best rally to attend during the yr.

Of course what I take away from riding on our bike
during that rally, was seeing the Daytona Speedway
and how massive it was when riding right in front
of it. Just huge and breath taking.

I'm glad you were able to pick up some of those
special t-shirts to add to your collection sobercah.


Also....to listen to your favorite David Allen Coe song
and see him in person ….priceless.

Here are a few DAC links to his music to remind me
of who he was......and now I know.

7C equals 44 degrees Fahrenheit, right?

Colder tempts always sound wonderful to us
about this time of the yr. because it is so humid
and hot.

Of course when it does get that cold here i'll
be thinking how the hot humid tempts would
thaw the chill right off our bones.

I took a 130 mile ride yesterday, caught some trout in a creek along the way and saw some pretty country, and met some very interesting people. It would have been a 260 mile ride, but my motorcycle stopped dead 1/2 and got a ride back home on a two truck. Ah well, such are the adventures of life!

It does sound like an adventurous ride and day
for you Astro. and then to catch you some Trout...
WOW.... Where would you have placed that trout
you caught when riding your bike back home?

In the saddle bags? Or storage box?

Well....I am glad to hear that you did make it home
safe and sound after your bike went caput on ya....

Were you able to load your bike on the truck
that brought you back home?

No riding on our bike here in Baton Rouge
with all this heat and humidity.

We will just have to wait for cooler weather
to venture out.

Then, my husband did something to his thigh
after attaching some new gutter covers the
other day and has made walking pretty painful.

He is able to drive and walk, but walking by using
a cane and leaning on the basket cart at the grocery
store. We are hoping he just pulled a muscle or bruised
a muscle by leaning and supporting himself on the
latter while hanging the gutter covers.

Anyway...… at his age, climbing up to do any kind
of repairs will soon be something he wont be able
to do anymore.

Well......at lease he can drive us in the car up to
Montana this Fall with me helping him if needed.
Something I couldn't do on our Harley.

Okay.....

I will share here with you guys that today is my
29th sobriety birthday, and for that I am grateful
and blessed with the help of the program of AA,
SR and my faith in the Lord above.

So many one days at a time sober added together to get
me where I am today and what I journey it has been
so far as I continue on with willingness, openmindedness
and honesty moving forward as a work in progress.

Thanks guys for being here for me. Much Appreciated.

Yep, they went on ice in a soft cooler stuffed in the saddle bags. I was worried the ice would melt and they'd go bad while I waited for the tow truck but the were still cold when I finally arrived home.

The bike is resting quietly in the garage until I can get up some $$ to have it looked at.

Can you imagine if this happened back in the
day before cell phones and any of our bikes
broke down in the middle of no where and
needing help?

We too have been broken down on the side
of the road several times....one on our trip to
Sturgis where we did use our cell phone to
call for a tow truck and getting our bike to
running to continue on the trip.

Then another time not far from home where
we could call a family member to bring us some
gas, cause we didnt realize how low we were
in the tank.

Anyway....

Things like that do happen from time to time
without notice. But with todays great technology
and to not take it for granted, we can use it to
our advantage and get out of those sticky situations
and continue on our journey in life....

enjoying fishing and riding sober. Good times..!!!!

Oh, and some good tasting Trout caught along
the way.

Oh man the dead bike thing sucks. I've been part of 3 dead bike rescues- at this point I have all the toys to load a bike onto the back of my pickup and a couple places in the backyard to work on folks bikes. Have another one coming in for some carb work in a cpl weeks- AA friend of mine. It seems to be a hobby now lol..

I got the AMA motorcycle roadside assistance, used it once when the rear bearing went out on my Bandit- towed me to a dealer. Happily they were near a train station so was able to ride the train a couple times which is a wonderful change from flying.
