    Ok, just to let y'all know that we're still riding, here's some lake pictures from today's ride.

    Here's Serenity wearing the new leather saddle bags and tool bag.

    And a shot of Sheree swimming.

    That's the only ride for today, but pics are proof! :lol3

    Hoping it cools off some and you can get back out there!
    Was near Jacksonville last weekend -wish I'd know about Love's Lookout then. Went to Gladewater to see Elvis, Johnny, IMG_20210725_144634.jpg the museum, and the derricks for the Grand Tour of Texas thing.

    Hmm, I didn't realize that was on the Tour of Texas. I'll have to go find that in the next few weekends, thanks!

    Well, I didn't fall of the face of the Earth (yet). :lol3

    The docs have had me on some meds this year that have really drained my energy, but I took myself off of them, and hopefully I can get my adventuring mojo going again!

    I have been using the bike for running errands and stuff, but that's not very interdasting for y'all, so I don't really post pics.

    But, here's proof:

    Yep, Walmart parking lot in the MC parking area.


    I got some early birthday gifts from my son and my brother. :-)




    My brother gave me a new Sig Sauer Auto.

    Yeah, full auto! :D

    What, you expected the other kind? :lol3


    He gave me a couple of others, too.

    My son got this for me.

    Cold Steel Voyager XL.


    I like them all! :nod


    Anyway, that's all for today.

    Till next time y'all.

    Be careful or you will cut your finger off with a FULL AUTO! Keep pedaling, because the only other option is to push daisies and we don't want to do that.

    Here's a follow up on the Oldest House in Tyler.

    I went by there today.

    Surprisingly, it's still here!

    Last time, there was a sign out front talking about a zoning change, but it's gone now.
    Maybe it will be preserved? :dunno
    We'll see.


    That's all for now.

    Till next time y'all.

    I think I'm all caught up. Great to see you still out and about on the Sportster.

    I'm glad that you're still following along, even though I haven't posted much this year. I just let too much crap get in the way, but I'll try to do better! :D

    Last week, I took Serenity in for her yearly inspection, and she failed. They didn't like the exhaust.
    Today, I took her to a different shop, one that follows the guidelines, not opinion, and she passed without any problems.

    It was a hot (94ºF) 40 mile round trip, but at least I was riding! :ricky

    I’ve been banned much of the year. I’m just trying to connect with those I follow.

    Yeah, I missed seeing you around. I just thought that you may have been busy with life. Good to see you back. :thumb

    Nope. Just living a quiet life. It’s been a sunny, hot summer. Lots of fires. I’ve been relaxing on coffee patios not far from home.

    I took a little ride today to run to the store, and stopped by Sheree's job to visit. I had the drone with me, and played around with it a bit (crashed it a few times).

    On the way home, I saw this and took a couple of pics for the Heavy Equipment thread in the Photos section.

    It isn't very big, but it's definitely heavy! :D


    That was about all I really did today. I just had to get something for y'all though. I didn't want you to think I forgot about ya!
    I'll work on getting more. :thumb


    Till next time y'all.

    Too bad it hasn't gotten the same TLC as your Harley has gotten. :D
