I have wanted a motorcycle since before Alison and I got married. It seems that everytime we are in a position to start thinking about it, some big expense comes up. On our way home from work the other day, Alison mentioned seeing something about a scooter dealer in town. I decided to seize the moment and pulled into the dealership to check it out. We found a couple that we liked and asked the salesman if we could take it for a ride. Unfortunately, the battery in the one we liked was dead so the salesman told us he would grab another one. Alison and I kept looking at scooters until we heard the whine of the little engine coming toward us. We turned around and saw the salesman bringing us a PINK yes PINK scooter.
I must admit, I was ready to turn around and leave, but Alison assured me it would be alright. So for the next twenty minutes, Alison 5'11" tall and I 6'2" tall drove around town on a 150 c.c. PINK scooter. The best part for me was having the Harley guys wave at us as they passed. Despite my encouragement, we have not bought a scooter or motorcycle (yet). But I assure you when we do it will not be PINK.
- Don’t miss the 210! It adds at LEAST an hour!
- Lynetta and husband Jon are THE PERFECT hosts
- Trader Joe’s Trader Ming marinade is AWESOME!
- A barrier pillow can be a good thing.
- Val Kilmer is cuter in real life because he sits on the beach and watches thru binoculars as his son surfs
- Jose Villa is every bit as charming and warm as his photographs…more later!
- I miss my crazy like crazy when we’re apart
- I wanna rent a beach house and stay for a week. Who’s in?
Obviously, we painted. Everything! (Thanks, Barb & Lindsay)
New sink & counters
New fridge & stove
All new lighting. (Thanks, Bud!)
Opened up the ceiling (you can’t really see it…before there was recessed fluorescent with those ugly floppy plastic things. You can see a little of the new trim in front of the built in cupboards.)
Plastered over the cinder block wall (behind fridge & stove)
Things We Still Need to Do:
Cupboards. This is still undetermined. We have the doors and they’re almost finished with the off-white paint, but I really like it without doors. We’ve also talked about putting up some colored linen curtains so we can hide some things. Regardless, the large built-in WILL have doors on the bottom and will NOT have doors on top. What’s your vote?
Baseboards still need to be put in.
We’re still missing some receptacles.
The door to the bathroom is still the original ugly brown. We need to paint it. Ugh. (You can see it behind the fridge.)
Easter weekend we went out to the cabin to celebrate my good friend Kim's THIRTIETH birthday! We went out to Kodachrome State Park and finally got to drive the road that drives by the Cockscombs. Cool, but we'd heard so much about it that it was a little less exciting than we'd anticipated. We ate a lot of good food (nice call on the pineapple!), went on some good little hikes, made up some scary stories, (yeah, sorry, kim, totally made up my story! :), and had a lot of fun. All in all, another good weekend at the cabin... Thanks to Bud & Barb, and Happy Birthday, Kim! We hope you had a good birthday!!!
