On the spur of the moment from a comment.....

I found the following comment on the blog this morning...

"I guess I'll have to read that Lincoln book as I really like historical stuff like that."   

Which was left on the post by Rick....   It sort of surprised me since he had referred to  the author as a Wacko....

So I thought about it for about a moment and tossed the book into the motorcycle top case and took it to the Post Office..  Moments later it was on its way to Desert Hot Springs...........  I sent him an email giving him permission to tape over the authors name while he was reading it...  LOL

Loyce was mad at me for purchasing the book in the first place because she claims to have another copy back in Kansas so I told Rick to pass it along when he gets done.....  Have some fun Rick!!

And then when I came back home I noticed the lady post mistress over at the mail pedestal....  She was putting all the mail in the boxes...  And in my mind, I thought "you don't suppose?"

When she was gone, I was right over there to look in our box..... and Yep, You Guessed It......  Right in the middle of the color coupons and the bills for garbage service........  was a big brown envelope that didn't flex at all.....  the motor cycle license plate!!!!

So rail about something and the very next day you will be appeased!  Well not always...

This afternoon, I was out and about on the motorcycle and dropped thru the RV park where Jim and Sandie have their lot...  And low and behold they were there sitting outside in the warm Arizona sun....

We got carried away talking about everything under the sun....  The day slipped away when I was supposed to be out going to Wal Mart for some spaghetti sauce...  Then Loyce was mad at me for not taking her along if I was going over to the Dixon's...  Of course it was just a spur of the moment thing when I was riding up North of Apache Junction...

I thought about taking a picture of the neat Arizona license plate on the back of the black couch, but came to my senses that I shouldn't put the plate numbers on the internet.....  And blurring them seams a little weak, so you just have to take my word for it....

    1. Yes, Speedy, and proud to be a Liberal as well.

  2. Sure was good to see you yesterday. Tell Loyce that next time she will definitely be here or we'll both be mad at you.

  3. Thanks again for dropping that book in the email, Rod, I look forward to reading it.

    How about that? Your licence plate arrived right on schedule - sort of! I like the name 'black couch' for your bike.

  4. Loyce will have to get a helmet and start going along with you on your Arizona meanderings.

    1. JB, she doesn't hold motorcycles near and dear to her heart....! Maybe instrument of the devil would be a better description.....LOL
