Texas Hiatus

Hubby and I are on a much needed two week ... or more ... vacation to the Texas Hill Country. Thought I'd warn ya so you won't think I fell off the face of the earth when I become suddenly ... silent. (Hey, stop applauding out there!)



The doggies are in a loving kennel, the house is in Lock Down mode, the trailer is loaded with food, two motorcycles and various accessories.

We are good to go.

I do plan to keep visiting y'alls blogs of the evenings after long motorcycle rides on those lovely Texas roads. All the hotels we plan to stay at have wireless internet access, except some hoity-toity joint we'll be at in Vanderpool. I'm like Jerry Clower with his TV access. Dang, people, even the Super 8 has internet but not the Vanderpool place that cost about 4 times more! Geez. Well, hubby wants to spend three nights there because the wild bird watching is suppose to be spectacular. It's located on 56 pristine acres with a seven bedroom lodge (we'll have it all to ourselves ... no peeking). It'd had better be worth it, though, to watch me go through withdrawls of the evening from not having my computer hooked up!

HA!

One place we are definately going to visit again is the Sister's Creek Winery in Sisterdale. This time I plan on bringing back two cases of Muscat Canelli that are all mine!! Mine, mine, MINE!! Hubby can bring back his own case or cases as the, um, case may be. Good thing we're taking the trailer, is all I can say. Bwwaahhaa!

We're meeting some motorcycling friends, old and new, in the Hill Country. And we're also hoping to get to meet Pappy and wife Bebe face-to-face for the first time.

So, we should have loads of fun and oodles of exploits to tell you about upon our return.


Well, catchya on the flip flop good buddies!!

Ride safe sweet sparky! That sounds so exciting! You've given me the itch t hop on a motorcycle! My stepdad promised that I could toot around on his this summer when I visit the parental units!

Have you seen the old movie "The Long Long Trailer"? At least you aren't planning on collecting rocks. Have a good time.

Mildred said...

Happy trails!

Marie ~ Pls share photos of your riding experience. But don't try to ride in a wedding gown. That could be disasterous. :o) Yipes!

Lanny ~ YES! I've seen "The Long Long Trailer" many times. Very funny movie. Lucille Ball is one of my fav actresses. You know, there is room on MC trailer for extra weight ... NO! NO rocks! ha ha

Mildred ~ Thanks for the happy thoughts.

God bless y'all! ♥ ∞

D.K. and Janeen ~ We'll take lots of pictures! Stay stunned sports fans. Wahoo! :o)

Linda ~ We would LOVE to stop by! And supper is at (insert time here). tee hee Dang it, we'll be in the southern part of Alabama. Maybe when we go to the Barber Motorsport in Birmingham later this year. I'll bet The Boy would love watching a MC race.

God bless y'all.

Hah! Saw the Long Long Trailer note - that was a funny movie! Have a spectacular and safe trip Sparky! Looking forward to pics along the way.
I had a busy week and didn't get out much to play in blogland - I just saw your Sparky Look Alike on your side bar. What a hoot!

Ahhh, that sounds wonderful! There's nothing like checking the internet after a full day of "vacationing". Have a wonderful time, and I can't wait to read/see what you did when you return!

Come on over. I think we've gotten rid of most of the bad weather. I saw some blue bonnets on the roadside the other day. They should be looking good by the time you get here. Pappy

Sparky, aren't you blessed with a capital B to just get up and go. What fun! I hope you have a wonderful trip. The weather is up and down here so I hope you don't get caught up in rain or snow. Take care. Be careful!!!!

WingMaster said...

If I had "too much time on my hands", I'd hop on "Chesty" and join you! I am SO jealous. Have a great ride. Keep the rubber-side down and the shiney-side up!

Rosezilla said...

All RIGHT, a vacation!!! Is this for your 30th anniversary or just a practice run? I hope you have a wonderful, romantic, fun, refreshing, exciting, (insert adjective of choice here), vacation! See ya when ya get back.

JBA said...

I forgot to mention how amused I am by the dinosaur type thing at the top of the Stand By sign. It appears to be an Allosaurus, not that I know my extinct lizards. Just sayin.... !

nanatrish said...

How's your trip going? Can we get updates? Where are you, Sparky? What is happening out there in your world?

Sparky ♥ ∞ said...

WingMaster ~ Nah nah nah nah nah ... naw, just kiddin'. Wish y'all could join us. There's plenty of room. Texas Hill Country is motorcycle Heaven!! My Suzuki is performing like a champ too. I love this bike. No peg dragging through the tight turns. Ride safe.

Rosezilla ~ It's a practice fun ... I mean run. Thanks for the kind words. I need to pop over to your place and see what's happenin' too. :o)
