(a close-up of our contention)
well, john informed me last week that he was going to take a little trip on his motorcycle...
"are you going to ride the natchez trace?" i asked.
he looked at me a little puzzled and responded, "yes, how did you know?"
"well, mom said something to me about it," i said. "i was wondering when you were going to let me in on it."
(i knew he would wait til the last minute so that i wouldn't have time to do much objecting;)
"oh," he continued, " dale and i are going to leave on saturday morning; and i'll be back on tuesday."
at least he wasn't going by himself!!!
(an idea he'd recently vocalized)
now, i'm not really sure if he was ever really thinking about going by himself or if he just threw that idea out there so that when he told me he was going with dale i would think that him travelling with someone would be the better of the two ideas or not; but, it wouldn't surprise me, ha!!!
anyway, i didn't object...
but, i told him on thursday night that he needed a gel seat if he was going to be riding that great a distance and that it looked like hurricane fay was going to be affecting the area to which he and dale were heading.
"eh, we'll be ok, he replied, "and i don't need anything for my seat. i'm used to it now. it won't bother me."
saturday night: we made it!!! in one piece!!!
sunday night: ummm, i think we're going to head towards knoxville tomorrow because hurricane fay is not going to allow us to go down into louisianna. we were only able to bike about 75 miles today because of all the rain...
monday: well, we are in alabama. did you see all the tornado warnings out for here??? but, we're ok; you don't need to worry...
VROOOM, VROOOM, VROOOM...
i heard him pulling into the drive way last night.
i met him at the front door where he greeted me with a kiss.
then i turned around to follow him into the house. he was walking a little funny...

"i'm going to get me a different seat before i do THAT again," he announced.
WHEN WILL MY GUY EVER LEARN TO LISTEN TO ME???
i'll tell you when...
WHEN HELL FREEZES OVER!!!
bless his sore bum:b
love and blessings,
