Tomorrow is our last day here at Jefferson and Lake O’ The Pines ..We sure have had a great trip. Tomorrow will consist of stashing, stowing, jamming (no, not that kind), tearing down and cleaning up. Today was a wonderful sunny day,and I soaked up some of that so my dermatologist will have something to yell at me about. McGyver and I took a ride into Jefferson one last time. Actually, our ulterior motive was to stop at Auntie Skinners again. We heard they were having a motorcycle rally and wanted to be in on “the action”…We were NOT disappointed!!
DREAM ON , DENNIS..DREAM ON…
(WE STUCK OUT LIKE A SORE THUMB, NO HELMETS, NO DO- RAGS, NO LEATHERS…AND NO BIKE!!)
All the above photos were taken on the street in front of Auntie Skinners’ Riverboat Saloon…and ..of course we went inside for an adult beverage…That place was packed…It was wall to wall helmets, lots of food and beverages, and LOTS of women wearing some serious “bling”!!…We elbowed our way to the bar and had a couple cocktails. You could hardly get through this place, and we may have been the oldest ones in there..well..McGyver certainly was close!!
Last night we had yet another beautiful sunset….
….and I couldn’t believe my eyes this morning when I opened our shades….We had a Great Blue Heron cruising the shallows just down the hill…I crept outside quietly and he really could have cared less if I was there or not…
Either he has a bad “weave” or a bad attempt at a “comb over” going on with his “do”…Thanks, Mr. Heron, for making my morning!!
We got some very disturbing and sad news from our daughter, Terrie. You may remember that she and team of her friends “The Pink Lemon Ladies” are walking the Susan G. Komen walk for Breast Cancer this August..Well, Terrie told us that one of their “Pink Lemon Ladies” group, Toni Jovanovic O’Donovan, passed away suddenly in her sleep… She was 35 years young, and they still don’t know what happened. She leaves a husband and children.…This was a terrible blow to the team, and they are all just overcome with grief…Toni will be missed by many….
Our daughter, Terrie, left….and Toni on the right…Prayers to her family…Terrie posted the following on her Facebook page…and I think this says it all.
Dennis and I will be “incommunicado” from Sunday evening until we get home…Thursday…..Thanks for riding along and I will post from home soon….
