What's new up on our hill?

Happy Friday, everyone!

So....what exactly IS new on Patti J's hillside?
Well, thanks for asking!

I'd been gone a while yesterday, running a multitude of errands, including Wal-Mart.
Sympathy accepted!  Ugh.....can't wait - we are to have a Schnuck's soon,
and I'm so excited that Wally World will have a bit of small town competition!

ANYhoo......as I was saying before I got off subject -

When I got home from running errands, this is what I found on the driveway:


Oh dear....I have not ridden a bike since 1980!
Seriously!

Eeks, they say that one never forgets how to ride a bike - I hope that's true, as it's a lot harder 
at age 60 to get up after a fall than it was at 26, and owies hurt a lot more!

My DH is a keeper - for real!  He is always surprising me with sweet presents!  
My last 'sweet ride' surprise from him was in 2003, when he brought me home a little black 
Z3 convertible for our 30th wedding anniversary.  
I've actually done very well with the Z3 - haven't fallen off of it yet :)

When we get a free weekend, and actually get ON these bikes, I'll be sure to let you know how it goes (or doesn't!!!).

Wish me luck!

Have a great weekend - thanks for stopping by!

Hugs & grins,
Patti J.

Wow!! What a nice surprise to come home to!! Although I must admit I like the convertible surprise better because I haven't ridden a bike since 1980 too!!

AWW!! Your hubby is THE BEST!! What a guy to leave you surprises!! Hubby and SO need to do this and I highly admire what you've accomplished within the last few years. I'm starting that journey myself, but at a slight younger age than you. :)

I bet you'll have so much fun! Enjoy your weekend my friend and crossing fingers that you don't fall!! LOL!

How fun is this, such a great surprise. Yes, your honey is a keeper for sure. No Wal-mart shopping for me either, just hate there stores.
I am temporarily out of commission because I dislocated my shoulder so maybe you will ride for me...lol
Have a great weekend sweetie.
