Friday Vicky and I went for a nice dirt ride at our local OHV area, Prarie City.  Vicky was on her DRZ400SM doing great. After the ride I wanted a hot dog at Costco $1.50 with a drink.

Get out on your bikes and you will be happy.

Vicky and I have been hanging out for the entire day at the hotel trying to learn how to use computers and this new WordPress stuff. So watch us learn. I am basically computer illiterate.  Vicky also told me I can not say any cuss words on her site.
