First child getting married.

Wow where does time go?  My oldest daughter gets married on the 16th June.  My first to get married.  Wow - almost 27 years since she was born.  I sometimes sit and think about all the water that has flowed under the bridge all these years. I have had so many adventures in my life, and now that I am in a new phase in my life, it will certainly be bringing me new adventures too.

The wedding alone brings many thoughts to mind, what to wear, who will be there, will it all go as planned.  As we did with my wedding all those years ago - I certainly dont believe in the amounts of money that are spent on weddings these days.  So we are doing a potluck reception and a very small guest list.  Phew thank the way - would it be appropriate to show up on a motorbike as mother of the bride??? haha  no I guess not!

Today I went back to work and did a half day.  It was good to be back at work and then I spent the afternoon checking out a couple of bike shops.  I managed to find a set of knee and elbow pads for my grandson, so now to find some pants that I can put these pads into.  I really want to make sure he is as ATGATT as much as I am.

Since my daughter and her fiance dont blog and wont see this, I can give you a sneak peak at my daughter in her wedding dress.  And my sweet little baby grand daughter.

Tonight I went out an joined in with our Alumni riding group for an evening ride.  I was so nice to be out riding again, although the shingles have gone I still have a lot of nerve pain from the shingles virus.  I hope it goes away soon, with this long weekend coming up I hope to get some new rides in.
Here is our group from the ride this evening.

Well goodnight everyone - I have a terrible headache so its time to go to sleep.  Ride safe everyone, especially since its a long weekend.


  1. Sounds like you are going to have a busy June with the wedding coming up. Your daughter looks lovely in her dress. I bet she is excited.

    I am with you on being frugal for the wedding. Of course Troubadour and I eloped so we might be biased on that.

    Glad you are feeling better.

    1. Thanks Trobairitz - eloping sounds romantic. I do feel a lot better although the residual pain doesnt seem to want to go away anytime soon.
      I hope you are getting lots of wonderful riding in too.
      Take care

  2. Shannon looks lovely! I think it would be awesome if you rode your bike! You could decorate it! Your bike is so much a part of you, strong and independent. You rock! I like small gatherings they are o much more friendly and comfortable. It will be a great day!

    1. Aww thanks Dar, you are right, maybe I will decorate my bike! haha I can just imagine the looks on the ex's family. It might be worth it just for that. lol
      I like small gatherings too. Im just holding my breath until after the event. Some things are over shadowing it for me though. But I will try to keep it inside and then go for one heck or a ride the next day to blow all those feelings away. Its great to be able to ride and yell into a helmet and know one will know or hear! haha

  3. Excellent Working Dear Friend Nice Information Share all over the world.God Bless You.
