I had a list a mile long for Sunday.  After a way busy few weeks:  weekend before last was Winefest in Palisade, and then this past Saturday was Octoberfest here in GWS... PHEW.  Yesterday was
my day to catch up, and start on some art that is due to be delivered a week from  today.  Never mind that I have known about this show for months, and it's only one piece, maybe two mind you. 
Dan and I was invited to go on a motorcyle ride with two good friends: Scott and Vona.  Then Dan asked Bob and Linda to come too.  Everyone was meeting for breakfast here in town so I opted to go to breakfast then head home for chores.  Well during breakfast, I was getting pangs of longing to go too.  It was a gorgeous day.. fall is staring to come out here in the mtns.  And I haven't been out for a  nice ride for a long time.  So I announced I wanted to come too. Everyone ran back to our house, so I could grab by jacket, helmet and pink high tops and away we went.  That's me and Dan in the front and Scott and Vona behind us.

Over McClure and down into Paonia we went, and the colors were spectacular.  We stopped at the local Harvestfest to scope out the happenings..
Here's me and Vona.. we were cracking up while Linda took our picture.  Then we headed down the road and turned off to head up over the Grand Mesa.  We stopped in Cedaredge to have lunch. Dan and I checked out the RV park in town because next weekend we will be there for Applefest.  I drive over this Friday with my Subaru loaded and will set up my booth friday afternoon.  Then Dan and Marley come over Friday evening in the RV and we will stay two nights in town.  It's a fun weekend.. and I hope I do really well with sales.  I have been doing these to make extra income.. it's a lot of work, but I love the atmosphere and energy of these events.  I am blessed to have Dan help out.. love that man.
I wish I had more pictures of our ride.  I was having such a great time, I forgot to pull out my camera.   These are from Linda.. thanks sweetie.

It's good to runaway every now and then. My hubby is working on his very first bike and wants to get it on the road this year, but realistically it will probably be next year, but he's really itching to get out there. Good luck on your show!
Hugs and blessings
