All dressed up….

And places to go.
Before hubby is relegated to non biker status for a week or so, I wanted to get a ride in.

Riding is the only time I wish there was more padding on my backside.
But what a rush! Yep, still loving it 😀

Bike time

My boys having some fun after dinner.
Doing jumps, and growling at the dog – who had a knack of getting in the way.

Spare moments

There is dew on the grass. Untouched and clean.
A kookaburra flies past. Silent and free.
The dog goes nuts as I walk out the door.
The sun is rising, the fog is lifting.
The roses are waiting for their time to shine.
The house is quiet for a few more minutes,
as I sip my morning coffee.

A little something to keep you going while I work out what I’m doing.
Have a great day 🙂

Rev heads paradise

It’s that time of year again.
Targa. (See last years post here)
We packed up the kids (+1 extra) and dog, (lordy I love him, he was so well behaved, sitting quietly and not phased at all by the cars) taking two cars to Woodbridge to see the start of the today’s time trials over Woodbridge Hill. Thankfully they started on time this year and we were out by 11.
I may love my muscle cars, but a Lamborghini never fails to impress.
I had moved to get a better perspective of the cars and got talking to an old dude. He commented on how big my camera battery was and we ended up discussing the pros and cons of the whole digital thing. It makes us lazy to an extent. We take less care with each picture as we can just delete what we don’t like, if you have a film you pay more attention to what you are doing as there are only so many pictures you can take. I told him I usually delete up to half the pictures I take for one reason or another (chopped off heads/scenery, missed the action, out of focus…..).
I took 85 photos, of which 24 were no good and deleted.
There are now 61 left, which includes one or two family shots. Which leaves me with decisions on which 10 or so to show you. Snap happy and wasteful maybe, the benefits of digital may have made me lazy, but I find I am more inclined to try new things, and play around if I know I can just delete the bad ones.

Have a racing good day 🙂
