I created this blog because someone much younger than me encouraged me to do it; it took me a couple weeks to take that step. So to say that I am a greenhorn is an understatement. I am older and wiser, or at least that’s what they tell me LOL! I have been married for 31 + years and have two great kids. Well they aren’t really kids anymore but they will always be my kids; pretty much anyone younger than me are kids! Ha Ha I love Books, Riding my motorcycle and crocheting just to name a few things.

Books: What I love about books? Without stating the obvious (the stories) but if a book could talk and tell us what its seen and experienced…can you just imagine?¬† The oldest book I have is 116 years old; can you imagine the things its seen and the people its come in contact with? Ok, so then there is that old book smell! when I walk into a library the first thing I do is sniff the air, then I look for the oldest books I can find so I can see what they are about.

Motorcycle: I never thought in a million years I would ever drive my own motorcycle. But one thing led to another and here I am. Last year for our 30th anniversary and my 50th birthday I got a Harley Davidson Switchback. I named it Aengus and over this last year I have added accessories lol because that’s what you do! LOL Those that ride know what I mean. You may have already read my blog on our recent 2800 mile vacay on the motorcycles. Riding is one of the most liberating and amazing experiences I have ever had.

Yarn: I have been crocheting since I was a kid. My mom and grandmother showed me how to do some of the basics. then life got in the way and only in the last 2 years have I picked it back up. It all started because one of my nephews was having a baby and then a friend wanted to start a Facebook group for crocheting. So I have done several baby blankies and have the pictures to prove it ha ha, and have participated in several Charity crochet projects. One of which I blogged about; our little group sent over 100 newborn baby hats to Oklahoma.

If you have any comments, suggestions or questions please do not hesitate to contact me; I am totally shooting from the hip on this one. If you haven’t picked up on it yet, I love using old clich√© phrases; just ask my kids!
