We spent the day downtown, checking out the sales where we picked up more shirts on sale as well as two sweatshirts. We also lucked into a good buy on a trailer hitch for Big Red. We found a few miscellaneous items...Buffalo Nickle vest extenders for Stu (and then he found some great ones with the fire department logo so had to grab them as well), a custom Red Knights MC derby cover for Big Red, two flags for my bike (Stu plans to make me a custom sissy bar flag holder for one or both of them, and some beeswax product to treat and waterproof leather (of course Stu had the "girls" treat his boots with it first...LOL!)
When we stopped for lunch, I spotted some good friends from Florida. I knew they were visiting in Deadwood but hadn't made contact yet. I ran out of the restaurant and managed to snag them for several hours of chatting. It was great to see them and catch up. We hope to meet up with them this winter while in Florida where they now live.
After leaving them we wandered some more, took a bunch more bike and people photos, stopped in One Eyed Jack's for a drink, took more photos, then stopped for a great dinner of Fish and Chips (Cod and Curly Fries....yum!).
You can check out the photos in our SmugMug album, 2010 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and the companion album, 2010 Sturgis for Adults (this one requires a password...sturgis...if you are easily offended by nudity then do NOT view this album).
Now on to some more miscellaneous....
I forgot one other lady rider blog...I think I follow too many. Check out our good friend Sharon's blog as she rides from GA to WA to meet up with her son. She is now on her way back home. She is a full-time RVer and fairly new rider. Strong and independent....she rocks!
Recently there seems to have been a spate of RVing friends with personal or family illnesses. We are fortunate that in our lifestyles we can change plans as needed...like having plans set in Jell-O. But I know some of these folks really wish they could let the Jell-O set up a little more. Sigh....our heart and best wishes go out to all of them!
We think we have picked out our puppy...she's a little female pit-boxer from the second litter of Stu's daughter's household (Didi, the best little pit bull I have ever known and Pickles, a rescue Boxer with the sweetest personality). We were fortunate to not have been in the area when the first litter was born. Now with the unexpected arrival of the second litter (yes, she IS getting SOMEONE fixed), we are hooked.
She doesn't have a name yet but some are under consideration.
- BB for Betty Boop
- PB for Peanut Butter (her color) and her heritage (Pit-Boxer)
- Pebbles which kind of goes with the PB
- Seadhna which is Gaelic for wayfarer or traveler (pronounced SHAY-na)
- DG for Daddy's Girl and Donna's Girl (LOL!)
Not sure when we will leave here but probably Monday or Tuesday. Tomorrow we are thinking about riding Needles Highway and I still hope to ride the Badlands. Then we head east to Goshen, IN where we will be until Labor Day weekend. As we travel from IN back to MD we hope to visit my son in OH and my step-daughter in NY and maybe even some friends in PA....time will tell. We have doctor appointments starting Sept 13th so that is the drop dead date to be there. LOL!
Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu
