Get Your Motor Running

We had a very exciting weekend. We danced, we played, we spent time with loved ones and we put a few miles on my bike for a good cause.

On Friday, our friend Kim came back from Wisconsin to pick up the last of her things (she moved back up there not long ago). We met her and a couple of other friends at Crow Creek Tavern for dinner and drinks. After a bit of catch up and celebration, the ladies (I was the only man present) decided they wanted to trek over to Fishbonz to hear Imzadi rock the house. Those guys are awesome. If you ever get a chance to hear them play, I suggest you take advantage of them. They put on one helluva show.

After dancing the night away, we had to part ways, assuring Kim we would come see her in the great frozen north. Yep, I’m thinking that will likely be a summer trip, given my tremendous aversion to the cold.

Saturday, we participated in our first ever Handlebars and Hotrods Poker Run. The event raised funds for Cancer Sucks. Nearly a thousand bikers rallied to the cause this year. It was an awesome spectacle to behold, let alone participate in for this neck of the woods. It was a beautiful day for a ride. The sun finally decided to come out. I’m guessing she wanted to get a good look at all of the bikes.

The run began in Catoosa at Cherokee Casino where they had several vendor booths and a bike show set up to start the day off right. We made our way east to Will Rogers Downs in Claremore to pick up our first card. We spent some time socializing and checking out the other bikes before heading out to Meyers Duran Harley Davidson on Brookside in Tulsa. The next stop on the route was at Hooters in south Tulsa. After that, we visited Action Toys in Broken Arrow. We then ended up back where we started in Catoosa.

It was a great time for a great cause. This is an event we will definitely participate in again. We made a few new friends and a whole lot of memories on that trip.
Sunday, of course, was Mother’s Day. Did you remember to call your mom? We went out to see my mom and had a lovely visit. My son, actually spent the whole weekend with her, so I think she was even happier to see us than normal. Just kidding, they had a great time. After we left her house, we went to visit my wife’s parents and had a nice visit there as well. It was a great way to spend a Sunday.

Since I didn’t take time to post over the weekend, I wanted to take a second to wish all of the Mother’s who read this blog a belated (though still quite heartfelt) Happy Mother’s Day.
So, what did you do over the weekend?

Great weekend you had!

My brother and I went to southwestern Oklahoma to check on our little Mama. She was doing pretty well. Saturday, we stocked her up on groceries. Sunday, sat around sipping tea and coffee and talking about old times. It was good.

In the evening, my son called from Kentucky. He gave me an orchid plant 3 years ago and it bloomed for Mother's Day!

Wow, that sounds like a good day, Breazy.

that's a fact on both counts, Carrie. :D

ah, if only you guys lived closer, Lime. We could go riding together. :D

that is amazing, Donnetta. What are the odds that it would bloom that late and ON Mother's Day?
