With as busy as I have been, I’m so thankful the summer temperatures have hung around into the first days of fall. My last “weekend” was absolutely beautiful. Perfect for a convertible ride up the river road and lunch on the winery deck overlooking the river.
And because I had some overtime this week, they MADE me leave work at 1:45 today. I raced home, jumped into my jeans and onto my Shadow. Since we’ve made the decision to sell the bikes, I have let my registration expire. But I have 2 more days of being legal, and I wanted one last ride. We headed up to a nearby lake and sipped on sodas while gazing at the beautiful water. All the way home, I doubted our decision to sell them. Maybe I should extend my sticker one more year? Do they really take up THAT much space in the garage? But then I think about Greece, and how I really wanna go back, and… *sigh*…. Can’t I just do both? I suppose I’ll let fate decide for me. I mean if NOBODY buys them, then I’ll HAVE to keep riding. For the sake of the bike, of course.
With the onset of fall, the hotel has slowed down a tiny bit. All the families are settled back into their school routines, but the conventions have taken their place. Just recently Joyce was in town, bringing thousands of ladies with her. They were a good group, and fun to host, but there sure were a LOT of them. And in the next couple of months, there will be 2-3 more religious conventions in the downtown area. Not all are as nice. Perhaps you remember?
As well, the Cardinals have won their division once again and are heading to the post season! The more they win, the better business is, so unless you’re a die hard something else fan, then put on your red and cheer us on!
‘cuz no matter how much I complain about how busy our hotel is, it’s better than playing host to the crickets.
