The last couple of days, I have been installing a larger window(double crank-out) in the side wall of my attached garage. People always show up for visits.
Yesterday, I had a visit from a guy riding a fairly new Triumph Bonniville. He may also be looking for a touring bike, so he brought his wife back to sit on my 1500, which is still not sold--they liked the look and feel of the big tourer.
Then my neighbour came over and invited us to a birthday BBQ that he was throwing for his mother's 70th birthday. The old dear is almost as old as me.
To my surprise, she arrived on the back of a strange looking motorcycle, which turned out to be a Moto Guzzi of 1982 vintage. It was a nice looking bike and sounded sweet. Italian, the guy told me.
BTW--the menu consisted of: hot wings(for me) german sausage(sliced and served with several kinds of hot mustards), Digby scallops wrapped in bacon, pork tenderloin medallions(bacon wrapped) beef tenderloins (bacon wrapped), sirloin steakettes done with some special pub receipy sauce(hmmmm), baked potato, fresh garden salad, and enought lobster for two each(if you could eat them) All washed down with plenty of beer and wine.
Finished up with a slice of B'day cake.
And YES, I ate way too much------but it was a great evening.
The B'day girl departed the way she arrived, on the back of the Moto Guzzi with a handful of floating balloons trailing behind.
Shuda had a camera.
