Are you ready for more laughs?

We rode the motorcycle to pay the sales tax and get it licensed.  We stopped at Wal-Mart to get a few things Cliff needed for Lightning (our bike) before our planned trip this weekend, and also went in a couple of other places.  At each successive stop, my hair looked worse than the before; Cliff put that orange baseball cap on me before we went into Walmart, figuring anything would be an improvement. 

I got some strange looks, but I can understand why:  Here's an aging woman wearing a purple-fringed leather jacket, an orange baseball cap, and old lady shoes.  I'll bet I've set the "biker" image back fifty years.

There were some summer cotton hats on clearance in Walmart for fifty cents, so Cliff helped me choose one for myself, and one for each of the granddaughters.  Looking at the above pictures, though, I think the hat looks just as silly as the cap!

That does it, I'm buying a do-rag next time we're in a bike shop. 

I don't know when Cliff and I have had so many laughs.

Attention: Reader's of Mosie's blog...
Yes, my mother knows what a do-rag is.  There are several reasons for this.  My husband and I regularly wear them for yard work and such.  My girls wear them in the summer to keep their hair out of their faces.  Charlene and Pat wear them on the bike, for the same reason that Mom needs one.  Yup.  Mom's cool.  Very cool.  Go back in time about 10 years and I'd SLAP YOU DOWN for saying that I'd think that.  Mom's cool...that's for sure.

It great to hear of a couple having so much fun. Go for it! I don't guess we wear do-rags in Texas 'cause I'm old and I don't know what that is. Paula
