Yesterday we went downtown for supper, yes, got out of cooking again. It was Awesome Biker Night. Used to be Awesome Harley Night, but they wanted to make it open for everyone on 2 wheels.
Usually I stay way clear of events like that. Straight pipes giving me a terrible headache, lawyers dressed up like big bad bikers for the day, leather leather leather. But I was in the mood for a good meal I didn't cook. The owner let us come in through the back door so we didn't have to pay and we sat outside on the patio and watched the goings on.
I saw a woman with boots up to her netherlands and a cut away dress like you only see in Fredrick's of Hollywood. It was funny watching all the "bikers" checking her out as she passed.
Saw enough beer guts to assure my job is safe for at least another 30 years. Saw young men acting stupid and old men acting stupid. What was it they were drinking in those blue bottles?
Saw the most awesome Indian motorcycle, yellow my favorite color. Saw 100's of people coming together in peace and having a good time. So it was fun. I enjoyed myself and I didn't have to cook. And more and more people are getting the hint that straight pipes suck and are unnecessarily noisy. Of course they say they want to be heard so they don't have people pull in front of them. I don't think that is the real reason, LOL. They want people to look at them. Plus it makes your bike run bad. Ever notice the difference in the way your car runs when you get a new muffler?
Today I am cleaning my MIL's house. I was there yesterday and can't stand how messy it is. My BIL is not a neat freak. My MIL was but can't do anything about it now. It is driving her nuts. Me too because I know how much she is hating it. So off I go, Mrs Clean, LOL.
