Thinking that I should listen to the grumblings of my tummy and get something to eat.

I'm finally tackling the wax stripping. The stuff works good, but I can only do 3' X 3' at a time. My back is starting to threaten so I'll try to wait until tomorrow to continue or else I could cause a problem that will last awhile.

It's hard to stop, but I know that if I stop now, I'll be fine for another round tomorrow.

You're supposed to put two hankies down your cleavage, so you can rummage and when you only find one you say, "I'm sure there were two of them."

Kicking back and relishing in the nearly 4 hour ride we took on the motorcycle this afternoon. The weather was beautiful so we took the opportunity to drive down to Tennessee to see what might be going on there.

The spring flowers/trees were magnificent. Color everywhere. Dogwoods, redbuds, wysteria, lilacs, daffodils, iris, creeping phlox, azaleas, and more. What a spectacular ride! I love how the dogwoods "light up" the woods.

We drove to Paris (TN) and had a yummy snack of pit barbecue and some ice cream, went further out through a resort area called Paris Landing and, then, onto Murray, KY, which is about 20 miles from where we live. In short, we drove in a HUGE circle and saw, no doubt, at least 100 other bikers out enjoying the beautiful day.

What a lovely day spent on Old Blue:
