I never get a cop follow me all the way home - after all, I (used to) travel 2 states, 3 counties and about 13 towns between home and work. But still, a sheriff has followed me a good long ways and even though I'm not doing anything wrong (well, duh, not speeding with him behind me), I get all nervous.

Walking the Dog
Coming home the other day, I got behind someone out for a "stroll" with his dog. I know it is hard to see, but the dot to the left of the truck is a medium-large dog.
I remember when we used to exercise our huskies this way.

Map SharingThe Weekend Pundit has a great map that details the United States in a whole different way than what you are probably used to. No, it isn't politcal, so go look!

I wonder if WS and the neighbor saw this before they bought the backhoe - LOL

Thanks to Ruth for posting this. And by the way, while watching, turn on the speakers - the music goes well with the video!

Had to share this picture that a friend took from my FB page, did a minor touch-up, and re-posted to my timeline:
This picture was originally from our trip to Indiana.

Wrapping it Up
WS was wrapping a present for Jimmy. He had a whole long roll of wrapping paper and he measured out the sides of the box against the top and bottom edge of paper and satrted cutting.
I questioned "Really?"
"Who is wrapping this, me or you?" WS asked.
So he cut another piece to fill in the gap, and we had pretty much the same conversation ("Really?, "I'm just filling in the gap.", "OK"). Too bad I didn't get a good pic because that one filled in the gap at the top, but only covered the top so there was a gap at each side.
Yes, WS took 3 pieces of precisely cut wrapping paper to wrap a bunch of oil and oil filters for Jimmy's bike. I must admit that by the time he was done, it looked fine.

A New Twist on an Old Saw
Merry Christmas to all of the QOTR.
Twas the night before Christmas, and all throughthe pad,
There was nada happenin', now thats pretty bad.
The woodstove was hung up in that stocking routine,
In hopes that the Road King would soon make the scene.
With our stomachs packed with tacos and beer,
My guy and I crashed on the couch for some cheer.
When out in the yard there arose such a racket,
I ran for the door and pulled on my jacket.
I saw a large bro' on a '56 Pan
Wearin' black leathers, a cap, and boots (cool biker, man).
He hauled up the bars on that bikeful of sacks,
And that Pan hit the roof like it was running on tracks.
I couldn't help gawking, the old guy had class.
But I had to go in -- I was freezing my ass.
Down through the stovepipe he fell with a crash,
And out of the stove he came dragging his stash.
With a smile and some glee he passed out the loot,
A new jacket for him and some parts for my scoot.
He patted my fanny and shook my right hand,
Spun on his heel and up the stovepipe he ran.
From up on the roof came a great deal of thunder,
As that massive V-twin ripped the silence asunder.
With beard in the wind, he roared off in the night,
Shouting, "Have a Merry Christmas, and to all a good ride!"
