New bike

Zoom zoom!!

I hope you're having a fabulous weekend! I am!
I got a new bike, a 500cc Piaggio scooter.  Sold the 250cc Vespa, so this is a big step up, a "big girl" bike.

Took it for a little spin yesterday, what fun!  It has so much more power than I'm used to.  I had to slow down a bit on the highway, I did 70 mph in no time!

The perfect thing for our 22nd Anniversary, 
lunch and a momo ride!!

I'm proud to announce the next Artful Gathering blog hop is

Pam Carriker!

What a small world it is.  When Pam and I met each other on the Artful Gathering website, we found out we went to the same high school, Federal Way High in Federal Way, WA.  Pretty cool. We didn't know each other, I was there WAY ahead of her. But we both had the same art teacher!  

So look at her now!!
