Catching Up!!

I know I haven't been around for a while & I'm upset with myself about that.  Since my last post in September, I've lost a friend to cancer and went with the kids to Daytona Beach for Biketoberfest.   
When Andy invited me to go to Homosassa Springs this summer, I was delighted to find that Michelle's mother would also be there.  She felt like a friend as soon as I met her and we hung together the entire w/e.  We made plans to get together often but those plans were never to be.  She started having some medical issues soon after Homosassa and shortly thereafter, was diagnosed with lung cancer.  She passed away on Monday, October 14th.  She will be missed. 

On Thursday the 17th, we packed up Michele's Excursion & left for Biketoberfest in Daytona Beach.  The kids go every year but this was my first time to return there since the 1950's.  We stayed at the Hilton where our room was as close to the beach as possible and there was lots of grass for Dahli.  Just loved the 'toes in the sand' and the roar of all the bikes running around the streets.  Quite a change from the usual quiet life I lead.  I posted some pictures at the link below.
