Casino's , Harley-Davidson's and Chevrolets

For those of you who may not have gotten word, my bride, Shari, won a 2011 Harley-Davidson "FatBoy" motorcycle at the Isle of Capri Casino Halloween weekend. Not being bike fans, she looked at the bike and saw a car. Once the paperwork, taxes and etc were completed she sold it to a friend of ours who rides. Oddly enough it was almost to the penny of what our used Chevrolet Impala cost. We found a one owner, 2008 Impala, excellent condition and low miles so she is no longer a "biker momma" but a sedan owner.

It has been a wild few weeks here. Shari was scheduled for knee surgery the week after the motorcycle windfall but 24 hours before the surgery they took her off the schedule for some un-explained reason. They refunded our co-pay. The good news is that her knee is getting better and we visit our family doctor on Friday for more on that story.

I have been catching up on some chores around the house, getting the Workhorse brake recall done and will pick it up today from the shop in Pasadena TX. If you are in that area and need chassis work I recommend Monument Chevrolet which has a large truck center and they do a fantastic job. They are open until midnight and really do work that late. Amazing place.

We may dry camp at our favorite parking lot at Delta Downs Racetrack and Casino, Vinton LA this weekend since the temps are in the mid 50's at night and comfortable for this type of activity.

The barns are full of hay and Ray has sold all of the round bales he will let go this time of year saving the rest for his herd this winter. I am spending little time at the ranch, mostly to help catch up on maintenance items. I think I am done there for November and will see about December when it arrives. I am getting lots done around home and we do plan to take a couple of RV trips before the end of this year.

I hope everyone has a nice Thanksgiving and we will see you along the road.

Until next time.

How exciting to win a motorcycle!

A car is just so much safer

Congratulations, Shari.

What a great thing to win something that will buy you a new car.

I hope your knee is getting better for good.

Happy Trails, Penny, TX
