Wow, what a day!

After getting home from early Church, I saddled Blue up and rode in the pasture.  His feet, which had refused to grow for so long, seem to be in need of a trim, finally.  For some reason he is shedding early this year;  when I curried him, handfuls of hair were coming out, as though it were spring.

At 11:30, Cliff and I got on our other "Blue", the Honda Gold Wing, and headed to his sister's house.  After eating corn bread and beans there, we all headed out for a ride, with temperatures heading toward sixty.

We made a stop at Powell Gardens, since the admission fee is very low this time of year.  I can see how it would be breathtakingly beautiful when flowers are blooming, but, as Cliff said, "It's a place where city people can get a taste of the country."

He's right.  And there's no need for folks like us to pursue such places, since we have our own nature gardens at home.

We didn't spend a lot of time there, because we were all anxious to be on the road again.

Cliff and I put another 100 plus miles on the motorcycle.

After coming home, I made potato soup, and the troops all came for supper... troops meaning my daughter's family and Pat and Charlene, who went home and got their car before rejoining us. 

Finally, with everyone gone home, I wrote my daily poem and sang my daily song... plus another one.

Another good day.

Yummm... potato soup!  One of my favorites!  My mom used to make that for us because we were running short at the end of the week, and that was considered a poor mans meal.  Poor man, my fanny!  I would take that poor mans meal over just about anything else.  Potato soap rocks!!  
That reminds me..  I'm gonna have to make some of that really soon.  

Darn you Mosie.. Now I have a craving for that soup! lol

My ma isn't a great cook -- but I sure loved her potato soup.  Do you add bacon or chunks of ham?  Now I'm all hungry again and have to go raid the kitchen.  Again.  LOL

Sounds like you had a nice day.  Thanks for sharing your pics.  My husband would love for me to ride with him on his motorcycle, but I'm a chicken.
