Thunder Road

I guess that summer has finally arrived, cause there are races on Thursday night at Thunder Road. Dean, John and I had a good night watching the races. Its also a good place to people watch. obviously  some people just should not reproduce. I spent the rest of the weekend working around the house, mowing and edging the lawn, cleaning up the fire pit and mowing the pastures. I'm ready to get this week over and start my vacation.

Bike Week

Sorry about missing a week in my posts. Thing have been kinda crazy with fixing a small rotting problem on the house. Work has been crazy, I've had 2 long weeks, and I don't see a end in sight. I was able to bring back one of the guys I layed off last fall. I felt good to bring him back, I have felt bad for having to do it, even though I no control over economic downturn. Now all we have to do is work hard and smart and hope that things continue to grow then I can fill the other 3 positions.

Cash and I have been home alone for the past week. The is kinda big without Georgie. I went over to Plymouth NH on Friday to see her. We went down to Wier's Beach to check out the doing at Bike Week. It a good place to people watch. On Saturday I went for a great bike ride to Meredith to check out the Harley dealership, then over to Conway the across the  Kancamagus to N.Woodstock and then down to Plymouth. It was fun to be around that many motorcycles. I had some great conversations each time I stopped. I left later in the afternoon for the 2 hour ride home.

Again happy fathers day to my Dad. It was nice to see my family for lunch, miss not having Joanne and Shelley but we were thinking of them. Lastly thank you Krista for the call, I can't tell you how special that was to me.

Problem Solved

So most of my home repairs usually start by me thinking I'll just replace that board. That will progress to just a couple more boards. Then at some point there after a chain and the tractor come from behind the barn. Then all you have to do is make a hole for the chain, hook it up to the tractor and pull. Problem solved.

Thunder Ride

Recovering today from the Vermont Thunder Ride. I ride to honor veterans. Chuck and I started at the Sharon rest area on I89. From there we went to Richmond, Essex, Milton, St Albans and finished up in Enosburgh Falls. There was a nice ceremony there with some guest speakers. From there the riders broke off and headed home. There was around 1500 motorcycles in the ride. It was lots of fun and a great honor
