Morning Y'all. I'm up at the crack of 10 today. Night shifts and a head cold whipped my azz. Went to bed before 9 last night!

Miz made me a pot of Dunkin Doughnuts medium roast before she and the girls left for school, but I slept so long the coffee pot timed out. Having to micro wavy, so using the big mug this morning(if I can call it morning).

Flame-somehow I have missed almost all of that rain! It rained like hades about 4 miles from here and beyond. It took me a long time to get to work Sunday night. I rode Betty this weekend, and that means no saddle bags for rain gear. So, I rode around the rain. I got lucky and it worked! Nothing worse than starting a shift out soaking wet. I tried before.

Today I need to work on some farm chores a bit, then try and finish up my saddle bag install on BB. I need to go up to my Bro place in the upstate and pick up the triples he modified for me for Betty, so need some storage.

I am hoping this coffee last a while. Still feel tired, plus it has become stupid humid hot here in the last week or so. I hate that. Only like 89 or 90 temp, but heat index is like 10 degrees higher. I hope today will be cooler out with the cloud cover. Take it like it comes.

On my radio today: Iron Horse. They are a bluegrass group that plays tributes to rock bands. The one I am listening to now is called Black and Bluegrass a tribute to Ozzy. So yeah, Crazy Train by a bluegrass band.

Happy Tuesday XLF!

It's been rain on and off here in Evans, Ga. Glad I took the truck. Although the gas light came on as I was close to work. I refuse to fill it up cause it hurts my feelings. I add $20 at a time.

In my universe. I have a 3 lb toy chihuahua follow me around as I spill coffee stumbling around in the morning.
Then licks it off the floor. No wonder she is wired.

Im having a cup of Dunkin Doughnuts medium roast this morning. Waiting for the rain to move along. I plan to ride to my friends house in the upstate to pick up my triple trees and steering stem he milled for me.

I dont mind the rain so bad, but I just washed the damn bike yesterday!It never fails, when I wash the bike I wind up riding in the rain the next day. Oh well, my coffee is my consolation prize.

The pot is full and I am only going to drink a cup or two. Have some if you like.

Good morning, my friends. I'm sipping on my coffee at work. I need to guzzle it. Everyone tries to talk to me or get me to do things when I haven't had enough coffee to do anything. Rude. Can't wait to hear about the triple trees going on, Cotton. I've got Bruiser on the lift for the pipe swap. The o2 sensor plugs came in yesterday, so I just need new exhaust gaskets for that to happen. Oh, and money. C'mon...Payday!

Fast approaching Friday night... I'm pausing on my way to the kitchen with a big decision to make... more coffee or is it rum o'clock??? Decisions, decisions, decisions
