Our local Harley dealership Low Country Harley Davidson had the bike Ron test rode in Anderson, and tonight he traded in his Ultra for the Softail Slim S with a 110 engine, ABS brakes, security system and cruise control.
LOH meeting tonight was lots of fun at the Steel City Pizza place off Dorchester Road. Ron had the Calzone and said it was fabulous, I had the pizza, and fried Mozzarella.. both very good. Anna our server was attentive and pleasant. We'll be back there I'm sure of it. Tomorrow we go to Anderson SC for the SC State Hog rally, may be a few days before I'm able to post again.
I used D'Atramentis document black ink in a Lamy Safari Fountain pen to draw a quick study of the head of a Snowy Egret in the pond at the end of Faber Place tonight on our way to dinner. Caran D'Ache colored pencils to add the color. I like the effects some people get with colored pencils, not sure exactly how they do that, I just know it is way more time consuming than watercolor, so my lazy nature prefers watercolor.
Couldn't have worked out better if we'd tried, refund from the state, covers what we owe the Feds with $200 or so left over to spend anyway we want. Ron says he'll do them next year.... I may take him up on that as I always procrastinate until the last day. I hate doing the taxes, I'd rather scoop dog poop... just saying.
When I did yesterday's page I had no idea that I'd have a flower the very next day. All three rose bushes have been covered in buds for well over a week. Came home this evening after a trip to Atlanta Georgia today, and the first thing I noticed was a yellow rose... so Yellow bloomed first, Red and peach cannot be far behind.
I have 3 rose bushes, all competing for who will have the first rose to emerge. I'm thinking it will be the yellow roses, but the peach rosebud have looked ready to pop for a week now. I'll let you know who wins.
I have driving glasses, computer glasses, reading glasses... I pretty much have glasses for everything I need to do. They are all different colors so I can tell which pair I need without my glasses on.
The pollen just gets worse and worse, as does my reaction to it. Bad enough it covers my car and motorcycle, and it covers everything outside and inside. Itchy eyes and runny noses make pollen season miserable for me and even Gracie sneezes more now.
