What it’s like to be broke down in the heat!

Posted by Dawn on June 16, 2006

I didn't want to stop and get gas yesterday morning, so I brought Patt's car to work.  It's a stick shift, no problem with that until it breaks and I can't change gears, in the middle of traffic and it's 95 degree's outside.  Oh and I can't get in touch with him, he's still at work and can't hear his phone, my brother is already home with is about an hour from where I am.  No problem I think.  I'll call Patt's sister who works a whole 1 1/2 miles from where I'm on the side of the road.  Oh but she had a problem with picking me up though……..

Welcom “K”

Posted by Dawn on June 13, 2006

So excited to share some really wonderful news with my friends. Our friend Christy just sent me a message that their little boy "K" has made his arrival. All I know now is 7 lbs and 20 inches. They are both resting now and as soon as she feels like company I'm off to the hospital. It's just down the road from my office. I knew I should have brought my camera today!

So the group has a new member!!! And he made just in time for his mom's birthday Friday!

Guilty because you ride a blue and white motorcyle???

Posted by Dawn on June 12, 2006

Thanks for all the well wishes! I'm still alive! Feeling better, but I still don't have all my energy back. I did what I needed to do over the weekend and that was rest. I fought it at first. My new helmet was suppose to be in Friday (now it'll be Wednesday) and I wanted to ride this weekend. Insteed Friday night I took my meds and slept. Got up early Saturday (thanks new neighbors to be) went ahead and went to the grocery store. Came home and pretty much was lazy. During energy spurts I'd do a few things needed to be done, but pretty much took it easy. Sunday went to church had a lunch fund raiser for our youth then I was surpised, the group was going to some race track and Patt decided not to go, instead we went to the movies! Alone just the two of us. Nice surpise to spend the afternoon with Patt!

Now the real fun was what happened to Patt Saturday afternoon has now made me loose faith in our police officers. I can't have repect for somone who treated Patt the way he did. Saturday Patt and 2 other guys were riding. They were downtown, no cutting up, not spending. It is well know to be on your very best behavior in this town and Patt has been told after two tickets he'd better be good or else! The are going down a street and a police office passes them, turns around and follows them for a little while. No problem they were not doing anything wrong or so they thought. He finally stops them, then calls Patt to the back away from the other guys and this is what happened.

Officer: Why did you out run me?

Patt: I didn't out run you. When was this?

Officer: About a month ago on a rainny night.

Patt: Sir, I don't ride my bike in the rain.

Officer: Then who did you lend your bike to?

Patt: I don't lend my bike to anyone it wasn't me. I'm not the only one with a blue and white bike.

Officer: (get's ticket book out)

Patt: Why are you giving me a ticket?

Officer: Your tag is improperly displayed.

Patt: Can I go home and fix it. I've been stopped before and no one has said anything about my tag.

Officer: Don't get an attitude with me.

Patt: I'm not, but you already had me guilty when you pulled me over. I didn't out run you. I've got my endorsement, have insurance, tag in date, can't you give me a break.

Officer: I'm about you throw you in jail, then you'll have to bond out, get your bike out and still pay for the ticket.

(By now Patt does have an attitude I think)

Officer: (Gives Patt the ticket) there's a number on there if you have any questions.

Patt: I'll call and ask them if I have this taken care of will they let the ticket go.

Officer: (takes ticket back and writes NO HELP on it)

The officer now goes to our friend who's bike is out of state since last August, tag placed just like Patt's, no endoresement, and no insurance. Gives him a ticket only for the tag and endoresment and tells him in front of Patt if he gets the two things fix he'll tear the ticket up.

By now Patt just gets on his bike and leaves.

Ok my husband can be a pain in the rear end, a jerk at times, but one thing he does not do and that's lie. He's gotton two tickets one for going 68 in a 55 which on a bike is slow…..and one for doing a wheelie in town. He did it got to pay the ticket, but to get a ticket because the officer assumed he out ran him because a guy on a blue and white bike did. Wrong!

Back several, several months ago I'm on the cell phone talking to my mom and see this guy coming up and I tell mom, there's Patt, what's he doing in town. I swear this is Patt, then he gets beside me and it's NOT Patt. Now if his own wife can't tell for sure how can a cope on a dark, rainny night. Now I can tell Patt, he's the only one with a jacket like he has. But not then.

Ok it's Monday off to get some work done!

While trying to decide what to do for red, white and blue, I was looking through some pictures and trying to decide and saw this one. They are wearing all colors in their outfits. My nephew Hunter and my sweetie Patt. We were taking picutres all the January's birthday people on with each month and it got to their month and Hunter was like, cool Uncle Patt and I have the same birthday. They don't but we can't get him to understand it, so we'll just pretend since he's all excited about them having the same birtday.

My poor yard, at least we are in the country!

I'm thankful that we live in a country that we have the freedom to do crazy stuff like we do. We have the freedom to make our choices, live our lives, and be FREE! Thank you to all the veterns thoses who have fought and thoses that will fight so that we may be free to live our life the way we want to. To have the freedom to choose our religion, our jobs, who we marry, everything. I sometimes forget what our country has gone through to be free. Thank You!

God Bless All of Us!
