Don & Carol showed up at the house at about 8:00 a.m. this morning.  Carol's a real trooper.  She worked till late last night then gets up at 5:00 a.m. to ride to Elk Grove and be there by 8 am.  Then rides all day long today and no whinning or complaining.....just sucks it up and goes with the flow.  She's got my respect! :2vrolijk_21:

Here's our little Maltese Molly, as we were getting ready to go.  Just to early in the morning for her to even wake up...



Don & Carol both wired to one controller :huepfenlol2:




And we're off for another weekend of covered bridges tour.  And our first bridge on the list today.......just a few miles from the house but it is on the list....

and Andy wasn't able to join us this week, but we thought about him as we passed the Indian casinos.....





Finally, breakfast at Thomi's in Jackson....





Where we met the most interesting family!  He rides a Sporster 1200 and his daughter has a Sporster as well.   The thing that I was really fascinated about is that they crused to Alaska five times in their 26' Sea Ray Sundancer.....the whole family! :o

Soon we roll on to Murphy.  The whole damn town was walking the streets totally buzzed.  It is the Murphy's Wine Weekend and everybody goes from wine tasting to wine tasting with their glasses in their hand.  It was just really odd...and damn funny.

This guy drives up and down the street all day, playing his trumpet.  He's been doing this the last few years that we've gone to Murphy.  He's actually pretty good at it, too.  Can't imagine what he spends in gas at $4.48 a gallon.


Ironstone Vinyards.......the last place Terrie and I saw Buddey Guy and BB King together.  It's about the nicest out door venue we've ever been to.
