               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.

Julie...your entry had to be scrolled so that I could read it.  Its very wide.
I am so cross with your BIL too.  How selfish can you get?  Poor Betty.   This is not the way thing should be for her during her last days.  I hope he keeps his hands off any more that are sent to make her happy.  He needs telling.  I loved your plants in the photo today.   Beautiful.  Hope your aches and pains are easing today?
The rain has stopped for now here in the North of England.  We have managed out for a walk at last!   But my batteries were flat in my camera......boohooo!     There was a lovely stand of foxgloves growing near a fallen tree that would have looked great to capture for posterity.  Next tiem.... Enjoy your weekend.   Jeanie

I used to love those get togethers. Last summer I went around and little ole me 5'1 , 110lbs. walked up to the biggest and the baddest of the bikers and guilted them all into coming out to a Biker fest for the S.O.S shelter. I did that for over a month and a half. Even Doc who plays these biker festivals from time to time said to me, Indigo you have balls LOL! What can I say it was for a good cause.

As for your BIL little ole me wants to come visit and personally kick his can to the side of the road. (Hugs) Indigo

OMG I laughed at your comment on the beer belly's. You are so funny Julie! I'm glad you had a good time.
I really could kick BIL in the A** for eating her candy!! OMG how RUDE he is. I'd make him go buy her another....oh wait, he'd be spending HER money to do it, right?? It's a no win. He needs to just GO!
Have a good weekend.
Hugs...Pam

I wish I could get my hands on your BIL, that was just plain greedy to eat the candy bought for her. I wish he'd go! You're an angel for doing Betty's house, she needs people like you around! I love the flower pics and the bird houses are cute. Have a great day! Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/
