Gah blogspot is making me crazy

I don't know about anyone else but I am having problems posting on some of your blogs.  I get the comments written and then when it comes to word verification it locks up and won't take the comment.  I have given up a few times trying to post because after several attempts it still won't take it.  So it you haven't gotten any comments from me that is what's happening.  I almost threw my iPad and then phone against the wall because of the frustration factor.  Uggggh!

FOR BOBSKOOT - to make you smile

My blogger friend Bob loves pink crocs and they are his signature shoe. 
I came across this today and couldn't help but post. 
I'm sorry Bob this made me chuckle and thought you might get a little laugh out of this as well.
It was too funny not to share.

Blustery day

It would appear that winter is not quite done with us yet.  This morning I woke up at 5:30am and the wind was howling and the rain was blowing sideways. Oh  joy, something to look forward to while walking a relucant freezing baby Shih Tzu who was not suitably impressed about being woken up from her slumber in a cozy lovely little doggis bed to go out in the the abyss.  She definitely was not impressed with me and kept looking up at me as if to say "Really?!"  As Winnie The Pooh would say "What a blustery day!"

Warm hands = a warm heart

The other day I received a wee present from a good friend. It was a motorcycle present and they are the best kinds of presents! BUT the greatest gift of all is friendship and it is the most precious gift of all.

Bob sent me a lovely set of heated grips for Miss Scarlet. Thank you Bob, I am so grateful that my hands will be warm! More importantly I am blessed to have you as a friend and all the folks I have met through scooting and motorcycling.

Ho Hum

I seem to have a case of PMS (parked motorcycle syndrome) and its side effect called the Ho Hums.  The weather has warmed up and I venture to guess spring is well on its way here to the Island, I am requiring less layers when I walk the doggis and it's staying light until after 6:00pm .  Miss Scarlet has been parked almost two weeks because I decided to wait a little to reinsure her, which in the end is crazy, because I rode her all through the wet rainy crap of winter.  Lately I have been taking the tin can to work and plugging into the iphone world and just enjoying the fact that I actually have fluffy curly hair when I get to work.  BUT all of the hair fluff factor is NOT taking away from my missing my sweet lovely Scarlet.  This weekend it was fairly mild and even a little sunny and all I could think of was going out to the garage and climbing on and going for an adventure, then I got a case of the "Meh's" and stuck to my decision to wait it out a little longer.  It's funny because I haven't meandered out to the garage to look at Scarlet or the scooter since I parked her at the beginning of February.  Motorcycle Man being the awesome moto protector had all three out of the motor lair on Sunday and started them all and gave them a little TLC.   I am finding my scooter crash injury has been acting up and probably putting a crimp into my riding desire.  I am thinking towards the beginning or middle of March reinsuring and getting back on the road again, I hope I can wait that long. If we get a good stretch of sunny weather I may be out there sooner.

In the meantime I stopped by one of the local motorcycle shops and spied this precious beauty.

Spring is here - well maybe

Just a few pics from my ramblings today. It was brilliantly sunny and quite mild.

Insurance blues $$

So here I sit in my office staring out the window looking at some watery sunshine and thinking 'do I or don't I?' Insurance on Scarlet expired on Sunday and I decided that I would try and make it through the short month of February by walking or taking the bus to and from work in an effort to make paying insurance a little more doable instead of it hitting right after Christmas when of course I am paying off my contribution to boost consumer confidence by spending my hard earned cashola at Christmas. 

The groundhog has said we are in for an early spring (not that I put much stock in rodents.  I don't know about you guys, but if I was a groundhog I would be pretty snarked at the dude who pulled me out of my burrow and flinging me about looking for my shadow to show or not.) I knew we were getting spring before he did, because our winter has been mild and blossoms & blooms are coming up everywhere.  Our temps are warming up and past February's have been pretty chilly.  This of course may be a fake out by Mother Nature or maybe not, particularly after the crappy summer she gave us last year. 

So what say you moto peeps?  Do I stick it out or should I buzz out and get insurance?  After all there is a long weekend coming up and I am seeing a little bit of sunny skies in the forecast.  Hmmm what to do?

Evening walk

I finally took a fairly decent of the elusive heron that lives around the waterfront where I walk the dog. Spring is in the air!
