85 MILES

IT SURE IS NICE TO HAVE THE SCOOTER BACK. I TOOK OFF TODAY TO RUN SOME ERRANDS.

FIRST STOP WAS THE EYE DOCTOR TO PICK UP MY NEW GLASSES.  SEEMS LAST WEEK WHEN I GOT UP ONE MORNING THE LENSE WAS MISSING ON ONE SIDE OF MY GLASSES.  I LOOKED ALL OVER FOR IT INCLUDING MY POCKETS, AND IN THE CAR WHERE IT MUST HAVE FALLEN OUT THE NITE BEFORE.

I EVEN HAD MARY SEARCH AND SHE THOUGHT OF A COUPLE OF OTHER PLACE TO LOOK AS WELL.  I HAD TO BE OUT AND ABOUT SO I STOPPED BY THE EYE DOCTOR AND MADE AN APPOINTMENT FOR THE NEXT DAY FOR AN EXAM AND NEW GLASSES.

WHEN I GOT HOME I WAS OUT ON THE PORCH READING MY KINDLE WITH AN OLD PAIR OF GLASSES AND REMEMBERED THAT WAS WHAT I WAS DOING JUST BEFORE I WENT TO BED. I GRABBED THE BROKEN GLASSES AND SLIPPED THEM ON TO TRY AND READ THE KINDLE, NO WAY!!

THAT MEANS “AZ” THE CAT HAS TO BE INVOLVED. I STARTED SEARCHING IN ALL HIS REGULAR HIDING PLACES LIKE UNDER THE THROW RUGS AND FOUND THE MISSING LENSE UNDER A KITCHEN STOOL.

DAMN CAT !!!

I HADN’T BOUGHT NEW GLASSES FOR SIX YEARS AND THE SCRIPT HAD CHANGED FOR ONE OF MY EYES SO I WENT AHEAD A GOT NEW GLASSES.

(END OF RANT)

NEXT STOP WAS NEEDLES, CA TO BUY MY MONTH’S WORTH OF LOTTO TICKETS, THEN ACROSS THE MOHAVE DESERT TO GOLDEN SHORE FOR .75 TACOS AT HOOCH’S. DOESN’T THIS PARKING LOT FULL OF QUADS REMIND YOU OF A TAVERN IN WISCONSIN FULL OF SNOWMOBILES?

85 004

(OPPS, FORGOT TO CHANGE THE WATERMARK, NO UNCLE HANS DIDN’T TAKE THE PHOTO.)

OLD ROUTE 66 PAST THE BOUNDRY CONE AND HOME THE BACK WAY FOR A TOTAL OF 85 MILES ON THE RED HONDA SCOOTER FOR TODAY, IT SURE IS NICE TO HAVE THE SCOOTER BACK!

Yup,,that's how it goes.. Ya get to branching out and driving all over on the bike and then next thing you think you want a bigger one... Silver wing or a Burgman.... Both of which will keep up with the traffic on any highway.. Glad your having so much fun, and your cat just thinks you need new glasses and was trying to help...LOL
