Breast Cancer Awareness Ride

Last weekend (6 Oct), Mountain Shadow Riders (MSR) sponsored its annual Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Ride and I didn’t have a chance to post photos before I left on vacation. This year’s BCA Ride was a HUGE success, MSR donated $10,000 to Susan G. Komen Foundation! The first three photos are MSR ladies working registration, t-shirt sales and raffle ticket sales.

Uplifting Occasion

This is another one of those stamps that I’ve had for some time. The stamp is Uplifting Occasion by Penny Black, I always liked the little kitty just hanging around relaxing.

I’ve been seeing these really big scalloped borders in the galleries, apparently the scalloped are made with a punch. I’ve been searching all the local craft stores for a scalloped border punch… no luck. Finally I realized that I had a Coluzzle scalloped border that I could use, and I happy with it.

Stamps: Uplifting Occasion (Penny Black) ~ Paper: White, Romance, Rosebud (all Bazzill), White ~ Ink: Noir (Palette) ~ Other: White Daisy Flower (CTMH), Prima Flower, Silver Brad, Coluzzle Scalloped Border, Stardust Gelly Pen (Sakura), Pebble Chalk, Prismacolor Pencils blended with Baby Oil

A little break...

Riley and Austin are on their two week fall break, we spent the last week in Illinois visiting grandparents and family. We usually have a hectic visit trying to see everyone around work and school schedules, this time we took it easy and had a relaxing visit. This coming week we’re taking a trip to Wyoming to visit my parents.

We did have a chance to visit the St. Louis Zoo. It was a perfect zoo day, about 67 outside and no crowds. Here are a few pictures of some of my favorite zoo animals.

I just added some photos of the Breast Cancer Awareness Ride to my other blog, check it out if you have a chance. Tomorrow I’ll have a card to share. Thanks for reading.

I’m tired of being jerked around!

A couple weeks ago I took my bike in for service and they made some adjustments. I’ve been spending the last couple of weeks trying to get use to the adjustments made to the throttle. When I was in first or second the bike felt really jerky when I rolled on and off the throttle. It just didn’t seem right. Bryan took my bike for a spin and he didn’t notice anything different… probably because he rarely drives it. After trying to get comfortable with the throttle for the past two weeks I finally said that was it… I was tired of being jerked around! I did some searching over at HD Forums to see if I was just me or if something was wrong. After reading the posts I was convinced that the throttle cable needed tightening. So I called HD Service this morning and they said “Bring it in and we can have it fixed for you in 5 minutes”. I took it in, they adjusted it and I was out in less than 5 minutes… and the best part I wasn’t being jerked around on the ride home.
