I have been in the Keys with my ex sweetie (as of last night). It was relaxing and Fantasy Fest was interesting. Lots of naked swinging body parts painted in interesting places. I am not so sure I know how long it takes to get all the paint off.
Last night I went out taking pictures at a few biker bars of their Halloween parties. Some of these costumes were really interesting. And really out there. My daughters boyfriend came with me to see what my other life is like. Mind you I don't usually go to the bars. But I needed to take the pictures for the magazine. My ex sweetie didn't want me to go take pictures and I don't like being controlled, hence he is my ex as of last night. I doubt I will be spending any more time with him. His alcohol is out of control again and I am not a happy camper with him like that. I have said he can no longer come over if he has been drinking and he said it wasn't going to happen. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted.
My late friend Nancy's husband Danny got married yesterday to a wonderful woman who waited for him to help Nancy thru the end of her life. Patience and love. I am glad he has found happiness.
I hope everyone has had a fun October. I sure did. Life's lessons learned the hard way.
Let the holiday season begin and lets remember why we like it so much.

Weekends have been play time lately. And the weather has been so nice. Last weekend I rode and rode and rode some more. This weekend not so much.
We all found a new biker bar in the Keys. New owners. Cool out of the way place.
My honey took a picture of me up on a bridge on Cardstown Rd. Nice. I was stopped to take a picture of the group coming up the bridge.
Yesterday I was going to ride all day and got kidnapped and pampered at a nail salon instead. A facial followed by a mani and pedi. Now my nails are blood red. Just my color of choice.
This coming week Bud and I are playing hooky with some friends and going to pre fantasy fest in Key West. And get some fishing in also in the lower Keys. His friends want to go play in the Keys, they have a condo just outside of Key West. Pilots sure like to play.
Work is still really slow. Unbelievable. I don't care what anyone says in Washington. Our economy in Florida is in the dumps and getting worse. The restaurants are dead. No wait and no customers. Bars are dead except very late at night. I am in bed long before I see that. Nor do I hang out in bars.
Have a fun week, I will.

I had such a great weekend. I was out and about riding with friends all weekend. Saturday I went riding with my friend Marlon. I love riding with Marlon. This was his first real ride since his wreck in June. I am glad he is back. Sunday he joined another group of friends of mine and we rode around Lake Okechobee. What a gorgeous day. There was 14 of us. We got attacked by little green bugs when we rode up to the retaining wall for the picture. We moved our bikes away from the flying mess. This spot is such a nice picture spot. The lake looks healthy and full again.
I am supposed to work 4 days this week. Yesterday was gorgeous and there is a tropical system moving in for the next 2 days. Go figure. At least I am starting to make money again. And it's cooler. Finally.
I am probably spending the day mostly in bed. My son Andrew had been really sick and I seem to have gotten some semblance of it. I am nipping it in the butt with a z pack early.
Have a great week.

Last weekend I went to Key West with my 29 yr old daughter, her boyfriend and our very good friend Rheo.
Oh my. We had a ton of fun. Rheo wanted Key West to be gayer than it was. I am just not sure what he was looking for. It was a much quieter weekend in Key West than I have ever seen. Quiet.
The snorkling sunset trip was a blast. The weather and water was perfect. Rheo was getting water logged and I had to drag him back to the boat. He wanted the boys on the catamaran to come and get him. I just laughed.
The rain finally stopped and the heat dropped to the mid 80's. Now this is why we live here. I am riding all weekend alone and with friends. My honey is in Iowa with his boys. He has his hands full with the kids for sure. Both boys are having huge issues with their lives and the divorce. Very sad.
I hope all is well in your corner of the world.
