Hot today, humid and hot we went by the new Summerville Harley Shop today,  nice place,  going to offer full service to the folks out on that end of town now.  My new bike still isn't here, they say it'll be here Tuesday.  I'm impatiently waiting... very impatiently I might add.

The medians and the road sides across the country on our trip, were often loaded with blooming black eyed Susans. I contemplated including a drawing of them during the trip, but never actually did it, so a bit late, but a cheerful memory of a North American wild flower in today's journal.

Gracie missed me I think, she's been stuck beside me for two days now, sleeping on the floor beside me, instead of in her bed, I guess she wants to make sure I don't leave again :-)

Worked today, but mostly I slept so well last night in my own bed, and drank my coffee this morning from my favorite cup sweet pleasures... Home Sweet Home...

Jun 4 - 20 WFR 2017

Women's Freedom Ride 2017 - I kept my personal daily journal as well as a ride Journal.  I'm still working on adding photos to the ride Journal.  It was the experience of a lifetime, and we got to meet the veteran and her service dog that we helped provide for her with our fund raising efforts.

Long day today, fun meeting new people, some mechanical issues for a couple of the ladies but for the most part a smooth trip to Knoxville, we sleep tomorrow in Paducah, Ky.  FYI the blank space on the day 1 page will have photos added later.

More flowers, busy day finishing up at work today, then getting ready for my trip across country.  We have a kick off dinner tonight,  I volunteered to bring the paper plates LOL I'm not much of a cook so no way to mess up paper plates and plastic forks.  I may be able to post some while on the road... I'll be keeping a trip journal as well as my usual journal.

Nice dinner out tonight with a few of the ladies who will be going on the ride on Saturday.  Tried out my pyramid brush to see what kind of marks I could make.

#EDiM31A self portrait. Started packing the FLRT, today, she's back from the Harley Shop and working like a top.  Trips to the wine store and the bank, charged up my helmet, phone and tooth brush, got the recycle bin loaded and out on the curb for pick up tomorrow...  Two more days... and we're off on our fund raising ride, to provide a service dog to a female combat veteran. Any and all donations welcome

#EDiM30 A shoe.  I drew one of my motorcycle boots tonight, finished up vacuum packing my clothes.  Time to feed the dogs and get some rest.

Book 44 - Title Page

Book 44 - This is the palette and colors I'll be taking on my trip out West with the Women's Freedom Ride starting next Friday if the weather man is right in the rain.


#EDiM29 an animal.  I hope a bird qualifies as an animal,  so on Memorial Day had to draw an Eagle.

#EDiM27 Something old, how about a Lava Lamp, not antique old, but other than a self portrait of my old self, the oldest thing around here today.
